I would replace the spark plugs, check the coils, sea foam it, check for cracks in the serpentine belt (if there are it will squeak when running), check/change all the fluids (coolants, oil, tranny fluid ect...) Probably more i'm forgetting.

The axle. The gears that make you go are in there. Key part to the whole function of car moving. Installing quality synthetic gear oil reduces drag, friction, sheer, lowers resistance. Very important and overlooked by many. There is a drain plug on side of housing. Fluid is removed by pumping it out, filled by adding till it gets to top of fill hole. Good luck!
