id go ahead and check everything, brake fluid, rear diff, tranny, hoses, give your sparkplugs a looksie see how their aging look for anything abnormal.
check the pcv valve see if theres to much carbon ect. little silly things.
I usually pull and check everything when i do oilchanges (if i have the time)
