I would certainly spend a weekend to clean the throttle body and to change the oil and oil filter, the breather filter, sparkplugs, pcv valve, air filter, check the distributor cap and clean it or replace it if needed, check the wireset. Also try doing a compression test. Replace the transmission filter and gasket, be sure to top off the atf fluid with atf+4. add a little seafoam to the fuel to clean out the valves and injectors. if you want add seafoam to the oil about 100 miles before you change the oil. keeping things clean and fresh usually helps. also you might want to check the rear differential, possibly replace the fluid along with the gasket and if you do change the gear oil be sure to add an additive, this helps with all sorts of problems and prevents problems as well.
