Sensors - the only sensors that I recommend replacing without them specifically going bad are the O2 sensors because they do tend to react slower over time.

As for the rotors, they need to be measured with a micrometer to see if they can be machined or if they need replacing. Since we're on brakes, pull the drums and have a look at the back brakes and mounting hardware, spings and the like. Check the rubber brake hoses for cracking and dry rot. If the pedal is a little too mushy for your liking, you might consider replacing the hoses or even upgrading to braided steel lines.


May as well give it the full monty if you're planning a tune up. Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and the PCV valve should be replaced.
