I was at the grocery store yesterday and put a quart of milk back in the cooler and instead am saving that money toward the inevitable engine replacement in the near future

So this weekend I:

Added two bottles of Seafoam and filled the tank
Changed out my plugs

Idle smoothed out a bit after driving 150 or so miles after the work was done. Tomorrow I'm having the transmission serviced.

Thanks again for everyone's tips. They're being implemented...

brake and power steering fluid flushes if the fluid looks aged

I don't think the Seafoam will be enough to remove those hard crystaline deposits from the valves. Also, using a cleaner like Seafoam can loosen some of lighter deposits which can get caught in the piston rings which can score the cylinder walls.

If I were you, I would the get the manual upper induction cleaning done on it if you never had a catch can. After you get the valves cleaned, then install a good catch can if you don't have one already.

Thanks for this.
I now have the following done:

X plugs
X trans fluid and filter changed (not flush)
X rear diff fluid change
coolant flush
X fuel system flush
brake and power steering fluid flushes

I'll be moving on to brake fluid flush next.
