I thought Dave's comment was pretty funny. On your '89, though. Make sure that it is not leaking anything. I am assuming that it has been serviced regularly according to the book with fluid changes, etc. Inspect the hoses and belts. Have the cooling system serviced and make sure that there are no leaks in the radiator core and that it cools correctly. Look at the alternator bushings and replace them if necessary. I have read that the ignition module is a popular spare to carry, but have never done so myself. May want to pack a spare alternator regulator just to make sure you have one. How many miles are on it and how well has it been maintained.
