Tap all over the frame with a small hammer, do this to confirm damage isn't concealed by some kind of coating. I would hook up a good scan tool and see what's what... timing belt service, clean the throttle body and MAF sensor, maybe change the plugs.

Good luck.

Pressure test the radiator before you change the belt and pump, the plastic parts on the radiator tend to get hairline cracks at this age. The original radiator on my 2002 failed right before a road trip at about 160k, I replaced it with a Denso and I'm at about 178k now.

My 2002 4WD V8 has 177,000 ... I have owned it since 2003 and it has been a low maintenance, low repair vehicle. Very reliable... as it is right now, I wouldn't hesitate to drive it cross country.
