Is yours a Coupe DeVille or Sedan? I have an '87 - very similar other than you have a 4.5 and mine has the 4.1. If you have some mechanical ability, they're reasonably easy to maintain. One thing I would suggest is hit eBay and see if you can find a GM service manual for your car. They're usually available for 25-50 bucks, but will pay for themselves many times over if you can do some of your own work.
