These days a tuneup is usually just spark plugs. You can also install new spark plug wires and if you want to spend the money, a new coil pack. It won't hurt to run a good fuel system cleaner through a tank of gas like Seafoam. Replace the air filter while you are at it.

Right, your basically looking to maintain your car, which is a good thing. Time to do some research since this is your first car. There isn't enough time and room to tell you what to do step by step but I'd suggest getting a chitons book at your local auto parts store and read and study it. Maybe pick one up at your local library. Look online for help on Taurus forums and general car forums for help. What I would do is change the fluids, filters, spark plugs, wiper blades, check the brakes, hoses and other rubber components and repair anything that is not working correctly. Ask if you need help. That's the way we all learned.
