2000 Zetec Sedan - Tune-up?

Hey all,
I have a 2000 Focus Zetec Sedan w/auto trans and it's hit the 184k mark this month. I purchased the car used at 116k in 2006, and had a "tune-up" done at 120k. I can't remember what is considered standard for a tune-up, but I thought you guys could fill me in on that. The car is running really rough at idle and stalls infrequently while shifting from reverse to drive, I think it needs some TLC. I do oil/filter changes regularly BTW. I'm also wondering if its due for a timing belt, and if so would it be a good idea to change the water pump at the same time?
