I've recently hit 97,xxx miles on my car, Still running good, needs a few minor things. I've replaced/fixed quite a bit on my car, but any suggestions on what needs to be done soon, or what I should be expecting?

Here is a list of things I've done since i've owned the car (Bought with 76,xxx mi)

*I've Replaced the Flywheel and clutch at 81,xxx, as well as changed the Gear Oil in the Tranny.
*The Clutch Master cylinder is leaking down the Clutch Pedal, I've got the new part, just haven't had the time to get it replaced.
*I have new sway bar Links as well, they still need put on
*New shift cable that needs put on
*The driver window is having trouble rolling up as of a few weeks ago, It rolls down just fine, and rolls halfway up, then I have to Push it up while holding the button.
*Tires recently rotated.
*Run synthetic Oil + Lucas, change every 3,xxx mi.
*Recently changed all 4 brakes
*When the car is idling with the AC on, I hear some strange rattle/sqeaking sound that I havn't had time to get checked out
*New ignition in Feb

I work 8 to 5 mon thru friday, and my job requires a lot of driving, so I havn't had a whole lot of time to get these issues addressed.

Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It's what seperates us from the animals... Except the weasel...

Sounds as though your power window motor is getting a little on the weak side, also in which case you forgot to mention it, I'll be the first to say, timing belt, tensioner and pulley as well you may as well do the water pump while you're in there, probably wouldn't hurt to do some plugs and wires as well as a fuel filter. Check/clean the air filter (if K&N or similar, clean, if not, replace). Check serpentine belt and replace if needed also check the tensioner for the serpentine belt.
You know you own a SVT Focus when you are in your living room minding your own business when your SVT Focus throws a rod through the window at you just to get your attention.
