Its a pretty common engine with to many parts to carry spares.

If well maintained you should be good to go.

If you think some common parts are going to fail, change them now.

Coil packs. And I have a scanner that tells me which cylinder is missing. They are the only parts Iíve needed.

Just a spare serpentine belt and the tools to replace it. Not that they're prone to break or anything, but if you're out in the middle of nowhere and it does, it's nice to have one on you.

As a service manager, I learned from my customers. Before going out west, I bought a spare serpentine belt. Upper and lower coolant hoses. A spare spark plug and a spare coil. No alternator. If that goes out I will start the generator to keep the battery charged until I get to the next town.No starter. Too heavy and they usually act up before going out.
You canít carry everything but I just carry the things that are prone to leave you stranded. The coil and spark plug would not leave you stranded, but they are small and cheap and no hassle.
As for the alternator, I actually had one go out just as I was leaving Disney world. I started the generator and drove eight hours, to Atlanta, after dark without any problem.
The starter is bulky and heavy and I have never had one go out in 66 years of vehicle ownership.

Closely inspect the radiator(s) to assure they are not bug-jammed or filthy resulting in lower cooling air flow.
