Don't know about the 97, but I have a 99 escort, 00 corolla, 00 camry and 98 Suburban (though thats diesel so a diffrent animal altogether)... prior to that an 86 and 88 vw quantum and golf respectively... once electronic ignition became standard, there wasn't much "tuning left to do". Change the spark plugs, wires, cap an rotor, pcv valve, air filter, and fuel filter and I think you did a "tune up". With platihnum plugs an such you don't change the plugs often (like once every 5 years or so... depends on the plug, look in your manual). Get the Bosch warranteed wires from a place with lifetime warranty... remember where you bought them..., anything less will fail...
O2 sensors and catalytic converters can be a horror show. Aftermarket replacement catalytic converters cost a few dollars (about 1/3 of dealer cost) but they contain about 1/5th of the metals needed for catalytic conversion, so they fail in about 1 to 2 years... if you plan to keep the vehicle longer, plunk the money down, of you like replacing the things, get the aftermarkets, again a leftime warranty would be a neat trick, O2 sensors - sometimes you can get away with a 35$ universal from the discount shop, I did nonthe vw's, I did not on the toyotas....
