    It would help if you included what model and year your scooter is. I can give you a general idea for the pre-81 2-strokes, but the newer models would be a bit different. In general, though, you want to change your oil, your spark plug, check your tires (tread depth and inflation pressure), your lights (if you have them), and on the 2-strokes, check to see that the 2-stroke oil sight glass shows 2-stroke is full.

That's like asking for the Holy Grail ! All i can suggest is to pore through the web and absorb all the ideas and suggestions you can. Save up lots of money while you are doing so. You're gonna need it. Dismiss the cheaper tips and tricks and buy as good a quality exhaust, carb and cylinder kit as you can afford. All depends on what you expect to achieve and how much you've saved. Every scooterist who has tried to tune a Vespa has their own favourites and recommendations based on experience. But every one is different as is every Vespa so these vary wildly. If i was to give you one big piece of advice it's this ......................Keep two fingers on the clutch for when it siezes !!!

All Vespa's old or new run without need of lead as your engine internals are lubricated by either the gear oil or 2 stroke oil.

Takes many attempts to start first thing in the morning and now it won't start and left a wining noise

Sounds like tuning or servicing issue initially, perhaps your getting fuel from a different place and may be contaminated, but now due to overuse the starter is waring, have a professional look at it before it causes more expensive issues.
