the 99+ MLS 3.8 head gasket doesn't have the same reputation as the pre 99 gaskets, so you are probably fine. would open the radiator cap and check for any signs of oil in the coolant, would also check the dipstick to see if it is milky looking which would show signs of coolant/water in the oil. would look for any smoking out the tailpipe on startup. I'm sure with 100k miles it is in need of some good maintenance which might cure any of the present issues, especially after installing some new spark plugs. would crawl up under it and give it a good inspection, look for any signs of oil leakage, look around the rear main seal area, check for any dripping of fluids.
