Yep...the whole "shootin" match at Rockauto(TB kit w/pump, crank/cam seals) cost me just shy of $200. Another $250 labor from my mechanic(I know my limitations!) and all is good.I would change the belt anyway... Throw in water pump, thermostat and hoses at the same time... Worry free driving is what you want, right?
I did buy my thermostat and hoses at the dealer - real cheap so going for some other brands is not really worth it. Different thing is when you talk about water pump and timing kit... That you might want to pick up say at rockauto....
You just answered your own question!Lol!!You will have to tear the entire front end apart once again if the water pump breaks down the road but why spend money on something that can last you a long time?
Lol!!That thing is about a hard wish away from totally going. Eek!
Thanks for sharing!
