Okay, wifes car (2.7L 2000) is in the shop getting the seals changed on her car. While the tech had it opened up I went over and looked at it (looks very good by the way for 100,00+ miles) and asked about the water pump seal...I don't want to go through having to fork out a **** ton of cash to get that done later on down the road, even thogh the tech said it appears to be fine. He quoted around $49.00 but installation would be free since he is at that point anyway. Plus the water outlet thingy that sits right in from of the upper plenum is leaking really bad, I have the part and that too is no charge. Is that an aqurate quote for the H2O pump? Or...do you think I would be fine with leaving original in there as it seems to be fine? We did not budget for these extra things. Oh, spark plugs as well...ORIGINAL PLUGS!!!!!!! Yeah yeah, my fault for not getting them done sooner. I am leaning towards doing it...seems stupid not to. Give me a warm fuzzy guys. Please.
