jccool43 is on a distinguished road
Icon6 should i pull the motor?

water pump is leaking so i bought a timing belt and water pump kit with new seals and pulleys, but I have a major oil leak on the other side of the engine , my guess is main seal, and I also have a dented A pipe on the exhaust, some ripped axle boots, and I need to replace or drill out my catalytic converter. The clutch is old too, but was not intending to replace it yet but possibly icould. the car and engine have 250 k on it , still pulls hard, idle great, etc.

should i just do the water pump and timing belt , and leave everything else alone, since i have such high mileage? or should I pull the engine, and fix all the things i mentioned? what do you think?

its a manual 2000 h22a4

Just do WHATEVER you have to do to fix EVERYTHING. It will be worth it and you will be glad you did. It will be easier to do everything with the motor out. It's annoying to fix one thing then another and over and over again. Just do everything at once, and be done with it drive another 100,000 miles worry free. Take care of your car and it will take care of you.

Pull it, replace all the seals, fresh fluids, drop it back in.


If you're technically inclined, have experience doing any of this work, an engine hoist and place to perform the job - it's all doable in with only a days downtime as long as no major issues occur.
