I've got a few leaks and whatnot that I've just been living with, most notably the lower engine cover gasket, and this being my daily driver (just rolled over 250k) I feel like its time to just do a bunch of stuff at once and "bulletproof" the car for a while. My indy mechanic talked me in to pulling the engine. This is my list so far:
Timing chain, tensioner and guides
Timing case, manifold, oil pan and valve cover gaskets, crank seals, and all other gaskets and seals that are accessible
Power steering pump (rebuild)
I've replaced the throttle actuator and MAF within the last two years with fresh gaskets throughout the intake tract so I'll probably leave that alone. Recently did the water pump as well, so thats fine.
I'm also going to have him pull the dash and do the evaporator and pods at the same time. Anything else I should do while the dash is out?
Any advice you guys can offer is greatly appreciated!
