She needs to be fixed AGIAN

Three weeks ago I started to notice that I was loosing coolant and that little puddles of coolant where under that car. On friday when I got out of work there was BIG puddles of coolant under the car, It looks like most of it is comming from the water pump but I also noticed some drips comming from the d/s lower coner of the rad. I have only had to do 1 water pump in 5 years. So I think I will be taking her of the road for a couple of weeks and doing some work. here is the list

1. water pump
2. Radiator
3. remove A/c system (has worked in a long time)
4. Timming belt and rollers
5. Front seals
6. oil cooler seals
7. lower temp t-stat
8. lower temp fan switch

I started looking up parts and they are big money, $236 for a new water pump and like $300 for a rad ANyway I guess I better start saving.
Is there anything else I should do while Im there??? ANybody have any good links to parts sites?? Any tips?? Thanx guys

Removing the AC system is a pain in the ass - Are you sure you really want to go there? There used to be an bracket to move the alternator to where the compressor is, but I have not seen one in a long time. You will not save that much weight unless you are taking the evaporator out as well - which entails removing the dashboard.

Don't be so quick to replace the radiator - make sure it isn't something simple like a loose hose, or something like the crossover hose getting caught in the alternator fan.

If your oil cooler seals aren't leaking, don't mess with them - that is definately a "let sleeping dogs lie" system.

Front seals can't hurt - make sure you replace all the O-rings behind the seals (on cam and bal shafts) as well as the O-ring on the crank (behind the pulley).

Use care removing the waterpump = lots of penetrating oil on the nuts and bolts - they like to rust and break.

Es geht nicht darum wie schnell man faehrt, sondern wie gut man schnell fahren kann.
