CHANGING CAM SEALS BUT WHAT ELSE? TIMING

1995 Subaru Legacy

Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Subaru Legacy 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 180k miles

I have a pretty bad oil leak that I think is coming from my camshaft seals. I figure my timing belt should be changed anyway so can do both at the same time. While I have the car in bits is there anything else in that area that would be a sensible maintenance procedure?

Hi there,

Just the front crankshaft seal, and have a good feel of all the idler pulley bearings.

Thanks for the reply. I'll be certain to give them a good look/feel. I don't have any noises yet so hopefully they're OK.

How about the oil pump? I've found one for $100 but that's still a fair amount if it's not really necessary.

Hi there,

You can have the oil pressure tested if you like, but if you have not had an issue there, don't bother.

Thanks, that makes me feel a lot better about doing this.
