Water Pump and Maintenance
Hi - Thanks for the help with the stalling problem that I had. While replacing the sensor, I noticed the Water Pump leaking. I'll be replacing it soon. Since I need to take out lots of stuff to get to it, I will be doing other maintenance while I am in there...110K on the Excursion...
Here is what I am thinking I should replace:
1. Water Pump $249
2. Thermostat $22
3. Belt $26 - should I do the tensioner?
4. Upper Hose $13
5. Lower Home $19
6. Power Steering Pump $140 - It is also flakey
Can anyone recomend other maintenance while I am in there? Powerstrokeshop.com seems to have decent prices for oem parts...do you guys like OEM or other? I can save a couple $$ (maybe $125) by not getting oem, but I do not want to do the job twice...
BTW - this has been the greatest car ever! Other than diesel and oil, i've never done anything to it!
