Yes, the plan is to replace the water pump and gasket, upper radiator hose gaskets, and oil pressure sensor when the tensioner and belt are done.
Would replacing the heater hoses vs. just the o-rings behoove me given the mileage?
I've had a slight coolant leak for the past year which you commented on recently. You mentioned the thermostat and O-rings especially difficult to replace as they are under turbo. Does anything need to come off to access it? Parts needed are the thermostat, therm. gasket and therm. housing gasket...anything else?
Where is the coolant temperature sensor located, and is it easily accessed?
Sorry if this is long...I've owned two 9-3's with the 2.0 and have always been able to find and relatively easily replace parts myself. I have the 2008+ Haynes manual but it doesn't cover the 2.8 motor. Thank you for any help you can render!
