    Would like a project parts list

    My crossover manifold is leaking coolant. I figure while I'm removing parts to get to it I may as well do some preventive maintenance. The STS has about 120K miles. Should I replace the water-pump and/or the belt and tensioner on the pump before they seize I will probably clean the throttle body. Any advice from someone that has been there?
    Any sneaky parts that I will need and can preorder?
    Thanks

    Good luck the bolts on the X-over are harder than hell to get to even with the engine out of the car.

    The WP will not seize. It may leak, but it won't seize. The tensioner bearing is another story. It may last forever or it may go tomorrow. Probably wouldn't hurt to replace it while it's out.

    The creator of the Northstar is a sadist. The bolts for the crossover are a bi**h to remove. I am replacing all 4 'reusable' gaskets to fix my leaks. I am also replacing the throttle body gasket after I had to remove it, the scratchy water pump tensioner pulley and the belt, and the thermostat O ring because of some oozing coolant. There's also a rubber boot on a vacuum line behind the throttle body base that crumbled when I went to disconnect it. Probably a dealer item.. So far I have about $100 into fixing my cooling system. It never gets hot, I just get a small puddle on the garage floor and have to top of the reserve tank.
