Yo bro, welcome to the forum!

Finally, join ya Very Happy

If you are gg to canserve, you can also DIY everything. Looking at your problem, you need the gasket, and new sparkplug as well.

Plug cable is optional, Chevy's plug wires are rated good for 60K, they can go more than that, so you don't have to change it.

If you are simply addressing your oil leak problem, basically that's all you need. As for coolant, do that only if you decide to go for the timing belt change. The package will include the water pump, replacing that would mean they will drain your coolant, so to replace your coolant do it together with the timing belt. Optional you can also replace your plastic thermostat holder ( can tahan further, since no problem) in another word since your water works will be affected might as well do everything one shot! Laughing

You may also want to consider changing your engine oil as well.

If you are up to it, better for you to get the parts yourself, you might just save a few dollars on that but most important you get familiar with your car and the parts.

If you want to do the whole thing, these are what you need.

1. Timing Belt Package
2. Gasket
3. Spark Plug
4. 3 x 1 litre GM Coolant
5. Aluminum thermostat cover
6. Air filters X 2 (both aircon and your air intake filter)


That's what I can think off at the moment, maybe other bros here would like to add but do so.

When you are doing the servicing at canserve make sure you also get the following done:-

1. Change and replace your brake fluids
2. Change engine oil and oil filter
3. Top up/change steering oil fluids

Tha's all I can think off for now.

Just to note, from the things that you have done so far, you are still using the stock spark cable, would be a cheaper option for you to try to change the cable as the shelf live of the stock cable is between 60K to 80K. Understand that the engine mounting can cost between $400 to $500 and there is no gurantee that the vibration will be gone. Choice is yours as to which you want to do first, and if you decide to change the cable, please do not settle for performance type such as "Sanwa", go for stock would be your cheaper option, unless you can find Magnecor.
