I have a 96 that is leaking coolant around the back of the timing chain cover, so I had to take the water pump off. The bolts are all rusted and unhappy. I've tried cleaning them, but it doesn't seem to help.
I asked the dealership [yes, I was desperate] but they said they couldn't get them for me.
Any idea where I might get another set? And how to prevent it from leaking again and having this happen twice?
These are the bolts with the heads at both ends...the really long ones.
Before my fruitless dealership foray, I tried both Oreilly's and the local fastener shop. These weird bolts don't come on the spinning display at the parts store...at least not in my area.
Can you think of any other place that might have them?
