I have an Infiniti G37 2010 Convertible that I have driven for around 50k miles. My car heated up while I was driving, and I took it to a local Infiniti Service center. They said that I need to replace water pump due to coolant leak, and also cautioned me that I needed inner timing cover as gasket started to come come out of inner cover oil galley). I was surprised to learn about this in a relatively lower miles driven car. Have any of you had any similar experience?
Also, they are quoting around $1300 to replace water pump and $2200 for inner timing cover. Since its such an expensive repair, I am wondering if I can postpone the repair or have it done by someone outside for cheaper. Any advice is deeply appreciated!
