My service mechanic says the timing seal cover is leaking (2009 RX) it's a $2500 repair. It's an expensive repair because they have to pull the engine out to get to it. Anyone else experience this?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm having the same problem (leaking timing cover) on my 2008 Lexus RX 350 (with 158,000 miles) - is this a common problem? The quote for replacement is $3,300.

I haven't repaired it yet. What I've learned: 10 year old cars get leaks. As long as the oil levels are being maintained and the leak is minor drip - apparently, it isn't critical. Did the $3,300 include replacing the water pump? My estimate did not and when I asked they said yes, it should be done too.
