      when you do the timing belt, do the tensioner, and idler pulleys as well as the water pump.

      the comment of high pressure in the top end and low pressure in the bottom (or whatever) means you need a different mechanic, he doesn't know why he is talking about.

      If the pulleys and such look a little old I doubt it was ever changed to begin with lol. I know when I did mine at 56k the belt looked like new still but one of the pulleys was breaking down already.

      Ok so I got the head off and I'm taking it to a shop today! Do NEED a new head gasket and exhaust manifold gasket? And can the same torque sequence used to put the intake & exhaust manifolds on as I took them off. Because I know the head bolts have a different sequence for removing and putting back on.

      You definitely need get new gaskets, and follow the proper install procedures for the head, the manifolds are not as crucial. but it is the same concept so find them and follow those as well.
