Love is grand. Usually at least a couple grand.
Yup. The oil is probably leaking past the front main seal. The “belt” I assume is the serpentine belt, and that’d get changed when the front seal was done.
As to the “steering wheel pulley”, are you referring to the power steering pump pulley? If so, that should not be an issue, as it’s driven by a belt that will be replaced when they do the front seal.
But you’re gonna want to get a good going over on his car before spending too much. Oil can be and often is forced past the front seal by worn out cylinders/compression rings/oil rings allowing excessive blowby to pressurize the crankcase excessively. There’s an excellent probability that this engine is shot. If I’m right, than spending all that loot to change the front seal willl be a waste of money. As a minimum, you should have a wet/dry compression test performed.
Oh, and no dirrespect meant, but you should have started a new thread. The conversations can get mixed up when adding to the thread of another.
