I was changing my oil the other day and when i pulled the oil filter off a large ball bearing fell out. I can see where it fits and from searching around a bit it seems the only solution to this is to replace the assembly. being at best a confident amateur i'm not exactly sure what i should replace while doing this job.
I'm thinking oil pump assembly (obviously)
thermostat and water pump
anything else? any recommendations as to what should be oem?
this price almost seems to good to be true for the oil pump. $65
