I just had the water pump replaced, which I was informed was caused by oil leaking onto it from a leaking oil filter housing gasket. Also had the thermostat replaced per recommendation. All that fixed was around $1,700.
Im planning to do the same. Not that hard.
Had oil filter housing gasket done in january. I had new aux belt and tensioner put on because of it, and new coolant. Guess i was lucky with the waterpump then.Did it in a friendly local shop and paid around 500 eur. New gapped iridium spark plugs got installed in that price aswell.

Link to service manual. Can find tightening torques there.
Service manual says to remove injectors but DIY videos show that its clearly not actually needed.

Good luck!
