No "uumph" any more(darnte ask)

babpussxyz.

nothing you have listed is terminal,nor over expensive,;
front brake pads £25
pair of discs £50
front wheel bearing ££68,
oil leaks are not that expensive to cure,probably the cam cover gasget,no more than a fiver I would have thought.
Now one of the heater hoses will cost you over £30 the other about £8
I am not sure which filler hose you mean but it will not be expensive.
So it is going to cost you around £200 in parts,a good service by an independant will set you back another £200(and it sounds as if you need it)For around£500 you should have a nice car instead of a trainee shed.

Agreed. None of the things listed is major either in terms of labor or parts. Most, I would think, could be dealt with on your own requiring only a bit of time and patience. The oil leaks will take a bit of tracking but are usually attributed to an o-ring here or seal there. There are a couple more complicated possibilities but we won't think about that just now. You're not too far off having your 9k righted again. Good luck.
