My service mechanic says the timing seal cover is leaking (2009 RX) it's a $2500 repair. It's an expensive repair because they have to pull the engine out to get to it. Anyone else experience this?

I'm having the same problem (leaking timing cover) on my 2008 Lexus RX 350 (with 158,000 miles) - is this a common problem? The quote for replacement is $3,300.

I haven't repaired it yet. What I've learned: 10 year old cars get leaks. As long as the oil levels are being maintained and the leak is minor drip - apparently, it isn't critical. Did the $3,300 include replacing the water pump? My estimate did not and when I asked they said yes, it should be done too.
