Today I replaced my oil filter housing gasket, coolant tank, belts, pulleys, water pump and a bunch of other stuff.

I'd like to add a tip that helped me keep order of the six oil filter housing bolts. I took an empty box and using a knife cut and twisted six holes in it that roughly resembled the bolt order on the oil filter housing. storing the bolts in the proper order helped me later when reinstalling them.
