Default leaking cam seals

I just was doing an oil change and noticed what appeared to be my cam seals leaking? If this common for a wrx at.80k? How much am I looking to drop to fix this?

Oh man - that COULD get expensive if the cam bolts don't play nice.

I would STRONGLY recommend doing the front main seal and the timing belt with idlers at a minimum while you're in there. Sure, it's early, but you have to take all that out to get to those anyway.

TIC got it right, since your there, just get it all out of the way.

We're doing a fix like that now, the vehicle had it's timing done at a different facility along with a pump and now it's gotten bad enough that the belt is saturated and in need of replacement. Do it before you get too far along and things get worse.

The other gentleman just now started seeing it sweat under the cover, he's going to use his Subie bucks and see what they'll do for him, didn't know they existed so throwing it out there.

Do it once do it right. And ya save money. As it only costs parts barely any labor to install new timing components

Labor shouldn't really be more than a few hundred, with the materials and fluids and all you'd be looking around 1200-1500 bucks depending on which components you choose to go with.
