Water pump isnt bad if you know what youre doing.. 1-2 hours taking your time.

Missing idle and sluggishness and long crank times are indications of poor compression/bad nikasil engines. Google nikasil m60 engines. Lots of info.

I would say it maybe the oil around the rear plugs due to rocker cover gaskets leaking, commom fault as the engine leans back.
