You drive a truck Smitty? There is all kinds of examples of them doing similar work. Forklifts to flying and landing planes, in those cases the machine itself is the robot.
I can't imagine a robot having the dexterity to reach all these tight places to remove a part, then applying sealer, or gaskets, or anti-seize, install the part, then verify that they actually fixed the problem
I hate to break the news to you but a robot could do this job and do it much better than any human. The reason you don't see them doing these things is the cost.
We might be many decades away from it but at some point there will be a robot that can perform any job a human can including building, fixing and even programming them.
