All is working right now, but noisy. Since single belt is connected to other major systems, how can I avoid a costly repair when I do not care about having AC, but have to replace the bearing before it freezes up?

Recently, had the radiator changed due to rust deposits. Then when the heating failed changed the thermostats. Still not heating.

Lights out cant see shifter at night.

I have a bit of rough idle at start up. I have placed new plugs (Bosch Iridium) car runs fine once it warms up. I have put in cleaner additive, but still rough idle at start up for about 5-mins before it seems to get better. One suggestion was fuel pump sensor???? No diag codes???
Thanks for your time!

The noises sound like a lose belt hiting under the dashboard.

ABS light comes on and stays on during driving

This happens most every time about 8 out of 10 times

Should I have the water pump replaced as preventive maintenance or just replace it as needed (when it breaks)?

Hi i have a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse GTS, there is no check engine light or anything, but my car seems to be smoking a lot (white smoke) usually when i engage the clutch. I had recently done timing belt and water pump, also recently there was an intake gasket manifold leak which was repaired as well.

Thanks !!
