Rough idle, leaking oil ...

Rough idle, leaking oil

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?

No. I'm taking it for a tune up in the morning. Wondering what to expect.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mitsubishi?

2005 galant se

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Galant yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet. The problems just started. This was never a primary vehicle now it is. For the past three weeks I have been putting about 2000 miles a week on her. No the engine is idling rough. Its never sounded like this before.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I know a timing belt is needed but financially I can't swing that right now. And I have no ac so likely my compressor failed
