My friend has a Mitsubishi Ecilpse GTS Spyder, 3 Liter V6. He's had it for 6 months now, and it's falling apart badly. The previous owner neglected the crap outta it. I believe it's been overheated before, as the coolant was twice as orange than Dexcool. Calcium buildup and rust were in the system. Radiator, hoses, and Thermostat were replaced as the Thermostat was forced closed due to all the buildup, which resulted in coolant flying everywhere under the hood. Before all this, he had the timing belt replaced, but not the water pump. Now the water pump completely crapped out, and throws water all over the floor. The last issues are the spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, and coil pack. When I looked at them, (not the spark plugs unfortunately), they've already begun dryrotting. I didn't pull them out due to fear of accidentally breaking them. I know for a fact that the spark plugs haven't been changed for over 100,000 miles. Just sitting in the car alone you feel everything. Do you think that he should keep the car if the mechanic checks out the car after the water pump and other issues have been repaired, or should he just send it off a cliff? (The alternator was changed recently too).
