I have a 1995 Honda Passport LX 3.2 liter V6 2WD. I recently bought the car and after Pep Boys put it on a lift for an oil change, found out it had fluid residue on the undercarriage and they asked me to do a steam clean on it. I did unfortunately, and immediately afterwards there was a whirring sound which turned out to be (supposedly) the AC Clutch Assembly or Idler Bearing/ Pulley. Mechanics said that I can remove the belt for A/C and will save $979 repair (Im a single mom). If I have someone remove the belt it will only affect the A/C? I am getting such horrible MPG (like 10-11 MPG) and changing air filter, oil and oil filter, proper tire pressure and fuel additives. Nothing helps. What other things could be causing the poor mileage?
