So there was a chirping noise coming from the engine that had gotten a little louder lately but it was running fine. after a while at work i found it....
so I think you see whats gone awry there, it was in for the timing belt and some other things anyways. probably drove it with that locked up or nearly locked up for a good 150-200 miles, back of the belt was mighty glazed and there was atleast one tooth of slack in the timing belt as well. think it'll run a little better?
addendum: saturday we drove 90 miles round trip to a concert with that noise it was making and she had been driving it for about 1.5 weeks, so i just asked she reckons more like 250 miles AND the concert...so damn like 350 miles.
upper radiator hose
blower motor resistor
both wheel cylinders

is what all is being done, most of its done but the belt and waterpump, waterpump wasnt in today for some reason. need to do the blower and resistor.
