comment Slight pulsation from brakes at 70+ MPH (Replace rotors?)
I've found the NAPA stuff (even the cheap parts) to be among the better quality aftermarket.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about something that could quickly become obsolete.

comment Why would a water pump be run off of the timing belt?
The "engine temperature" is actually the "coolant temperature" The coolant is no longer flowing with the pump no longer turning, so the hot coolant is contained in the block, and the coolant outside will be cooler (how much cooler depends on the exact location of the sensor, outside temperature, airflow, etc. It's often near the radiator's hot side entrance where it'll get significant cooling effect at speed.

comment Should rotors with rust on the rims but not the faces be replaced along with the pads?
Not sure how most daily drivers would need brakes every 1-2 years. I autocrossed my daily driver for many years and still got 5 years out of my brakes. One would have to be driving like a maniac on public roads to burn out brakes in 1-2 years.

On my MR2 and Eclipse, so far I've had to replace rotors each time I've changed brake pads.
