Hi, my girlfriend's 2001 Eclipse 6 cyl. is quickly overheating when stopped at red lights with the A/C on. With the A/C off, it does not overheat. When it does overheat, and the stop light turns...

Check to see if your radiator coolant fan runs with the A/C on. It should run constantly with the A/C on, and even with the A/C off the fan should come on when the coolant reaches 220 degrees or better and stay on until it cools down below 200 degrees.
The problem is that you're not getting enough ambient air through the radiator.

Water on floor on driver side front seat

It could be the heater core. Usually it leaks on the passenger side, but it could be running down to the driver side. With you stating it has overheating issues, that's why I think the heater core. If this is the case, usually the whole dash will have to come out.

Problem with heater blowing cold air 2001 eclipse spyder + 1more

You could have a couple of issues.
Heater core
Radiator blockage

You should not drive the car to avoid overheating the motor. Have the system checked by a mechanic. You could simply have air lock.

Youfr front end is either wheel balance if your steering wheel shimmies side to side or if it shakes up and down it may be alignment. Neither is good for your tires, Try the balance first (cheapest fix)

Engine sounds very loud on 2001 eclipse spider

it sure sounds like you need a timing light and a tension bar to tighten the timing belt you can't run it around for too long with it loose could cause damage to such a compact engine. Try loosening the nut/pulley that is attached to the loop shaped eyelette, hard to explain (it's made for the bolt to slide in) loosen just enough to put some tension against the belt and then tighten while still pressing against the tool of leverage careful not to damage what you are prying against. This will most likely help but you will most definately need to re time as the belt is no longer in the correct position.
