Also, consider seriously about replacing the water pump. I have a friend with this exact car, and they had the same problem - the water pump was literally "gone" - when it was pulled and shown to me, I was amazed at the condition - this was the factory water pump and if you can picture what fan blades look like, imagine the fan without the complete blades - they were completely corroded and the pump was seized up - make sure you drive as little as possibe, as this friend had driven on it with the pump in that condition for months, which in turn caused a blown head gasket as well as several other mechanical problems.
unforutionatly your mechanic may be right if the ac compressor locked up it will eat the belt and make the other things not work like the water pump ,altanator,power steering.esay to check though remove belt see if you can turn the ac pump by hand.if you mechanic is worth his salt he will even show you this.
