I don't know anyone whom has bought a 20+ year old car and does not do any wrenching him/her self. At least buy a Bentley manual and read through it.
Basic things should be done all at once, like replaceing all vacume lines as well as hoses and belts.
just swaping parts without proper diagnost is going to get very expensive.
when engine was swapped, did they even do a timing belt / water pump job? new sparkplugs, rotor, cap, etc ? if not. I don't what to say but inform your self first.
sorry if it sounds condecending. but it don't make scense., like kome on, taking car to shop to install a A/C belt ? please.
