Hi..

 

Hopefully i can help..

 

The fact you do loose water/coolant i asume then that would be something to certainly trace for around the engine in regards to leaks especially around the water pump etc if thats whats happening..One area i would maybe inspect at least first anyway to tie all these things in bar the ABS would be your main auxillary belt as that essentially drives all these things.alternator to charge battery and other electrical systems that rely on the charging system being in good order inc abs / power steering / water pump / air conditioning .to ensure that belt is still intact..not loose or starting fray or even the belt looks as though its burnt ie:- been slipping due to a siezed pulley either the alternator which would be the likely thing to inspect first if thats starting fail..to check each pulley by hand as such you would need to remove the belt.so that could be something to have checked out at least first...I do hope this helps
