    As stated , if possible check the owners manual. Judging from your mileage/age of vehicle stated , you don't drive a lot. I would recommend water pump and seal inspection and if in doubt replace them so your not paying again in six months , to pull it all apart again to replace any of them. Many shops (including dealers) are now quoting prices for timing belt jobs and not including anything but simple t-belt replacement (no seals etc.) and many consumers end up finding out the hard way , that inexpensive is not always 'inexpensive'.
