    chances are the water pump locked up and tore the teeth off the timing belt.
    as i said before, timing belts are common for failure.
    get it to a shop for a bid.

    if they replaced the water pump, they did not replace the belt?? if they didnt, shame on them.

    you have to remove it to do the pump.
