What is the problem

I had a car accident with a few scrapes and one big piece of damage on the back. I have an estimate, but it seems really high. How much would it cost for a few repairs or at worst to replace the whole door?

Major problem? minor problem? Dealer repair, or good local shop?

When I turn the key to the on postion there are times the engine will not start. When I jiggle the key and keeping turning the ignition on and off several times the engine will start. It is as though ther is no electricity to the ignition.

I understand the need to replace the timing belt, but is the water pump replacement really necessary? It seems very expensive.

does anyone know where the ambient air temperature is located on a 02 xterra

Suspiciouse of a negligent oil change service, since no warning indicators were displayed prior to service. Service performed due to time between services. Technition diagnoses was to replace coil 6. Coil 6 replaced and as I drove off, the car began with the same physical problems as before ans before I could make it back after turning back for the dealership the service engine light deplaned.
