Cat senor code

I was told there is oil everywhere underneath. Definitely valve covers leaking. Front cam/crank seals leaking behind timing cover and the coolant is leaking upfront. Can you estimate how much it will cost to repair and how long to do it?

I was told I need to replace water pump and a timing belt kit. And I'm not sure how much I should be paying for these repairs. My car is a 5-speed manual shift.I was driving it when it cut off. I could not get it started after that. I had sensors changed because that is what the car computer had said what was setting of the engine light. It still would not start.
