Hi,
I have a Hyundai Santa Fe 2005 (3.5 GLS V6). It's milage is close to 120K. I guess I need to change the Timing belt. However, when I am approaching the repair shops for the same, they are insisting that I should also change the water pump. So after reading some of the online forums (which confirms what the shop told me) I gather that it is better to change the water pump. However, they are charging me somewhat in the vicinity of $1200 for both. But online I saw the the parts cost around $160 (for timing belt) and $60 for water pump, and the labor costs max $600 (approx). So together it should cost me not more than $900. But then why are they charging $1200 (approx) ? I live in Pittsburgh, PA.
Any suggestions/opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
could it be the ignition failure sensor? Crank position sensor?
Where are these sensors located in the engine compartment? 3.5L engine.
First, I'm not sure if the engine is 2.7L or 3.5L. In the fall when it started getting cold, the engine was sluggish to start using my remote starter. I use the starter year round, and never had a problem. Since the temps have been near freezing, sometimes the car will not start at all until I turn the key and the clock shows 1:00. The car will be parked for 4 hours, 8 hours or longer and that happens. Recently...in the last few days...I'd turn the car off, pull the key out and the car is still running. It is very sluggish and there are no lights on in the dash, but I can hear and feel it running. I put the key back in, and give it a harder turn to the off position. Another problem I have is when I fill the tank (not topping it off), the engine stalls when turning the car on. I have to rev it for about ten seconds before it will idle normally. That has been going on since last summer, and I had a Hyundai dealer look at it a few months ago. They were unable to fix the problem.
Will not shift
