What about your timing belt, idler, and tensioner? All these parts need to be renewed every 100k/10 years.

Only the water pump was leaking... I have a worse problem now!! After R&R of water pump and replacing belt I cannot hand crank my crankshaft pulley and my car is "off timing". I also cant get the 30mm nut loose to remove the pulley (hand tools only)... Please help!!

Get a longer bar or remove the plugs so you can turn the crank easier.
