When you had the timing belt replaced did they also do the waterpump?
I would highly suggest replacing the timing components also. Honestly, On vehicles that the timing belt runs the water pump I won't replace the w/p or the timing components without doing the other. It's cheaper in the long run. Who's to say if you have just the water pump replaced that within a month or 2 or 3 that the timing belt doesn't brake. Then you would be paying the same labor cost to have the belt done. At least having both done, then if anything goes wrong with either it will most likely be covered by the warrantee.
The average cost here in my area is about $1,200 give or take a couple hundred depending on if it is SOHC or DOHC.
