UCC replied to your question and said that you need to get a better reading from the computer. He is right! However, purchasing one on the internet and other places you can find them for as low as $29 new and that, lower, or higher used. I have purchased mine for $30 on ebay. I have used it a lot and it functions just fine and accurately. It also clears the codes if you wish it to.
Timing belt is your call. I highly doubt it relates to this problem. Doing the work yourself, WITH a water pump replacement could run in the $100 to $150 range. No one should charge you a $1000 or more. $700 or less is a better estimate.
Get the code and get back to us. Reply on this post what you find.
