Question about Cars & Trucks
If the water pump is leaking, it needs replacement. Timing belt is replaced at certain mileage intervals . You can have the belt inspected by a garage. The timing belt does not have to be changed to replace the water pump. If a timing belt is changed, then it is standard procedure to change the water pump, since the water pump is removed when replacing the timing belt.

SOURCE: bent valves 2000 Ford Escort ZX2
a couple bent valves shouldnt be more then a few hundred dollars to have replacedand can be fixed yes, but also the vehicle has to have another timing chain ooput on and be retimed this will probably be a total cost of somewhere in the $800 dollar range (this is only an estimate!!) to replace your entire engine would cost substantially more and in all realit i would try to sell the opother vehicle for parts, trade in, or as a whole and buy another vehicle before i invested the money into a new engine for this particular car

If it is not turning the check engine light on it won't be a sensor causing it.
So you need to go back to basics,Have you replaced the fuel filter lately?
it also sounds like some moisture in the fuel system,beyond that check plugs and coil.

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.

WARNING Do not use any abrasive grinding discs to remove gasket material. Use a plastic manual gasket scraper to remove the gasket residue. Be careful not to scratch or gouge the aluminum sealing surfaces when cleaning them.

Have you checked compression? Ford 2.0L engines are bad about dropping exhaust valve seats. Also are you sure your valve timing is correct? Possible timing belt problem.
