all motors need timing belts, not all need to be replaced, if your timing of off and you've gone the normal routes to correct timing issues, its very possible that your timing "skipped" this is a medium project for a skilled mechanic since with the newer cars you have to remove and remember all the extras you have to take off, and of course the alignment of the timing please take a moment to rate my reply, and if you need more info, feel free to contact me

Usually if the water pump is leaking it will wet the pulley and fluid will get on the belt.With the engine off can you shove a paper towel under the water pump area and then look for traces of coolant on it?Also,it is common for a water pump to leak then not leak over and over when it is failing.

Check your filter as well as the gas line to see if there's any kinks in the line or damage to the fuel filter.. whatever you went over could've done something to it..

Input shaft speed sensor or out put speed sensor . Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . This would probably point you in a diagnostic direction .

Hi, you wont be able to move the wipers manually as they will be locked by the motor. There is only two obvious reasons why the motor should fail again. The new motor was a poor quality replacement or there is an underlying problem on the car like the wiper motor mechanism has excessive play or is stiff/tight and over working the motor causing it to fail. you need to have a proper check over before swapping it again.

Based on the gasping sound I would think that you need to check the solenoid on the starter. Sounds like it is trying to engage the starter. Make sure one of you battery cables is loose and both are tight on the battery. If you have a tester I would also check for voltage at the battery. Hope this helps.

so the starter was tested but was it tested properly
was a torque test done to check the pinion drive clutch for operation
sounds like either that clutch is faulty or the pinion drive is not being moved out by the solenoid linkage before the starter is engaged

take it to a tyre shop and they will tell you if it is possible
if you have standard 6 "X 15" rims probably not
there should be a tyre decal on the door edge/ opening that states the max. permitted tyre on your vehicle
