You will need to have the engine scanned for codes and diagnosed for loss of spark or fuel. Your water pump is driven by the timing belt, and if the belt broke or water pump seized, then you may have a problem with the engine bending valves. Have the engine diagnosed by a mechanic to isolate the cause of your car's starting issue and verify the component that needs repair.
