My 2005 Kia Sedona was cutting out. It on;y has 55,000 miles on it. The garage said it was the crankshaft senser. They said it would be good to change the timing belt and the water pump at the same time. What do you think?

If it is the crankshaft sensor, then your mechanic is actually giving you great advice. Even though it is a little early mileage wise for a timing belt change, you have to remove the belt anyways in order to change the crank sensor. Why pay for the job twice ? You only have 5000 miles left until the timing belt service is due. Make sure he replaces all the pulleys and tensioners when he does the job, I usually buy a complete timing belt kit that includes all pulleys and the belt in one kit. Also, I usually replace the water pump every second timing belt change - at 120,000 miles.
