i can do a timing belt... done plenty of them in the past. did one last weekend. if you get the kit and i can show you how to do it. it's very simple and easy. you should not have to spend 2K. that is nuts!
make sure you get the bearings with the timing belt.
as for the leaks.. i have to take a look to see where it is leaking at. most of those leaks can be fixed.
