Most manufactures recommend the timming belt to be changed between 60k and 80k miles and usually you want to do the water pump since it sits behind belt and tensioner pulleys for the timming belt. So you could probly get away with driving it for another year which could give you time to source a good mechanic in your area and another 365days to set aside money for it.
