Water leaking from Timing Cover
yes, the water pump bolts right through the timing cover. It could just be your water pump leaking down making it seem like its coming from the timing cover but in regards to your question yes. CHeck your engine oil and make sure its not milk-like which would indicate coolant/water is leaking and circulating into the motor which would be a big issue.
I did no water in oil but water pours out as quick as you put it in.
