try taking a picture of where its leaking from and posting it on here.

you could have a leaking WP or freeze plug,i doubt the timeing cover gasket is the problem.

could even be a leaking hose... but because where it is its hard to diagnose... an easy way to check where, is to get a coolant dye kit. its pretty easy put certain amount in coolant system, run vehicle, use special light to see where its coming from... then we will have a better idea of how to help you out.

or you could have a pressure test done on the colling system,if you got a leak,it will show up.

yes. sometimes depending on the severaty of the leak it could throw you off. which is why i said the dye... either way you will need some tools and someone with some mechanical skills
