Some one drove my Truck, long story short It overheated on him. Water is leaking from the Water Pump Gasket between the water pump and the Block. Is that a bad Gasket/Water pump/ Timing Cover? Ive heard all three so far but I doubt its the water pump becausse it almost always leaks from the front of the fan. So I think its the Timing Cover......HELP!!!!!!

The water pump attaches to the timing chain cover the coolant flows through the cover into the block. I'd get it all cleaned up and check to make sure you've got the right location (block to cover or pump to cover) iether way it shouldn't be too dificult to do with hand tools and a bay for a day. If it's just the pump, do yourself a favor and take the arch that mounts all the acc's right off the engine, and lift it up a bit, this will make getting the short bypass hose under it a lot easier to get off.

Good luck!
