    timing cover has no connection to the coolant. it just covers the timing chain.

    do you mean the water pump??

    you may have a bad head gasket for the mixing of fluids. did you get a shop to verify this??

    The guy that i'm buying it from had it in the shop to see what was wrong with it and it's what they said. If it was the water pump or the head gasket how much would it cost?

    water pump is about 250-300

    head gasket could be as high as 1500.
