Coolant leaks out of timing cover when engine is cool. I already replaced water pump. And radiator a year earlier. I think wrong coolant was added. Should be green, not red. Auto store suggest mixing coolant makes mud, which explains the water pump. Having problems with engine coolant may have warped the aluminum timing cover.
