Cleaned up my engine and I dont have any oil spurting out while running but it does seem to be leaking from the top of the timing cover. Guess it's good I have to replace my rad aswell.
I mean it's pretty rare to have it come from the top of the timing cover, usually those ones directly on the front are from the crank seal. If it's from the top area, it's usually the timing housing (interface to engine) on the slope leading down to the passenger side. Around the water pump area. The gap between bolts there for the housing is larger than everywhere else and the gasket will fail.
If that's the case, most will just smear some sort of RTV in the crack where it's leaking and call it a day and have had good results with no leaking for many more years. Sure beats pulling the timing gear housing...
