found a small leak! with pic! helppp

ok so my car has still been overheating, i found a small leak where the water pump connects to the block, IT IS NOT THE WATER PUMP ITSELF, it is the block where the water pump connects right under the bottom passenger corner of the block(i think thats what it is) anyways, its a perfect little circle about the size of a small carpenters nail, did my block blow a hole in it or could it be a freeze plug of some sort? ive uploaded a pic and circled the area in black and made a blue line where its leaking

You'll need to get a new timing cover or pray JB weld works. If you get a new timing cover you have to take off the oil pump and one of the screws is tricky. It's not a freeze plug just a hole

Well if anything I would suggest TiG. Really depends on what type of metal it is, if its non ferrous or ferrous, sure you can weld it. If its any type of Cast metal then no you can't weld it. Just replace the cover, it's easier

And I say it's easier to replace it because you gotta take the cover off anyways to weld it.

Wow that's a first, you're sure it's not running off the water pump? It's a $3 gasket lol
