Bought an 07 Taurus with 179k that just seemed to need a water pump as a little get around car to keep miles off my brand new Fusion Titanium. Got the water pump completely done and car purrs like a kitten...other than this little gem. I assume I'll have to do a gasket job of the top end since I'll have it apart, but maybe this is a common problem that has a 'tighten this bolt' type of fix? 🤣

Here's the leak in action!

I can't figure out where on the engine this is because it is zoomed in too much. Is it near the timing cover interface with the block? That TC is a very common failure, I have had all three of my Taurus leak in the TC gasket but never from the head gasket.
