Yesterday my 05 1500 silverado with the 5.3 got way hot and is leaking antifreeze. It's been making a weird kinda metallic clicking up front so I assumed it was the water pump. It looks like it's leaking from around the timing chain cover, wtf? Think it's just running that way before dripping or what? Thanks

Water pumps have weep holes....they will leak from there when the seal is bad. Just so happens that the pump is in front of the timing chain cover :)
