What is it leaking? (Oil, coolant, fluild.) Where is it leaking at? (Under hood, exhaust etc.). When does it leak and how badly? (Only while driving, when idling, etc.)

It looks like its leaking behind the water pump out of a small hole on the block {coolant}

Are you sure it isn't the waterpump itself leaking? It can leak causing it to appear to be leaking from the block. They will leak when they begin to fail

The work is extensive. It is an O-ring failure. 16 hours labor. Will you do it yourself?

It is behind the front timing case.
