After everything installed, top up coolant. Run engine without radiator cap for a few minutes. Top up coolant whenever necessary. After 5 minutes, turn engine off.
Wait a few minutes and top up coolant. Start engine and top up coolant. Once coolant level stabilises, close radiator cap.
Run until operating temperature and stop engine. Wait for engine to cool down before removing radiator cap to check. Repeat above process until coolant stabilises.
The oil leak and melting timing belt cover indicates you most probably has damaged the head gasket.
You can try retorquing the cylinder head bolts to see if helps.
