If you post the 8th digit of your cars' VIN we can determine your engine size.
Unfortunately it sounds like it may be the 3.0L. There are 2 passages that go through the timing cover housing from the engine block to the water pump. There is also an oil passage feed to the oil pump that is "overly sensitive" to the wiz wheel gasket cleaner (uses sandpaper grit). Also a couple of freeze plugs on the front of the block.
I'd suggest a professional at least take a look at it.
