  1. Oil leak, not such a big deal as long as you are able to keep the oil level close to full mark.

    Anti-freeze leak, BAD. low anti-freeze level will cause the engine to over heat and will cause it to run poorly.

    It is possible that the water pump has gone bad and is leaking and the water pump is driven by the timing belt. However to be certain I would recommend pressure testing the cooling system first to determine exactly where the anti-freeze is coming from. I also Do Not recommend driving the vehicle without the anti-freeze level being full.

    Anti-freeze/coolant system Pressure testers are available for home use:
