Any time ANY vehicle leaks at that weep hole, it's because the seal in the water pump has gone bad. All water pumps have this same weep hole in the same position to let you know the seal is bad. Makes no difference if it has a penny over the hole or not, replace the water pump and it won't "p" on you any more.

Sounds like you have one or both of the belts off by a tooth. Did u use cam locks to hold the camshafts in place. If it is a zero tolerance engine you may have messed a few things up.

The problem is most likely your cars multi function switch. That is the switch that controls your blinkers, dimmer, and everything else. If you change the switch that should solve your problem.

There are no acceptable safety reasons to remove a head rest in a car as they are designed to prevent death in an accident. If you are stopped at an inspection site you will be charged for this offence. Anyway if you still want to remove it then there should be small buttons at the base on the top of the seat near the rods . press these buttons while lifting out the head rest

Either the engine oil pump is worn, or the engine oil filter is clogged.
This happened on my 1997 Cadillac Deville. After changing the oil and filter, and putting the proper viscosity oil in, the problem immediately ceased.

Good luck on this one.
