On the block underneath the rocker cover is a hole that runs into the block - water leaks out of that hole. The water comes out of the block. Someone said it's called a weep hole.

Weep holes are usually located in parts that move either coolant,,fuel,,or oil,,,such as water pump,,,fuel pump,,,injection pump,, not blocks though unless its a drain or vent.
Are you getting water in oil?
Its possible that the hole rusted out from the inside,, this is caused by old or bad anti freeze.
How big is hole and is hole threaded?
We should be able to fix it I just need as much info to give you the best repair.
let me know
