leak Soo much. I don't know shit and need help
Unfortunately, based on your question you haven't given much detail. Is it oil, coolant, PS fluid, or what? Sounds like you need to seek qualified help. Most shops will give a free estimate. Some charge a fee but at least you will have some good information.
It's probably your water pump leaking, but then again a leak can be from a hose and just appear to be dripping from the front of the engine. Since you admit you don't know squat about cars, may as well take it to a shop for the repair work and let them find what is actually leaking.
Sounds like the water pump
My old Full size Bronco had a coolant leak like that turned out to be an intake manifold gasket in the left front corner coming up around one of the bolts. Obvious as heck when you finally got down to it.
First, there is no timing belt thingy on you truck. Most likely is the water pump, but could also be the intake manifold. Have someone that knows a little about vehicles help you with it.
