Sounds like you better start looking for head studs and gaskets. Get that looked at, and soon.

Your timing cover may have a hole in it from cavitation.

Does sound like you need a new front cover. You can pull the water pump off and sometimes see the tiny holes through the cover that the cavitation caused. As far as the heads, 6.4's seldom have head gasket issues,at least that I've seen come in the shop. I feel for ya man

Head gasket issues are more common on the 6.4 then most ppl think. But sounds like cavitation
