Any 3.0 Timing Cover Oil Leak Advice?

My sister in laws '04 Escape 3.0 v6 has a timing cover oil leak and and another the water pump leak. I've heard the timing cover is a bear. She took it to a shop and they told her over a grand to fix it. I told her let me see whats involved and I'll do it.

H\Just wondering if any one had done this or something smiler.
