Can the car not start if the waterpump is broken. Im leaking a light oil substance from my engine, right where the timing belt cover is.

The car will run if the water pump is broken, unless it's siezed and is preventing the belt from turning. But even then, usually the car will start but will snap the belt.

There is a weep hole in the bottom of the water pump. If it goes, you will leak coolant.
