Water pissing out under engine block instantly after water poured into the cooling system.

Has something came loose or is cause for real concern and a high-cost repair? In which car will sadly have to be scrapped.

The car has been losing water but not to this extent so something has clicked in a bad way. Recently temperature gauge has been going up, haven't driven very much.

But car essentially broke down today.

Appreciate any response.

    Is that an oil cooler built into the oil filter fitting? If so, it may be able to be replaced - it may have failed due to corrosion. It would help to know what vehicle etc and better pics...

Most likely blew the bearing in the water pump, it's a possibility. I'd check out your timing area and see if your timing chain / belt is loose and see if you have play with the gear on the water pump. To make sure it's not headgasket do a pressure test on each cylinder.
