Presume this is a non-turbo engine. Remove engine timing belt, drain coolant, remove and replace the water pump mounted on the front left of the engine, and re-assemble. Remember to follow correct procedure to reset the timing belt tensioner, and this would be a dandy time to replace the timing belt also. Refill with coolant, run until thermostat opens

Removed thermostat due to over heating, water was not circulating in radiator. but now it is leaking by the water pump


if leaking under water pump its a weep hole or bearing to water pump (pump gone bad) if leaking above where thermostat was gasket leak but if overheating was original problem more than likely water pump was and is your problem

What happens when your water pump goes out?


under pump there's a weep hole, located in center of pump below the shaft that the pulley is attached, if coolant is coming out of that hole, pump is bad. otherwise, gaskets between pump / engine are leaking.

Losing water under water pump


It appears that the seal on the shaft of the water pump has failed and is leaking out of the drain hole that is built into the pump. The omly way to fix the leak is to replace the water pump as a complete assembly.

I have been putting alot of coolant in my radiator I dont think its a hose because it seems to be coming from the middle to bottom part of the car could this be a water pump problem?


The water pump is in the center of the engine. It usually has a small hole in the casting on the snout. If the seal went bad water usually runs out of the small hole and down the center of the front of engine. With the engine OFF, put your hand under the pump, and feel the snout to see if water winds up on your hand. If possible use a flashlight and check for a leak all around the pump, and bolts that hold it in. In a rare case the pump gasket could be leaking. If the pump appears to be dry, check the small hose that goes from the center of the pump to the block.

Leaking anti freeze in the right under the hood near right front tire


it could be the water pump if the front of the engine is on that side. or heater hoses. with the engine cold, fill the system full. use straight water so you won't waste anti freeze. run the car until it gets hot. the system will pressurize. inspect the suspected area. the leak should be apparent. if the leak appears to be running from the engine block, it's most likely the pump.
