    If the car is turned off and its sitting it would prob. run out in a full 3 or 4 days. When i got underneath the car the leak looks like its coming from the back of the engine, or behind the water not real sure where the leak is coming from, its behind something because you cant see a hole or anything you just can see a dripping leak and there a million thing on this car.

    I have the same problem with antifreeze leaking on my 2000 Ford Tourus. Its a real slow drip comming off the bottom of the timing chain cover. Can't see where its comming from to reach that point.

You should try checking all of the hoses, also how long does it take for it to run out?

Coolant and oil leak

have a compression test done as the bubbles suggest a blown head gasket or cracks. That will account for the overheating. The oil leak may be from the head gasket or cracks.

Having over heating problems with my 2000 taurus it does it most with def. or air cond. on full blast did find small leak at water pump where it bolts to block. replaced both cooling fansand,the thermostat...

No, the sending unit is working right.
Ideas? Yes, I think the problem is the water pump. Don't drive it overheated till you get a new water pump or have it inspected. You say it's a small leak where it bolts to block, but maybe it's the "weep hole" on bottom of pump leaking, meaning the internal seals on the pump have failed. If so, it won't be a small leak, it will leak all the time engine is running. A lot may be swept away by air, or by evaporating. Check it out. That's a likely cause of overheating.

Water Pump leaking Water.

You should replace the Water Pump. I recommend you pick up the Haynes Repair manual on your vehicle at the same Auto Parts store you pick up the part at. This will show you any short cuts that youo might take to replace the pump.

My 2002 ford taurus leaks anti freeze and was told it was head gaskett or timing gaskett. The oil is fine and the leak is not all the time.

More than likely (and hopefully) it is the timing chain cover gasket. Common problem on Tauruses with the Vulcan V-6. Had the same problem. Replaced gasket and leak stopped. Not cheap if taken to a mechanic, but is doable if you have some experience and the equipment.

Problem with my 2000 ford taurus water pump.

I just had that same problem with the antifreeze leaking and I thought it was my water pump but I pulled the antifreeze tank off and it was cracked all along the bottom and that was causing the antifreeze to leak out real bad so I went to a nearby junkyard and found a new tank and replaced the cracked one and now it works just fine with no leaks. I hope this works for you liked it worked for me.
