SOURCE: I have a 1998 Buick Lesabre that keeps losing antifreeze.

Buick 3.8's are notorious for intake manifold leaks. If you are sure you are not leaking externally (look under the alternator and on the top of the transmission), it could be an intake manifold leak. I've replaced mine...I didn't think it was too hard a job for an amateur.
It could also be a head gasket, but the intake leaks are much more common.

SOURCE: 1995 Buick LeSabre with a leaking water pump.

The water pump removal is a breeze on this vehicle. First remove your four bolts that hold the pully to the pump, then remove the serpentine belt. Next remove all bolts from water pump, now the fun part, pry the housing of the water pump off gently trying not to nick or gouge the engines placement for the housing. now all you have to do is make sure the housing is clean of all debris or old gasket material, you wouldnt want any of that gunk getting inside. nowplace your gasket properly on new water pump and place on housing. make sure the gasket fits nicely. reinstall pully to water pumy, reinstall your serpentine belt, place new antifreeze, I prefer the peak green full strength, make sure to mix correctly also. start engine let run for 5- 10 minutes and then let cool down and check levels. hope this helps.

Water leak left side of engine.

well, from what you told me, more then likely it's the thermostat housing gasket is shot, or the hose connected to the housing is loose.
