Leaking water on the passenger side, and alarm keeps going off when is leaking

This is not good. The water is apparently shorting out some of your computer circuits. You need to find the source of the leak and get it repaired. (this cannot be done over the internet)

Radiator hose leak or water pump, how do i know

well you could ask someone who can't even see it; or you could take it to a muffler or oil change shop and ask them to put it up on a lift and take a look. from the underbelly view the source of the leak will be immediately apparent.

Oil leak in driver side rear wheel well for 2005 crown vic. drips down over top of tire and puddles under it.

Hi Don:
Have you checked to see if it's brake fluid?
Is it possible that the slave cylinder is leaking and the fluid is coming ot from the brakes? I can't think of any oil source in that area.

I have a 87 camry it looks like there is a oil leek starting.I checked the drain plug,oil filter thay all seem to be fine.can you tell me where the next common place to look would be,or should I just try...

Hello Mark.
The next most common thing I would look into here is the oil pressure sensor. They sometimes pull apart and leak at the seam.
Your 2 liter engine has it's sensor on the top left side of the cylinder head.
If the concentration of oil seems to be on the top side of the engine a valve cover gasket may have cracked.
A severe leak will often wash dirt off of an engine so look for an oil washed area. If nothing apparent it may be a good idea to give your engine a quick cleanup to help you find the leak as oil can travel a long way on an engine.
Hope you find the source OK.
Thank you for using FixYa!

It fills with smoke when idiling and there is oil under the engine

You have an oil leak. Apparently the oil is falling hitting the exhaust pipe and smoking. Start your search for the source at the front of the engine at the highest point where you see oil. Then look for a gasket or seal. There's your problem.

Oil leak on top of valve cover (apparently)

I think you have a bad gasket on your oil filler cap.
