Post a photo of the leak.
back of engine can be.
1: hose crack
2; hose fitting crack
3; bad head gasket.
4:cracked head or block.
5? heater hose or valve?
6: there are many water hose on engines. the one that leaks sure is bad.
it's a hands on thing, not posting a photo , just makes web help
near impossible. (we guess,)

That is the timing cover gasket. The coolant goes through the timing cover into the block and there is a gasket between the two, and it is a common problem on the taurus.

SOURCE: water leaking from back of engine compartment

More likely the heater hose. Most run back behind the glove box. It could also be a leak in the heater core- normally that would fog the windshield on the inside.

It sure sounds like the heater core, especially if you have water leaking inside the cabin. The two heater hoses only go from the engine to the firewall, and do not go into or through the firewall. They connect to the heater core right at the firewall.
Check carefully around the back side of the engine and the heater hoses, though. If a freeze plug is leaking, water will be dripping off the bottom of the engine. If it is leaking before the firewall, that would not be the heater core.

Water leaking onto passenger side floorboard,soaking the carpet

Your heater core has developed a leak - the wetness on the passenger side carpet is engine coolant
from a heater core leak, or a leak in one of the two hoses connected to the back of the heater core.
Your strategy: disassemble dash down to heater core, determine whether you'll need a new heater
core or new hose (or new hose clamp), then replace the offending part.

I have a 1997 cavalier and this morning i looked under my car and there is a water leak under the passenger side of the engine, any idea? where is the water pump located?

The water pump is on the passenger side of the engine below the tensioner. Also look for coolant leaks from the head gasket.
