Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero
Water pump may not be external , but is behind one of the pulleys, have you checked for loose or cracked hoses? do you hear any noise coming from that side? don't forget the heater hoses, and is the leak on the inside or out?

SOURCE: antifreeze leak near water pump
if your water pump has never been changed its a good bet that it is leaking. they are designed with a weep-hole that leaks to warn you that the bearing is going out. You can also verify if the bearing in the water pump is bad by grasping it at any two opposite sides and try and see if you can move it... even a little slight play indicates that it is going bad. if not the pump leaking the cleanup the engine, being careful not to spray water onto your alternator.. then get the car to normal operating temp and look for awhile at all hoses even the ones that go to the a/c heater system. another quick check is to look for crusty deposit buildups on any hoses or lines and then get the car hot and monitor. When i had a leak, it was from a small heater hose and it was a misty spray, i only found it when the engine was running.After you've corrected the problem and the engine is cool take radiator cap off and fill with 50/50 mix antifreeze. Also if you're going to change the pump out i would also change out the thermostat and replace the radiator cap if it looks a rusty and corroded. Can you rate this,,,,thanks!

SOURCE: where is the water pump
Hello: The waterpump is on the passenger side of engine. Either the heater hoses are leaking or the waterpmp shaft seals or the radiator hose that attaches to the waterpump. The waterpump is located about in the center, its pulley does not have groves and the pulley is held on the waterpump with 4 10mm bolts.
