Coolant leaks around water pump area ,does,nt over heat.

Your water pump has a weep hole that indicated it is starting to go bad. Look at the lower part of the water pump while engine is running just below and behind where is says (THREADED SHAFT) when engine is fully warmed up if water pump is going out there should be antifreeze in this area leaking down onto the crankshaft pulley. In RED is where to look for antifreeze.

Leaking antifreeze by crankshaft

First check for antifreeze in your oil. If you have antifreeze in your oil you have a blown head gasket. Ifnot you probably have a bad water pump. The pump is above the crank in the front of the engine. The water pump is the common leak as long as the hoses are good. Check carefully for a antifreeze trail. Then follw it to the source. The easiest way to do this is to pressurize the system. You may have to take it to a shop for this, but it will show the leak source the fastest.

I am not sure if it the water pump, but we are losing water and there does not seem to be any leak in the coolant reservoir.

A water pump would not likely cause loss of water,mainly overheating problems.First fill the radiator full and the overflow full,you can use water to do this,it is not necessary to waste antifreeze.You do not need a 100% mix of antifreeze.During winter where it gets below freezing,you really only need about 70% antifreeze to prevent freeze.Maybe a little more if you are 1 or 2 states from Canada.If you open the hood and let the car run,watch the tubes and the radiator and the hoses,follow anything hooked up to the radiator.If you end up getting a big leak or puddle,dilute it down with tons of water.Birds for some reason like the taste of antifreeze however it kills them.Good luck!

Antifreeze leak comimg from where antifreeze enters engine

The antifreeze enters the engine through the water pump. If it's not a hose, the water pump is leaking. Have a mechanic pressure test the system.

Antifreeze leak at lower raditor housing? antifreeze dripping down oilpan by dipstick tube and aircondition compressor only when hot.

you may have a water pump that is starting to fail. Look for the water pump that's driven by the fan belt. look at the housing of the water pump there is a relief hole that they drill in the casting and when the pump begins to fail it will drip out this hole. If that's where your leak is, it's time to change the pump.

Leaking antifreeze

could quite possibly be the water pump. There is a weep hole under the shaft, when the bearings go, the antifreeze leaks out at that point. Try checking w/ motor off using a small mirror to get a look under the water pump. If u see corrosion, or it's wet, get a new pump installed. Let me know what u find. good luck countrycurt0
