Most water pumps have weep holes underneath that direct leaking water downward.
Sounds like you need to replace the water pump and of course get a new gasket. don-ohio

What is halfway between Akron Ohio and Seveirville Tn.?

It's about 510 miles between Akron and Sevierville, so the halfway point would be close to Cincinnati, Ohio. The actual halfway point would be 20 miles south of Cincinnati.The closest small town at that point (south of Cincinnati) would be Walton, Ohio on I-71.

In June my radiatior blew when I was in akron ohio and I had to get it towed back to canton where I live my car won't start at all and my battery is mostly dead is I just need some info on what could...

In general terms, you may have blown a head gasket when it overheated. If the engine cranks but won't start you may not have enough compression because of the head gasket.
A mechanic would check the compression with a gauge.

I live in Ohio and my 1998 Mercury Villager wont pass E-Check . They said it is the pressure control solenoid . I need to know where the pressure control solenoid is located and where I can buy one .

The transmission pressure control solenoid? On the valve body inside the transmission pan. VB will need to be removed and all solenoids replaced ( the come as a set wired together). Will need some skill and experience to do this job successfully.

Yes I have a 1998 GMC Sierra K1500 5.7 4x4 It

I don't really think it matters what state you live in they both have the same kind of weather, i know because i have lived in both, your problem is most likely fuel related, chanses are its either a fuel filter or fuel pump problem, either filter is pluging up or the pump is weak. Best thing to do is chg. the filter and do a pressure test on the pump

NO! It is the Fuel Pump and Possibly the Fuel Pump Relay. Don't spend all that Money on repairs to Finance a Mechanics Snap On Tools Habit!

Timing belt replacement

From what you're describing here, the timing belt wasn't installed properly to it's timing marks from the start. You mentioned it ran rough when you got the car back. That immediately told me the timing marks were not correctly lined up. If the belt wasn't tensioned correctly, the belt will gradually start retarding itself to the point of it not running. You did mention that as well already too. In other words, the belt slowly got looser and looser until the valves were not opening/closing at the correct time and eventually the piston hit the valve due to the lack of the tension of the belt not being correct. I really fail to beleive that the tensioner went out "all of a sudden" especially right after the water pump was installed. The reason it is recommended that the timing belt be replaced at the time of the water pump is antifreeze/coolant will SLOWLY deteriorate the belt causing premature wear. This doesn't happen in a week either, this take a long time to happen. My professional opinion is the timing belt was incorrectly re-installed when the water pump was replaced. I've been in the auto repair business for a very long time (28 years) and I have seen this very thing happen when the customer tries to replace the timing belt or water pump themselves especially when there was a lack of experience.
