Good possibility the water pump but im not sure where you are seeing the antifreeze could also be hose but a pressure test is good for telling exactly where. you can run it until it is at operating temp and shut it off and try to pin point this leak.

Belt slipped off leaked antifreeze can i replace the belt and still be able to drive it


if there was a coolant leak then the squeak is more than likely the water pump hence the leak, a belt coming off would'nt cause a coolant leak on its own ,i'd get the water pump checked

Put antifreeze in and it leaks drivers side under car behind water pump are there water hoses there


On the water pump there is a weep hole when the pump fails they tend to leak out of the weep holes. Its also possible the water pump seal failed too. On this car the timing belt drives the water pump. If you drive on it and the pump locks up. You will be replacing the motor or the whole top end of the engine due to bent valves. Its time to replace the water pump and timing belt. Then you will be good to go again. So do not drive it for the sake of saving your engine. I'd tow it in to the shop or replace the belt and pump yourself.

The water pump is located inside the timing cover, the timing belt drives the water pump, replace timing belt also when doing water pump, will save you labor down the road. Hope this was helpful for you.

'94 Mazda MX-6 leaking antifreeze from passanger side engine


Don't drive while it is over heating, cast aluminum doesn't like heat and will warp. Should take it to a repair shop if your not sure what is wrong with your vehicle. Your problem sound like the water pump is shot you may have all ready caused major damage if you have drove your vehicle for a while.

Serpentine belt broke and i think the water pump is bad


The battery light and brake light are on because the belt isn't turning the alternator. The house with columns means it is low on antifreeze. You need to put the belt back on an check for antifreeze leaks. I would say you waterpump likely locked up and roasted the belt and that is where the antifreeze is leaking also.
