Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi Justin, Just seen the other part of your question and suggest you have a defective water pump the alternative being a cracked cylinder head or block. I think if you get the engine warmed up to operating temperature and observe the water pump you'll see the leakage. DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS ANYWHERE NEAR A HOT OR RUNNING ENGINE! Let me know if my guess is correct...Please. Regards John

i think its going to be the head gasket duto the way its leaking coolant. one of the water jackets maybe i would have it checked to be sure but it sounds like head gasket

when you say left side are we talking passanger side or drivers side if drivers side which is my guess most likely your waterpump seal is leaking

First determine where coolant loss comes from. I would not continue driving, till that step is isolated, or further damage will be done
