SOURCE: Oil leak above water pump

most prob both, get a new gasket for it and replace that should solve the problem, if not check around the part thats leaking and make sure there is no hair line cracks, but sounds like a bad job did, or it may just need to be tightend up

if leaking under water pump its a weep hole or bearing to water pump (pump gone bad) if leaking above where thermostat was gasket leak but if overheating was original problem more than likely water pump was and is your problem

1990 Cabrio water pump leaks on start

Any time ANY vehicle leaks at that weep hole, it's because the seal in the water pump has gone bad. All water pumps have this same weep hole in the same position to let you know the seal is bad. Makes no difference if it has a penny over the hole or not, replace the water pump and it won't "p" on you any more.

I have a water leak on my 1987 nissan sentra, it has a 1.3L E13 engine in it. i have found a nut/screw missing on the bottom of the water pump and we have found that this is where the water is escaping...

Are you sure this isn't a "weep hole"? Many water pumps have them, and they leak when the pump has gone bad. Plugging them won't help, and could cause engine failure.

Antifreeze leaking just underneath the pulley

Your water pump is defective and needs replacing if you see it leaking at the water pump pulley. The bearing has gone bad.

Water pump is leaking

If its leaking from a mount bolt then your gasket went bad.....get a new gasket and some permatex

However if it looks like it is leaking from the pully its self then it is leaking from the weap hole, when this happens it is because the seal arround the berrings has gone bad. You have to get a new water pump

Antfreeze leak not allowing belt to get traction where might the antifreeze be coming from and how can fix it

check all the hoses. next, check the water pump, should be behind the fan. If the bearings have gone bad in the water pump, it can sometimes leak coolant everywhere.
