The water pump is behind the plastic cover at the front of your engine BE CAREFUL the water pump is driven by the camshaft timing belt (that should be changed at the same time every 100,000klms/60,000miles)this is a complicated procedure and if your not very handy with the spanners take it to a pro

Porsche 944 leaking water into passenger side floor

You have a cracked condensation pan on your AC or a bad hose (could be cracked or clogged). You'll need to remove the dash to investigate which it is.

Water pump

All three of these engines a timing belt driven which means the water pump is also timing belt driven. The water pump is located behind the timing belt covers on the front of all three engines. The timing belt has to be removed in order to service the water pump. Yes coolant can leak out the pump when it is bad.

2001 996 turbo, slight coolant leak from the front of the motor,

to save money go rent a radiator pressure tester pump up the system to 12-15 lbs then take a light and search for a coolant leak check hose connections, water pump, radiator itself. if you are not comfortable looking for the leak call a buddy to help. you will also be able to locate the leak by looking all over the motor for a little yellow river that heads to the ground

Im leaking radiator fluid pretty badly and it leaks when i drive and but leaks all over the ground when it sits and its not the hoses and i just resealed the thermostate housing and now its leaking agian i...

I would look at the water pump. It either that or your radiator draped out. Park it after it hot and put a box under the belt area between belt and motor and under the radiator. That should help narrow it down a bit. Hope this helps

How can you tell if your water pump is bad. Boxster running hot. Steam coming out of side vents. I waited and allowed engine to cool. Without starting it, refilled with antifreeze and antifreeze is leaking...

It could be either hose or the pump. Introduce no more antifreeze to this car until you have found your leak as you are just wasting your money.

You are going to have to visually inspect it for the leak. Typically if it is a pump, the pulley and the underside of the pump will be wet.

Water not circulaing through radiator, suspect thermostat, bought one don't know where thermostat is located LoL help please

If water is not circulating through the radiator, the problem is more likely the water pump. Look and see if the water pump has any coolant leaking from it's vent or weep hole. If so, then the water pump is bad. As for the thermostat, follow the upper radiator hose to where it hooks on the engine. The thermostat should be located inside the housing that the hose hooks onto. Hope this helped and best wishes.
