4runner water leak under motor

I just bought it and I'm pretty sure I can tackle the problem if it's not too serious, I'm guessing it's the water pump failure and nothing else serious.
Anyone has any other suggestions? Much appreciated.

I am leaking coolant in the front not at the radiator but close too it. Is it the hose or the water pump?

Put a piece of cardboard under the car. Then look down at the cardboard from above the the area. You can see where the drops are in relation to the hose or water pump or other spot.
I do that for locating oil leaks.
Hope this helps.

Most likely the problem is an intermittent vacuum problem or sticking air blend door between the outside air and interior. Check all you vacuum lines for leaks and check the hot water control valve on the water line that runs from the engine to the firewall.

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

Should I change timing belt/water pump

Your 1997 Toyota with the 3.4 L V6 is an interference engine. This means if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. The belt must be replaced at 90,000 miles or 10 years under normal conditions and 60,000 under severe conditions. So, you need to have the belt replaced immediately as you are over the maximum of the belt's life. I would not drive this vehicle anywhere except to a trusted mechanic to have the belt replaced. The same belt that drives the cam also drives the water pump. In order to replace the water pump the cam belt must be removed. For that reason and the fact that the pump will not last 180,000 miles I highly recommend you have the water pump replaced at the same time as the cam belt. This will save you on labor cost later on when the pump would fail. Plus it might save more if the engine overheats. As you are going to replace the water pump this is a great time to drain and flush the cooling system and replace the thermostat which may or may not have been done in the past. You also will need to replace the spark plugs if that has never been done. Remember this is an INTERFERENCE engine. Keep driving the vehicle without replacing the belt and you are driving a time bomb that can explode at any time. Hope this is helpful to you.

Jetta TDI Coolant leak from behind tming belt.

hi from uk from the symptom/location you say water leak is coming from ? this is most likely to be the water pump that is leaking ? considering age/milage ? this is not uncommon however as the water pump is driven by cambelt this unfortunately means you will have to replace the cambelt and tensioner as well as the water pump it is policy never to use old belt/tensioner once disturbed for obvious reasons i'm sure you have heard stories of result of cambelt failure? and the serious damage caused to engine ? also if leak is serious? this will deteriate c/belt so advice you consider renewal asap cambeltkit +tensioner in uk casts approx under £45 and w/pump a little less you can obtain from most good motor factors/superstores avoid dealers this job is not too difficult diy with haynes or w/shop manual if you follow instructions and have tool kit hope this helps?

Power steering pump

if the leak isn't from the hoses or connectors under the car.  Clean the pump area with carb cleaner spray, then tie a small bit of white cloth around both hoses (tighten the clamps at the same time).  This will reveal the source of the leak.  If the hoses are OK.  It's most likely the front seal and requires a replacement pump.
