Whichever side of the motor you see the drive belts on.

Ford puts theirs on the passenger side but I see gm stuff on the drivers side too.

pop the hood and look for the drive belts. It is either drivin by one of these belts OR off the timing belt under the timing belt cover.

There is a weep hole at the bottom of the water pumps to let you know the pump is worn and needs replaced.

After engine has cooled, put water in the radiator if you can, not the overflow bottle.
Antifreeze raining down - sounds like a water pump leak, or other SERIOUS leak, in a rubber hose, etc. You can ruin the engine if it overheats! Guage will not work with no water in the engine. Have reliable mechanic check it ASAP

The car was leaking antifreeze and started smoking in 40 degree weather. I filled it and it stopped leaking, but the engine is still overheating. If its the water pump, how can I replace it on a 1992 chevy...


Is the antifreeze leaking out of a small hole on the water pump housing just behind the pulley?
You need to know exactly where the leak is coming from. If the pump is not leaking then there is another location.
Generally pumps either work or leak. They do not slow down and overheat the engine.
Where did the smoke come from? Under the hood or out the exhaust pipe? If you blew a head gasket and the exhaust was blowing steam that would cause overheating. The original leak under the engine would cause overheating that then will cause other problems like blown head gaskets.
Did you use stop leak or some quick fix? what did you do to stop the original leak?

I am leaking antifreeze externally on my 97 chevy lumina 3.1, I have checked everything on top for leaks, including hoses and water pump, I have replaced the temperature sending unit. I just have no idea...


More than likely a freeze plug.Get the vehicle running and when the cooling fans come on(with ac and defrost off) turn motor off and look for leak under vehicle,this will help you locate the leak a lot better.

Leaking fluid in my 1999 Chevy Malibu


When they changed the water pump and the leak stopped then the water pump was bad. If they changed the water pump and was still leaking then then it was not the water pump. 
Where is the fluid leaking from, if there is white smoke coming from the tail pipe then good chance is that the head gasket is gone and pull the dip stick out to see if there is antifreeze mixxing with the engine oil.
It's common that the 3.4 V6 has intake manifold gasket go bad and leak. Check all the heater hose first, and try to find out where the leak is coming from.
Good luck and keep me posted, glad to help you as much as i can.

Check to see if the lower Intake gaskets are leaking. Check all four corners, antifreeze might be leaking from the intake down onto the transmission. This is a common problem, the intake gaskets are plastic.
