I believed my water pump is leaking I checked my hoses and didn't see any problems with it, I did see some anti freeze siting below the thermostat on the engine just above the water pump but around the thermostat is dry. I have a v-6, 3.3, two wheel drive.

ok first, the fan it wont stop running cause is trying to cool the engine down, due to the leak, is it leaking from the warter pump? if the water pump is the problem you need a special tool to remove the water pump ant to put the new one in place, and that will fix your problem but first the leak, thats causing all the problem. Thanks
The back side glass seal is leaking or wheel well seam leaking take the tire out drill a hole 3/8 or so
in the bottom so it drains when it rains or check it whith a warter hose
to find out where the warter is comming from
You need to isolated the location of the coolant leak. Check the radiator, hoses, and water pump for leaks. The water pump should have a vent or "weep" hole. If there is any coolant leaking from the hole, the water pump is defective. When checking the hoses, look for cracks or obvious signs of deterioration. Pay particular attention to areas where the hose clamps are located when looking for leaks. Overheating and coolant loss can also be caused by a faulty thermostat. The thing is that you need to find out where the problem is before it can be addressed properly. Hope this helped and best wishes.
look into the coolant recovery bottle with engine running and make sure hose i end is submerged. If you see bubbles, you have a head gasket leaking. How does the car run on start up?? a little rough at first?
It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.
First of all ensure that your car is leaking coolant fluid, and what is dripping is not just water condensation from the air conditioner. If you have a coolant liquid leak, it can be from one of the ducts leading to radiator , from water pump or radiator itself. Check liquid levels, and if you have a leak have the car inspected by a qualified mechanic. A broken water pump, for example, can cause your motor to blow in few miles.
