    1995 Isuzu Rodeo leaking at back of engine seems to drip from bell housing when engine off constant drip does not drip when running

    I have the same problem, and was able to get the leak stopped with some stop leak. I'm sure this only a temp solution, and would like to know what the permanent solution is.

    I have the same problem too. Just replaced the water pump and timing belt so no problem there... I cant pinpoint the leak, but It appears to be coming from the back of the engine, i find coolant dripping off of the back of the oil pan. 
    What is a good method to use to find the leak?

Normally engines have welsh plugs in the rear of the heads and block.

1996 Dodge Ram 1500 leaking coolant

Probably the water pump. You should see coolant coming from the vent hole on the pump--usually on the bottom.

2000 honda accord coolant leak drivers side back of engine

Sounds as if it's coming from the weep hole on the water pump. Water pumps will leak out of the intended weep hole when it's time for replacement and based on the mileage it's definitely time. The coolant will only leak when the engine is not running and will not leak much. Unless you have documentation proving the timing belt was changed at the scheduled interval I highly recommend you have that service performed as well along with a new idler pulley and belt tensioner. You are time and money ahead of yourself to have all of these parts replaced at the same time since the same amount of labor is involved. I recommend finding a reputable independent repair shop that specializes in Hondas and use only OEM parts. Be sure to specify OEM-only and clarify not OEM-comparible parts. Good luck.

I have coolant leaking out of the fan pulley. why?

If the coolant is coming out of the one that's more to the center of the engine, it's going to be your water pump, when water pumps go bad they will leak coolant out, water pumps have a little hole in back of the pulley, that when the seal goes bad it will leak coolant through there.

Anti freeze/coolant leasking from the front lower part of the engine, is this the end of my motor???? Its 2000 LHS w/3.5 ltr. V6, thanks.

It sounds from what i can make out that it's leaking from your water pump and will need to be replaced if you mean the engine of the engine where the serpentine belt is. Before you go replacing the water pump, inspect the hose clamps first to ensure that you cover all bases. Good luck and keep me posted, and don't add any radiator stop leak. They just clog up the coolant jackets and restrict the flow of coolant.

2000 Xterra intermentantly overheats (temp gauge goes up) no leak appears present. Coolant level appears correct. Heater will blow cool air, then start blowing hot air. Temp will then come back to normal....

sounds more like the thermostat may be failing. generally a water pump starts leaking out of the "weep" hole in the casting before it quits. just look at the front of the water pump for a greenish streak or an obvious leak.
if you also suspect you heater core may be getting plugged now would be a good time to back flush it to get rid of some of the gunk.

2000 GMC Sierra leaking coolant

The coolant is more than likely leaking from the water pump "weep" hole. If you were to remove the water pump pulley you would be able to see the coolant track and weep hole.
The leak is an indicator that the seal and/or bearing is wearing out and the water pump needs to be replaced.
If you have some common tools, time and patience, you would be able to change the pump your self. It requires draining the cooling system, removing accessory brackets and hardware then removing and replacing the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.

Round machined hole in water pump housing leaking coolant

The hole is there to let you know the antifreeze seal in the pump is leaking. You need a new (or rebuilt ) pump installed immediately. Please change the belt and any tensioners while you are at it...
