Could be a freeze plug if it is leaking on the sides. If it is in the front most likely it is your water pump. There is a weep hole in the back bottom that will leak as seals get hard or wore out. If you are ever having a hard time finding leaks buy a bottle of baby power and mist it over the motor. It will show the leak quickly.

I will like to know if the antifreeze leak could be from the water pump if the leak comes from the bottom of the car and not from the radiator


ALL antifreeze leaks will be seen coming from the bottom of the car. Yes, it COULD becoming from the water pump. But then again, it could be coming from an intake manifold gasket, a heater hose, a throttle-body heater hose, a freeze plug, a timing cover, a heater control valve, etc..
To find out where it is leaking from, you must follow the antifreeze trail UP from where you see it leaking. Antifreeze leaks ALLWAYS travel downhill. Sometimes they can be deceiving also. I have seen intake manifold leaks at the front of the engine run all the way to the back of the engine and make it look like a rear freeze plug is leaking. Again, you must follow the trail to find the actual source.

check for a wet tailpipe,which might indicate a leak between water jacket & combustion chamber.i.e.headgasket.check heater hose isn't leaking onto exhaust manifold,'cooking' the anti-freeze as it leaks.

i would try to flush the cooling system completely
if I had to guess someone put stop leak in it when the freeze plug started leaking
also check the oil to make sure there is no water in the oil

Antifreeze wont stay in car leaking for bottom


You need to look closely at the hose connections, freeze plugs, and the water pump. Water pumps are designed so that when the shaft bearing wears out, they leak from a small hole under the pulley shaft. Sometimes they will only leak while the engine is running. Freeze plugs can rust through causing a leak usually from the side of the engine. Hoses can leak from anywhere. You'll probably have to get under the engine to narrow down the possibilities. You may also want to rent a tool to pressurize the cooling system. That might help you to see where the leak is coming from. If you've never changed a water pump or a freeze plug before, you might be better off taking it to a professional. If it's just a hose, you could probably do that yourself. I hope this was helpful. Thanks.

Check out your freeze plugs. They are thin metal cups that press fit into the side of the block. Use a mirror and a light to inspect while the engine is running.
