1. Put some newspapers underneath the car.

2. Put any thing such as a cardboard in the front of the radiator.

3. Start the car for at least 20 minutes wait it is building up the pressure, you will find the leaking area, then see which part leaking and fix it.

1990 couger has a few problems at the moment im tring.to.get fixed the importain one at the moment is a water leak from the passanger side of the water pump at least thats where it looks like it comming...


If the pump leaks when it is running it indicates a failed water pump seal. Ther is a drain hole in the housing that allows water to run out before it damages the bearing. Check for corrosion holes in the pump body under the impellor. It is not good policy to buy cheap after market pumps as they have an inferior casting that needs a lot of anti corrosion additive in the water to last .

Looks like a leak at the bottom of engine


It is likely the water pump is leaking and the coolant is running back under the engine. Put you finger under the bottom of the water pump near the front where the shaft comes out, if it comes back wet with coolant the pump is leaking.

Water pump leaks


If your water pump is leaking, that is the first sign of a bad water pump. This means that you will have to replace the water pump.

If it's water pump, would be leaking from back of water pump pulley, also check both upper and lower coolant hoses that go to water pump, could also be water pump gasket.

Water pump replacement-putting it back in and setting the timing.


  1. Step 1 Park your car overnight and put a large white piece of paper underneith your car. In the morning check the paper. If the paper is wet with liquid, you could have a water pump leak.
  2. Step 2 If the paper has green (in most cases) fluid on it, there is a good chance your vehicle is leaking coolant (sometimes refered to as "water"). In many cases, when you are leaking coolant it could be coming from the water pump.
  3. Step 3 Turn the engine off and open the hood.
  4. Step 4 Locate the water pump pulley. The pulley is the round part that the belt is attached to. To find it, look for the belts. You will see more than one pulley. Your car will have an alternator with a pulley and perhaps an air conditionermag-glass_10x10.gif, power steering and smog pump pulleys. If you are unsure, ask your mechanic to point out the water pump pulley.
  5. Step 5 Grab opposite ends of the round pulley and check for "play" (looseness): Try to rock it back and forth. There should be no give. If there is, the bearings are going and it's time to replace the water pump. By the time you can feel play in the water pump pulley, you may also be able to hear the bad bearing when the engine is running - there may be a low-pitched grinding noise coming from the water pump pulley.
  6. Step 6 Visually check the water pump (it's located behind the pulley) for signs of a coolant leak. If the water pump gasket is leaking, it must be replaced. This is a good time to get a new water pump, too, unless it was just recently replaced
