Sounds like it is coming from the water pump bearing seal. Unfortunatly you should replace the water pump before the bearing fails and throws the pulley into the radiator (or the car gets too hot).

I have a leak of antifreeze under the car and am thinking it might be the water pump leaking. Where is the water pump located on a 2001 chevy cavalier Z24?

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.

Water pump is leaking

If its leaking from a mount bolt then your gasket went bad.....get a new gasket and some permatex

However if it looks like it is leaking from the pully its self then it is leaking from the weap hole, when this happens it is because the seal arround the berrings has gone bad. You have to get a new water pump
