It may be a frost plug leaking by the starter motor.or a head gasket above the starter.it may need to be pressure tested(cooling system) to find the location of the leak if its not a bad(large)leak.it could also be a heater hose leak and running down to that location.

Antifreeze leak


Sounds like it might be a leaking water pump behind the pulley.

Antifreeze leaking onto belts don't know where it is coming from. Is it the water pump or the water outlet? changed the hoses


What you need to do is pressurize the cooling system, then you should be able to see where the leak is coming from.....There is a tool that does this pressure test.

My ciera is leaking water from behind the belts, but it is not the by the water pump. the hoses are not leaking either. Any idea what else it may be?


If it is behind the belts, it is most likely the water pump. Possibly its leaking then travels down away from where the water pump would be. Open it up and see if its leaking.

Leaking antifreeze


Yes I think this is the obvious one here. It could also be a core plug weeping, but unlikely unless you've been using water instead of coolant.

Get a couple of quotes for waterpump AND timing belt replacement - as the belt usually has to come off anyway.

Leaking from water pump and timing belt is slasded


If you are losing antifreeze out of the water pump, then that is a sympton telling you it's time to replace the water pump. When you say the timing belt is slashed up, do you mean the serpentine belt that runs the power steering pump, ac pump, alternator, and water pump or have you actually torn the engine apart enough to see the timing belt?

If you in fact mean the serpentine belt, chances are it's torn up because either antifreeze got on the belt making it slick enough to get off track and when they get off track, they can get slashed up pretty quick.

Good Luck

Antifreeze leaking just underneath the pulley


Your water pump is defective and needs replacing if you see it leaking at the water pump pulley. The bearing has gone bad.

Leaking engine coolant from bottom of engine front passenger side


Probably a water pump seal unfortunately. Pressurize the system, with the engine off, use a mirror to look under the water pump pulley to see if any fluid is dripping from the water pump seal weep hole.
If it is, change the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.

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.

Problem with my 2000 ford taurus water pump.


I just had that same problem with the antifreeze leaking and I thought it was my water pump but I pulled the antifreeze tank off and it was cracked all along the bottom and that was causing the antifreeze to leak out real bad so I went to a nearby junkyard and found a new tank and replaced the cracked one and now it works just fine with no leaks. I hope this works for you liked it worked for me.

Overheating


Make sure you don't have a bad head-gasket. Check for excessive pressure in radiator or hoses. Check under oil cap for creamy/milk like residue or actual antifreeze in oil or the opposite oil in antifreeze. Let me know what you find. Good Luck
