If the fluid is a bright green or yellow colour, it is coolant fluid. Check the water pump, there should be a seal leak drain hole under it, look for signs of a leak. If there is a green/yellow track leading from below the water pump. you need to have the water pump replaced. A leak from the engine would be dark brown to black an a transmission leak would be red tp very dark red. Coolant would tend to dry up while oils spills do not. The water pump is located on the side of the engine where the belts are. I do not know if your car is left or right hand drive.

Water leaking under car

You sure it isn't the condensate from the Air conditioner?
You should have antifreeze in the radiator,not just water.
If this is clear water,it's probably condensate and no problem.
BTW,if you weakened your antifreeze solution by adding water to it,you might want to check if the freeze point is still around 30-40 below zero Fahrenheit. don-ohio (:^)

There could be many reasons why the coolant leaks, you may have a bad waterpump or maybe its a hose leaking but its hard to say without looking at it. the correct way would be to pressurize the cooling system to locate the leak or if it runs out with pressure then you would need to try and see where the flow is coming from. it sounds like maybe a pipe rusted and is now leaking or again maybe just a hose.good day.

Hello: The waterpump is on the passenger side of engine. Either the heater hoses are leaking or the waterpmp shaft seals or the radiator hose that attaches to the waterpump. The waterpump is located about in the center, its pulley does not have groves and the pulley is held on the waterpump with 4 10mm bolts.
