Question about Cars & Trucks
As long as the car wasn't cooked overheated to the point that it warped the heads . Have the radiator pressure tested see where your leak is first of all . If it's only coming from water pump then by all means change water pump . Also might want to find a new shop get another mechanic to check it out see what they have to say. Alot of back alley shops may seem cheaper but in the long run may bleed you for money on what you don't need .

Check the over flow reservoir. If it has been filling up athen that is probably what you've been replacing. It sounds like the thermostat. I would change that first and see if that fixes it. It is located at the frontof the engine. You will have to take off the the hose that comes from the bottom of the radiator to the front of the engine at the thermostat housing. Take the hose off at the housing. Remove the three bolts that hold the housing and reveal the thermostat. You can eae the thermostat out put the gasket back in and put everything back together to see if this solves your problem. If it does then goto autozone, advance, O'reilly's or one of your local car parts dealer and get a new thermostat and replace it.

Check all around the intake manifold gasket for evidence of antifreeze. Also check your oil for evidence of coolant. The Dexcool antifreeze used in GM engines can cause the intake gaskets to deteriorate causing coolant leakage. Very difficult to detect.
