I replaced my waterpump 2.5 years ago and I think it maybe leaking again... Is it the waterpump that only leaks when your car is running? Because something leaks, it looks like it comes from the passenger side right under the drive belts.

There are numerous posts on the fact that the coolant hoses in this area are prone to leaking, rather than the pump.

sounds like your upper hose might be gone. You should also check the sealer on the housing that attaches the hose to your engine, it's right over your alternator. hope it's not the waterpump and good luck

So its leaking down the back passenger side only when the engine is warm and it's turned off. Please tell me its not the head gasket..... :dead:
My leak happens when my car is on, so its a different coolant leak, thanks for the link though...

You still need to check the hoses I referenced you too. Just because the one member thinks it only leaks when the engine is off, doesn't mean it's not leaking when the engine is running. He just possibly didn't see it as much because there is greater pressure in the system just after you turn the engine off.
