Coolant Leaking? 95 probe gt

ok coolant has been leaking from the front of the engine somewhere under the pulleys but I can't really see where exactly its coming from. It used to only leak when I would turn the car off, and even then it wouldnt be every time. Now it leaks when the car is on and off pretty much steady. I'm assuming its the water pump but I want to make sure there isn't much possiblility for anything else. Does anyone know exactly where the thermostat is? is it on that side?.

and is there any other possibilities for it leaking on that side?

Re: Coolant Leaking? 95 probe gt

If your standing in front of your car. The thermostat is on the the right hand side under the airfilter box. Where hose goes into the engine. But, since it's leaking where the pulleys are. It's one of three things, your hose is bad, clamps are loose, or your water pump is going out on you.

Water pump is cactus and a real bitch to replace it will get worse as time goes by but it should not fail in a hurry , just keep the coolant up to the correct level.
If you are not confident in doing DIY this is a BIG job you virtually have to remove the RHS (front) of the motor to get to the pump I would suggest to take it to a mechanic - The book time for labour from FORD is 4.5 to 5.5 hours to R & R the water pump.
BTW the space between the strut tower and the front of the motor (RHS) is only 4" to 6"

Yeah it's a pain in the butt. Do you know if your timming belt has ever been changed ? If not, you might as well change that to, since you'll have the water pump off. If in fact that is your problem.

Re: Coolant Leaking? 95 probe gt

yeah its looking to me like the water pump because its dripping down basically right below it onto that piece underneath that kind of looks like a metal or plastic pan. Its really coming out bad now. I had to take it off the road and drive the blazer instead. Ive had a few quotes as I dont think I want to do this myself. its looking to be around 850 to 1000 CAD for water pump, timing belt, tensioner kinda thing. friggin brutal. Ive had the car for two months. Oh yeah its starting to look like it needs a clutch too.
