If you have to ask that.. you better be telling us WHY you think it's bad!

And BTW.. it depends on the Engine.. usually on the front of it, but ya
never know, do ya!

I hope you're not in IT support.. if you are you're the guy who gripes
about the client coming to you wanting you to install the fix.. but not
telling you why or what the symptoms are.

Now that wasnt so hard, was it! If you had just included that in your
first post, there wouldnt have been a smart-ass answer.

That bottom radiator hose attaches directly to the water pump assy. Note
the continuous metal casting up to and behind the top large center pulley
with the four bolts in the center. Assuming you have electric fan.

A bad water pump seal is indicated where the coolant drip down onto the
crankshaft area from behind that pulley.. and what you indicate is close
enough.

Dont worry about not seein gthe water recirculate... When the engine is
OFF, the coolant in the rad should be within 3 inches or so of the cap...
if not it will overheat.

In a good, non-leaking system, the coolant should be right at the cap..
that's the purpose of the coolant reservoir.. it expnds coolant and air
into bottle, then as engine cools it pulls coolant back into rad.

If you replace the pump yourself be sure to have proper tools.. and that
includes a good knife-type scraper to remove old gasket and sealer.
