So got home tonight and smoking was coming out from under my hood poped the hood could smell coolant checked hoses they all ok noticed coolant on the belt side of the motor under closer look noticed it was puddleing on the motor next the water pump check the elbow that runs into the motor it is not leaking so my question is the water pump bad or did the gasket bust the car did not over heat anyway to tell the differnece
There are 2 elbows, check both. Also check the heater hoses. Clean up the area real good and then watch for leaking. Coolant can leak from one place and travel to another, so be sure to use your hand to check under areas.
