it was 2 leaks.

leaking out of the front of the WP. then out of the back of my intake manifold gasket (oil too).

Getting a new thermostat put on and replacing the belts.

Default Halp! Female in distress.

I'm posting as my hubby because he is out of town. The 95 Bonne SE started leaking coolant when he started to the airport. There was a large puddle in the driveway, so I pulled it in the garage. (He took another car.) It dripped some more after I turned it off. I can tell where the puddle is, but not where it is coming from. On the photo above, it is about where the red bar in the rear of the engine is, and about 1/3 over from the passenger side. It looks like there is a lot of squishy stuff down there that it could be, but I don't know what anything is-- except spark plugs, and things like that. Do you guys have any ideas?
Thanks,
Mary

Could be any number of things but 3800s periodically eat water pumps. Good news is that GM made them really easy to change and easier than some of the heater hoses.

Thank you! I realized after it was too late that I posted this in the wrong place. Sorry.
