Exclamation 1995 SSEi SC belt came off

I got back from a drive yesterday and I had just parked and I started hearing a faint squealing, checked it out and the SC belt was off and back behind the WP pulley. I noticed the WP and tensioner pulleys were somewhat wet, can't tell if it is oil or coolant. Whatever it is it seems to be coming from the water pump or lower. WP is new, so I don't think that is it. Can I drive very far with no WP to get to my garage to work on it?

Thanks!

I wouldn't advise it. Without the water pump, you are not moving coolant through the engine. Even in 30F temps, that engine will heat up quick!

If the drive is short, your OK, but watch the temp real close. If it starts going up past 180 then pull over and let it cool. If you push it much past the low 200s you risk damaging the engine.

Thanks guys, is there a common leak down there? I don't really see any sling or puddles. Oil cooler line or something?

There is a coolant elbow right above the water pump. These can crack or the O rings go out.
