Default coolant leak. 93 ssei

I have a 93 ssei coolant is leaking bad from underneath the car waterpump side of motor.I bought the car about 1 year ago. The person I bought it from said he replaced a plastic pipe that the coolant ran through. could this be the problem again or could it be the waterpump. the fluid runs out almost as fast as I pour it in. thanks

can you use a buddy, and have him pour coolant in, and you watch to see where it comes out? prolly as easy as fixing a hose

Sounds like the nuclear reactor is overloading and the coolant is being forced out. Quick! RUN FROM THE CAR AS FAST AS POSSIBLE!!! lol nevermind that. Check the water pump, that one plastic pipe thing, and the metal pipe that is next to it for leaks.
