Default Water Leak around the water pump!

I've noticed since it has been colder here in MS that radiator fluid was leaking somewhere. I finally found it leaking around the water pump area, but I haven't pin pointed it yet. Anyone had this problem?

How long do I have before total failure? It seems to do ok during normal in city driving. How easy is it to replace myself?

Jseabert'* is on the way south, too. Easiest access is through the right front fender well. Pull the tire and work through there.

Alright guys, I can't get one of the bolts off the water pump. There is a pulley that the engine mount is blocking and I can't get the bolt out without removing the pulley and I can't sem to remove the pulley without removing the motor mount. Any suggestions?

Man, I don't see what you're talking about, but I'm series1. I looked at the book, and it doesn't talk about pulling any pulleys from 92-99 at all, except the water pump pulley. Which pulley are you talking about?

Torque axis mount should be for a 95 only. Not previous or after.
