Default well got to fix the first thing on the 94 SSEi

seems i have a coolant leak on the car i just bought it is in the water pump area so i'm hoping that is it it isd a pretty good size leak and only leaks if it is running but time to break out the jack stands and take a look if it is then the thermostat is getting done as well while the system is drained

Not likely to be the thermostat. Most likely on that end of the motor is the coolant bypass fitting in the LIM (stock is plastic, OEM replacement is metal) or the water pump.

Hop out from under and look down in from above. If you look directly under the supercharger pulley you will see the waterpump. Follow the hose that comes off the top of the water pump and heads into the LIM (lower intake manifold). Most likely this is your leak. Not the hose, but the plastic fitting that connects the hose to the lower intake. They are known to corrode and crack.

The parts is around $10-$15 dollars and is replaced with a metal piece.
