It is possible that the leaking part is your water pump. Water pumps tend to leak when they fail as an indication that they are bad. I would recommend having your water pump inspected by a qualified professional to determine if it is functioning properly. Consider YourMechanic as inspection such as this can be performed at your home or office.
