The water pump housing leaks
Hello. This comes up often on this engine. If the housing for the water pump is leaking, then the water pump needs to be replaced. Most of the time the water pump housing does not leak on this engine, but instead the leak comes from the thermostat housing and leaks onto the water pump and its housing. I typically put the cooling system under pressure to identify the source of the leak. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the coolant leak and replace any damaged parts.
