Took pump off and replaced it but it is still leaking coolant behind the pump next to the block. Could this be just a gasket and what would it entail to replace it?

    Check the bypass hose to see if that is your leak! That one that's hidden behind the A/C compressor bracket and hooks to the pump. Also the heater hose outlet that also connects to the H2o pump. Yes, it is possible the pump to block gasket is leaking as well.
