Q: Discovered coolant leaking from somewhere but don't know where? on 2002 Buick Century

I opened up my hood and saw that the coolant had splattered all over the alternator, belt, and fan. I would like to know the cause of this. I often smell the coolant from the inside of the car when heat is on.

Replace the water pump. Easy job if handy with a wrench! 3.1V6, a mechanic can do it in 30 min.or less. Have seen this so many times on that engine i know what it is!
Thanks it was my water pump. I was for certain it was going to be my intake manifold gasket.
