Greetings All:
Hav'nt been here in a while, been busy fighting the Big C. Question Please and help requested.
1984 C4, 15K miles, currently inside for the Winter. Upon checking car today, found a puddle of Anti-Freeze on the floor under the front crossmember area. Probably about 3 inches or so across. Tried checking best I could, felt hoses, everything else best I could with my big hands and light. Could not find or feel any wet spots? Checked radiator, was down probably an inch or less of fluid.
Car don't smoke on start up any white smoke, runs great. Is it possible water pump gasket dried up or pump itself leaking? This puddle has happened over the last 4 to 4 1/2 months while car inside being stored for the Winter here in the Midwest.

Any ideas where to look further? Last question please: Is it a pretty straight forward project to change water pump if I have to? This is a 350, with Cross-Fire Injection. Again, only 15K Miles.
As always, THANKS in advance for all your help in this matter,look forward to your replies.

Regards: Willow

WB !!! SORRY BOUT YOUR BATTLE WITH THE BIG C.
THE ABOVE PIC SHOWS THE WATER PUMP,THAT VIEW IS WITH THE ALT BRACKET ETC REMOVED,COULD BE THE FRONT SEAL ON THE PUMP THAT THE PULLY SITS ON,INNER SEAL,ANTI OUT THE WEEP HOLE,BACK GASKETS.THE LOWER RAD HOSE GOES ON THE PUMP ALSO SO IT COULD BE THE HOSE ,OR THE HOSE CLAMP LOOSENED UP. IF YA CAN BORROW A RAD PRESSURE TESTER,OR A BORE SCOPE WOULD HELP IN REALLY TIGHT PLACES TO LOCATE THE LEAK.ITS NOT A HARD JOB TO R&R THE PUMP.I DID MINE ON THE 85.
