98 trooper with 3.5 had I replaced the waterpump and timing belt about 30,000 miles ago. I had the starter go bad and replaced that and noticed a coolant leak. Hoses good (also replaced) do you think that water pump is bad already or should I just open it back up and take a peak?? Im not sure what else might be leaking if its comming from under the front motor cover, which that what it looks like.

Coolant coming from front cover is highly likely to be either the water pump seal or gasket.

Thanks for reply, this hasnt leaked for a while now, I think the oil change place may have overfilled something but I am not sure. I usually do my own oil changes but when cold I will take it in. Thats my guess right now. Thanks again
