Is this in the front or the rear of the engine?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
toward front, I can reach the two nuts front the front of the car.

The water pump is straight above that is probably the problem, that can be accessed from the top but usually drips down in that area.

I have looked at the water pump and felt around it but I see no indication that this is where the problem is because my experience has been that I can see fluid coming from some where there.

You really can not see the water pump on these without removing the pulley, so you may need to remove that to see if the pump is leaking.
