Well, i got coolant below the water pump. Good thing, wasnt ready to do a headgasket.

I can find it leaking anywhere. It leaked a gallon in 2000 miles. Its all over some black box under the pump and on the tranny. It doesnt feel wet anywhere on the pump. White residue all over the place, its green coolant.

How in the $%^& do i find the leak?? Is it the gasket or pump or what??

Should i just try more tablets?? 82,000 miles.

More tabs probably won't help much. The cover gaskets have been known to be a problem and have been redesigned. Run your fingers under the water pump cover. If that is dry, use a mirror to check the back of the pump to see the shaft seal.
