Leaking radiator fluid.

I have a 2001 jeep wrangler 4.0 and looks like I have located the leak, I'm thinking its the water pump but not sure. Here's a few pics hopefully anyone can tell me what it might cost to get it fixed or if it might be something else. Also the hose connected seems to be wet as well but not sure if its cause of the water pump?

I had this come up and found that mine was a weeping water pump. It's best just to replace it rather than waiting for the inevitable of going out and leaving you stranded. Here are a couple of threads that identify and also help with the problem. Good luck but it's not a biggie.

More than likely the water pump is leaking through its weep hole which indicates it is going bad. Replace it with a MOPAR OE water pump, those cheapy water pumps sold at places like Autozone aren't worth the effort to install. Discounted Mopar pumps are available from places like Mopar parts | Dodge parts | Chryler parts | Jeep parts | WeRMopar.com and Jeep Wrangler Parts & Accessories | JK, TJ, YJ, Unlimited | Jeep OEM Parts
When you have a choice, buy American.
