Radiator Leak

So I got a bad coolant leak. Its coming from right lower behind fan (as your standing in front of the jeep) Has a drip while idling and i cant figure out where is it coming from.. when i hit the throttle it hit the fan and throws coolant everywhere. Im guessing water pump .. im no mechanic but correct me if im wrong the only hose that could have a pin hole is the hose that comes from the bottom of the radiator to the pump correct?? because i i exam'ed it .. its good.

My money is on the water pump. Not a hard job to do and should take under 2 hours. Just be sure to get all of the old gasket off. Get a mopar replacement from the dealer along with thermostat and gaskets and do not use RTV. The cheap advance auto pumps are Chinese junk. Check your hoses since this would be a good time to replace them if they are beat up.

I just got my stuff at the dealer. They usually keep that kind of stuff in stock.
