Leaking issue

Ok so here it goes.

The leak I am having trouble figuring out is under the engine on the oil pan edges. It's leaking radiator fluid which seems real weird. The coolant level is fine and I know it's not coolant...it's light neon green which is the color of radiator fluid. Do I just replace the gasket on the oil pan? Ill try and get pictures up later

It could be leaking from the front from hoses or water pump and just running along the side of the engine. Take a good look aroung for the leak. If it was coming from the oil pan your leak would look creamy and not the green colour

Makes sense...I have located both leaks...I did go to the mechanic about 3 weeks ago and he said I needed a new water pump so maybe that's why it's leaking... Thanks for your input though

I can tell you from experience if the pump is leaking it is coming from the weep hole in the water pump nose bearing, you had better go to the auto parts store tomorrow!! Mine did that and about a week after I noticed it and thought I'll replace it soon I was standing on the side of the road cussing myself for being an idiot! The front bearing seal is worn and it is causing the leak which is accelerating the wear on the bearing which will wear the seal even faster!

Ok so I actually found the leak...it was at the inlet pipe on top of the water pump. That somehow leaked all the way down to the bottom of the engine...got everything all new and put on today and an even bigger leak started to occur. Like it was almost pouring out near the bottom of the new water pump...I'm stumped and I don't feel like taking it apart again so I might go to the shop and have my mechanic make sure I did it right.
