DODGE RAM COOLANT PROBLEM

1998 Dodge Ram • 162,000 miles

I am trying to figure out if I need to replace the waterpump or maybe another part.
recently I have been losing alot of coolant on a daily basis. And the truck is overheating. The water pump that is on it is very old and rusty looking. And there is liquid on the parts that are directly under the water pump. Help I need to know what to do

Sounds like you found the source of the leak, and of all of the possibilities this is about the least expensive. A pressure test might help to show where the coolant is flowing from.
