Where is it leaking antifreeze from? Sounds like that leak needs to be fixed.
Heater blowing cold air is probably due to no or low coolant.

Check your oil if its milky then it sounds like a blown head gasket

Check your heater hoses and check also inside of cab. Start to check all coolant lines from radiator to radiator. When you change parts I think you forgot to connect one coolant hose.

It is leaking coolant under the alternator area.

Water pump is somewhat below the alternator.

Ok got the leak fixed it was the timing cover gasket.

Interesting. Glad to know it's been fixed.

Closing thread.
