ANTIFREEZE LEAKING BY RADIATOR EVERY SO OFTEN

Jaguar XJ8

I have a 1999 XJ8 Jaguar with 93000 miles, I've noticed on twice in two days that when I have returned home from a short run to town the antifreeze is leaking underneath front passenger side, I fill the tank and I ran for about 5 min. And nothing would leak out made a couple of small trips around town with no problem then the next day ran an erron for about 10 min. Returned home and leaked again, is this a sign the water pump is going bad, what should I do?

The anti freeze drips at times on the passengers side. Try to pin point where the anti freeze is comming from, it could be a hose, the overflow, or water pump. When you say you filled it up, are you talking about the resevoir? They are not filled completly usually about half way in order to leave room for expansion.
