My 1994 acura integra is steaming from right by my water pump seal and all the hoses.I recently replaced my water pump but the o-ring I bought was one size too big. Could this possibly be the problem?Ive checked my oil for discoloration and it seems to be fine. My car isnt over heating and will still turn on and run. Any advice would be well appreciated. Thanks.

You need to verify where the leak is coming from. The oversized O-ring is not a problem if it is seated correctly but it can get misaligned while installing due to its size.

Get a pressure test done to check the leak and rectify asap to avoid damaging the engine due to overheating when coolant runs low.
