Thanks. This leak though leaks weather the car is running or not. Its a slow drip with the car off, and a very fast drip with it running. So fast that the coolant resevior will empty out in ten minutes.
Regardless, im going to have it diagnosed to know for sure.

For about $12 you can buy a one month subscription to the same reference material we use here.

Or, you can go to Autozone, Pep Boys, or one like them and buy a Chilton's or Haynes manual and do the work yourself. And tools you need can be rented or borrowed from the same stores. You can save more than $100 doing it yourself.

It was the water pump leaking. If I could do it myself it woulda cost $170 for water pump, thermostat, and timing stuff. Since I couldn't, $700. Thanks for the help guys. Ima get to posting my next problem with this car.
