How can you tell if coolant leak is thermostat or water pump on 2002 2.7 liter Chrysler Sebring convertible? It is leaking passenger side of engine through a one inch hole below from where the thermostat is. I understand a drain hole for a bad water pump is there too. How can I tell with out taking it apart which problem it is pump or thermostat? I can take on thermostat job but not water pump.
Do you
have the same problem?

These cars had a big problem with the o-rings leaking on the tube behind the water pump. Here is an image that show the tube and a guide to help confirm the issue:

I had the same problem it ended up being the tube itself rotted out. It cost me $47.00 for the part but it is all fixed!
