I have a leak coming from the 90 degree elbow just above the water pump on my 2003 Pontiac Bonneville. The water seems to be shooting out when I give the car more gas. Else it is a quick drip. A- how do I fix this.B - is this a costly repair?

Cheapest repair would be to drain coolant to level below leak, clean elbow, then use an epoxy to stop leak.
