Water leaking out the bottom of the front drive side of the car. I looked underneath and its dripping out what seems to be a whole that is almost in the center of what I would say in alignment with the steering wheel but underneath the car by the wheel well

Is it the water pump? The water pump has a weep hole that will leak coolant if the bearing or seal is bad in the pump.

I'm not sure. I put a board underneath it and the liquid is really clear like water and there is no smell to it. Where the water is coming from looks like a little pipe (but its not a hose or anything). Is this a serious fix? I do know the amount of water that normally drips out of the bottom of the car by viewing the puddle but today it is like non stop

Question. Are you using the AC? Is it hot and humid where you are located?

Okay, I'm near Pittsburgh and know you didn't need AC today. Are you sure it is water and not coolant?

There is no color to it. I laid a white particle board under the car and it was clear. I rubbed my hand over it and smelled it and it had no distinct stench

There isn't anything that takes regular water. Have you noticed this leak only today or has it been happening?
