I have a slow coolant leak that appears to be coming from the hamonic balancer on the lower, center front of the engine V6 3800. I cannot find the source, is it possible a worn seal on the balancer would allow coolant to leak?

If it is on the balancer, 99% chance the water pump is leaking and it's running down onto the harmonic balancer. The balancer has nothing to do with coolant.

Under the water pump, there is a weep hole that coolant will leak from if the pump bearing or seal is bad. Check there for evidence of a leak.

Let me know what you find.
