My truck started smoking a little before I got to school and when I got here I opened the hood and noticed that I was leaking antifreeze all over the place. It looked like it was coming from the water pump?
Do you

Hello, I'm Danny.

The best way to test for leaks is to perform a cooling system pressure test. Without the car running it pressurizes the system with air and you can then see where leaks are coming from. Here is a tutorial showing how to perform a pressure test:

If the leak does turn out to be coming from the water pump here are a few tutorial showing how to drain and flush the coolant as well as how to replace the water pump:

I've attached picture steps below on how to replace the water pump on your S10. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.
