Coolant leak

Car is Front Wheel Drive.

I have to refill my engine coolant at least every 2 days.

I have a puddle on the ground on the passenger side of the car.

I don't find a leak on the main hoses or anything.

I asked a guy at the local AutoZone, and he believes it's the water pump.

Any idea if he's right?

Hello,

Coolant can leak from a number of places. Hoses, radiator, water pump, heater core.
Best course of action is to do a thorough inspection including looking under the vehicle to deter mine where is a leak might be coming from.
If the leak is from the side the belt is located, then it could be the water pump. Keep in mind that it can also be the thermostat housing.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
