I have a major leak coming from behind the water pump that I replaced. It seems its around the head gasket but no water in oil or water in exhaust. On the driver side of the engine what is there on that side that would cause such a leak. As soon as I pour water in it comes right back out. Is there a hose or bypass on that side or a freeze plug I cant see? What r ur thoughts. Thanks

See my profile,

If this just started, after the pump change out

Maybe the pump is defective/ Or its not seating down right/ or you have PINCHED a WIRE, ETC, under it while installing the pump
