My car was over heating so I notice that my radiator was leaking. I changed that this afternoon, and there is still a leak while the car is running. So I am assuming that it is the water pump. Do you think that is what it is or are there other possiblities and if it is the water pump how would I go about changing it.
Do you
have the same problem?

With that many miles, it is recommended that you replace the water pump. But the water pump is located farther back towards the firewall, not by the radiator. If it was me, I would investigate and find where the leak is really coming from, either from the front towards the radiator, or from the two main hoses or the 5 other smaller hoses around the engine block.
