Engine Cooling problem
2001 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Automatic

I am having a problem with the coolant leaking. First started out slow filling up the resevoir every couple days now its almost everyday. I jacked the car up and looked underneath it seems like the leak is coming from the front side of the engine. There is a circular object cylinder to the right of and below the oil filter that I could swear steam was coming out of. But with it dripping there is coolant in various places. And when I look at the ground its directly above the puddle.
Do you
have the same problem?

I do believe your water pump has failed you. It is located inside the timing cover and is run off the timing chain idler.
