Default Im runnng hot and cant stop the leak....

So about a week ago there came a bad noise from the engine. I light grumbling that I associated right away with a water pump. Sure enough three days later it is leaking like a faucet from the water pump area. So I went and got the kit and today I replaced the water pup. t-belt, etc. The pump would not spin freely, it definitely was bad.

Put it back together and it is STILL leaking from the same general area.
I am baffled. WTF did I miss?

Anyone got any ideas?

What should I do?

Freeze plug pop or rust out? Water pump gasket goes on the pump body unless it moved out of the groove when you were installing the pump to the block.

How did you check for engine coolant leaks? Did you do an engine coolant compression test?
