I seem to have a coolant leak way under the engine, past the water pump. When I had my brakes fixed, the repairman told me he thought it was be coming from the timing chain cover. Is this a likely area for such a leak? Aside from this locale, where else in this vicinity could the leak be coming from?

I had a leak from the timing cover in my 89 with the 3.8. The bolt that is a stud (it is a bolt that an accessory bracket attaches to) was loose. I would guess it could come from there, or be a leaking hose that is spraying it (I had that also). I couldn't find it until I put in that nasty stop leak stuff, and could see the spray pattern. I can't get that stuff off the external engine or the firewall or the wiring harness. I never sprayed or leaked that i could find but it was from the rivet that held the hose clamp on.
