massive coolant leak....help please!
I replaced my water pump a few weeks ago and everything was going great....until last night I got home from work and a cloud of smoke arose from under the hood as I parked. I refilled the tank this morning but to the point today when I got to work my car was near over heating, after a few hours of cooling off I went to add some more coolant mixture to the expansion tank. As I was pouring the coolant into the tank I heard the coolant leaking on to the ground. So I poured distilled water into the tank to try and track the leak but I could not see it any where. The only thing I can tell is that the water is falling from (within?)the engine around the bell housing/sway bar area but not anywhere above that I can see....
Any help would be much appreciated.

As for the massive leak, at the firewall on the driver side is a small cover with several hoses running under it. There is a pump there that may be the culprit. Remove the 3 small clips from the cover and take a good look.
As for the running water when you are filling the res., are you using a funnel or just pouring it in? There are holes for the overflow at the filler neck which may be the problem. The water/antifreeze will be leaking on the passenger side at the wheel well.
