anti freeze leaking out...
Hi, I have 5.9 L 02' and I have a problem that developed tonight coming home from work. My antifreeze is leaking out of my truck fast. bottom front of the engine. it appears to be behind the large pulley on the bottom front of the engine. any guesses as to what this is and est stealer cost to repair?

That is the tell-tale from your water pump; it is telling. Time to replace it.

bought pump
HI, thanks for the reply. I bought a lifetime pump today from autozone, $60. I checked a few places around here to have the work done, and they started at $300+. Unfortunately, I have to work on it outside and it was 13 today. snow in forcast. I began to remove some items to get to the pump. I'm not seeing an easy way to remove the fan from the pump. I tried turning the large nut, but it turned the pulley, not the belt, but the pully turned anyway. I'm thinking of a screwdriver through one of the pump cover holes to wedge it. Not sure what else to try while pump is on the truck. Perhaps easier once removed from truck; hold the impeller and turn off fan nut. I'm not liking 2014 so far........
