Sounds like the water pump.  Time to do a timing belt and water pump job.

....and I've got a new afterun pump, replaced after the impellor housing self
destructed about two years ago.


Not to be a jerk but, let me emphasize that I've found the coolant leak to be
coming from the front of the engine via the trackmarks of coolant drips, and
where it's dripping from.  So my question on "any suggestions" was more toward
does anybody know of any other potential leak sources on the front (timing
belt side) of the engine that I hadn't already named, and for the ones named,
has anyone come across an easier than pulling apart the front end trouble
shooting method.
