    Default Can you spot what's leaking from these pics?

    I noticed the other day while the engine was cold that it was leaking a light-pink liquid. While driving to work a low coolant light came on so I assumed I may have a leak in my water pump. After looking over the water pump, I dont see any liquid (not even coming out the weep hole).
    I look a little further around and the base of my power steering pump is obviously wet. This liquid drips all the way towards the rear and drops off around the skid plate.
    The thermostat doesn't seem to be leaking, is there a secondary water pump? The leaking looks as if it's centered around the front of the transmission...but gravity could be sending the liquid there.

    The water pump's overflow has a pink-colored liquid very similar to what's leaking, that's why I think it has something to do with the cooling...but I dont see any of the cooling system parts visibly leaking.

    The labeling for the first pic is as follows: (This is on the driver's side facing the passenger's)
    1) What i believe is my power steering pump
    2)The pinkish-orange liquid that's dripping
    3)Same as #2

    Second pic: (This is on the passenger's side facing the driver's)
    1) and 2) = the liquid in question
    3)the power steering pump (the shine is because it's wet)
    4)From what I remember when taking the pic that's the water pump

    Forgive my newbishness, I just picked up this truck a week ago and I'm still a young college student.

    Well, after letting it run some more I started to see water coming out the weep hole...it wasn't earlier but definitely is now. Looks like I'm replacing the whole water pump, am I correct?
