    Do I Need a New Water Pump? Maybe I'm Just Paranoid?

    I'm a total noob here, so bear with me! About a month ago I was letting my cold blooded FJ60 warm up for about 20 or 30 minutes (it was frozen solid, only about 5 degrees outside). When I came out I noticed a large pool of coolant under that car. It took me awhile to locate the leak because...
