nasty coolant issue
97 intrepid 3.2 83,000 miles, taken good care of.
ok so went on a <10 minute drive, walk back out to my car and i have a pool of coolant under my car and minimal smoke coming from the hood. took a look at it best i could and this is what i saw. the coolant appears to have sprayed from the front of the engine backwards to just past the oil pan. my thoughts are either water pump or coolant hose decided to burst or disconnect. im living at an apartment and my tools are about 30 minutes away. i have a bit of experience with engines and im not afraid to work on any part of it myself.
my car used to burn off coolant to the point that it would overheat/loose almost all coolant 2 times a year. replaced some hoses and this hasn't been an issue for the last year and a half
input/ideas/suggestions/comforting words would be greatly appreciated
