Coolant LEAK! 2010 Acadia.

Hi
Anyone know what I might have wrong?
I hear water pumps are common...
9k miles ago, I had a leak, went to the dealer, they couldnt find anything wrong, topped off my coolant and thats all she wrote.
Today I come home, park in the garage and smell it...
I back up and they it is, leak again!!
Big Orange puddle!

I called the dealer, and they are taking it in the am, and I'll be in a rental.

This time I want to tell them to remove the plastic shield and get in there and see whats up, this is crazy....
Has to be signs in there somewhere.

Im a wrench, so I know whats up, I just dont wanna deal with it since its still covered. Otherwise it would be in the air right now with me under it.

Any thoughts??
Common issues??
Loose lines, hoses, water pump, etc??
Thanks

Like I mentioned, I generally work on my own and others car and bikes etc, so I really want to tear into it, but since its new, I'll wait and let them deal with it...

No other know issues jayt. Ours was slowly leaking for a couple of months (just noticed the reservoir being low every couple of weeks) before we saw it dripping on the floor of our car hole.

Re: Coolant LEAK! 2010 Acadia.

most of us will agree its the pump....
But theres a very slight change you may have a leaking hose- pin prick-- or leaking where the clamps are on the hose...
But I think were all betting on the pump
