Coolant Leak

I have a coolant leak in my 89 Civic hatch. Where could it be coming from? These are the pics I took. If anyone has any questions to help me diagnose please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks in advance.

Re: Coolant Leak

Looks too high to be the waterpump. May be the headgasket. Clean it up real good, let the car idle , then sit there and watch for it to leak.

Re: Coolant Leak

I think that's the weep hole for the waterpump. It shouldn't leak near that much, just a couple of drops. Are you overheating? Is it losing a significant amount of coolant?

Re: Coolant Leak

Wait for more opinions just to be sure but, I think it's time to change the timing belt/waterpump.
