Oddly enough, I don't even know where the water pump is on my car...and how would I check it?

I'm believing that I'm okay there. My car has a hefty leak and I think that fixing it, filling it it with coolant, I'm going to be okay!

I went through a container of coolant like every 2 days. Got the new water pump and good as new. Only thing wrong now is the smell of fresh gas...
