Help!!

I have a major coolant leak somewhere behind the water pump and power steering pump. Water pretty much comes out as fast as I put it in. Cant see exactly where it is though. Any ideas ??

Front main cover seal is shot? I know it's a common issue on the 3.0L's, but it doesn't gush out as fast as you're describing unless the seal is just gone.

Have you checked your hose connections? Does it leak when running? Can you see the coolant spraying or leaking out? Not like you don't already know this, but just be careful when looking around under there. Wouldn't want to have a thread about you getting burnt with HOT coolant.

Check where the thermostat housing connection is, common spot for a blowout too.
