Antifreeze leaking

Hello all. This is day one in this site for me. I am leaking antifreeze out my water pump and don't have a lot of cash at the moment. Toss the season to be broke. Any cheap fix it's for now and is there any water pump y'all would recommend? It's a 2009 4.0 V6 Thanks

Agreed it most likely is the thermostat housing. Easy to fix and about $35 for the replacement part. About 3 bolts and 1 hose clamp to remove and replace

Well, I'm a helicopter mechanic and don't know much about cars(opened up myself for jokes I got it...)funny how that works. Had a few friends who looked at it and said it was.

Isn't the thermostat right above the water pump on our 4 litres? It could be that it is the thermostat, and it's dripping down onto the water pump giving the illusion that the pump is whats leaking.

The thermostat is right above the water pump, and the leaking housing will make you think it is the water pump at first. Take a look at the thermostat housing and look for a crack in the seam, usually happens on the back side (and when it goes completely it will flood the valley under the intake manifold)
