Leaking Coolant

I noticed this morning that my coolant was leaking by the radiator. I attached some pictures below. I'm leaning towards a failed water pump but I'm not sure.

The water pump is on the front of the motor. Have you checked your hoses? It is either one of those or a cracked radiator.

I think you might be right. I'm going to check the hoses and the radiator later today. I'll keep you updated.

If you didn’t hit anything it might be the water pump leaking everywhere. The stock ones are garbage and will break at some point of the vehicles lifetime.

I have not heard of anything but a seal leak that drips down the engine. Most of those premature failures were caused by a faulty hose that allowed air into the water pump destroying the seal. I replaced that hose and am leak free at 51,000. Fingers crossed. All water pumps eventually leak in my experience. At least the Cyclone's pump is easy to reach and replace.
