Hey guys new to the forums an mustang life ( came from an Toyota). Any how I have a problem- not sure if a big deal or not - I drove to pump some gas about 3 miles from my house, I got home an know dissed there was a massive water leak hitting the cats.

It was poring water, checked all the fluids everything find no over heating kinda clear an bronze looking. It went away but started it revved it a little didnt see it come back so I moved it outta the drive way an a massive trail of water So ant help is welcomed please thanks fellas.

That is the weep hole for to allow the condensation from the A/C to get out.

I don't have working a/c or a lease think my freon is low. But never run it or use it so it leaks water when it wants too?

Sure its not antifreeze?

A leaking heater core will also leak from that hole in the firewall.

It hasn't rained here in Cali for a while, just decided to poor water. I was reading when water comes outta the weep hole it's time for a water pump, because the seal broke. If so how long do I have to replace it or can I even drive it ?

Weep hole is on the water pump. Condensate drain is on the fire wall. So leaking at the firewall has nothing to do with with your water pump.

Any water inside on passenger side front floor under dash? Check the heater hoses going into the heater core.

Nothing wet on the inside, just started to poor water kinda bronze looking then clear. I was told my water pump seal broke but doesnt over heat, run different stay nothing passed the "m" on normal an it stopped leaking. I was worried on how I could drive it like that or even If I could but haven't seen any problems. How could I tell if it is my water pump seal or pump. Also no weird noises or clicks, just purrs.
