    My 1992 124 series E230 is losing a worrying amount of coolant. It drips steadily from a pipe which runs down the front of the engine, it appears to originate from the body of the water pump. What is wrong? Does this mean a new water pump? Please advise.

    It is very likely that the water pump has failed. Not an expensive job either.
