Massive Coolant Leak in 2003 9-3

Leaving work today I came out to a massive puddle under my car, I put the key and got a warning that coolant level was low. I looked under the car and could see the source was near the passenger side front wheel. I then popped the hood, dumped a bottle of water in, started the car, turned it off and watched the water quickly drain out. Any one have any ideas on what the problem could be (I left the car at work, not wanting to drive it with no coolant). As an FYI, the coolant reservoir was at the right level at lunch (I just happened to change the headlight bulb today), there was no sign of leaks in that area.

It is a 2003 9-3 Vector.

Pump hose disconnected? Pump itself? Hole in lower radiator hose? Broken coolant bypass valve (if you have one)?


You're going to need to have someone pour water in and watch where it comes from.....
