Drove it 2 Miles to work last night came home I have antifreeze leaking like crazy, do u guys think it was the waterpump making the noises I been hearing. I did change the pulleys and drive belts in the winter when my pulleys were shredded. Be quite happy if so

I suggest you take it to a reputable shop and get it diagnosed. You are simply guessing at the problem and more likely than not, will cost You more money in the long run

Take it to a good shop.

If your car is already knocking there isn't really anything to do... the engine will have to come out of the car

It was the waterpump. It was broken. Any noise from under the hood just makes me think rod bearings, if I could post the pic of the waterpump I would

Glad it worked out

You may want to replace the rod bearings anyway
