Default Dealer, Not always right

Follow up to org post: coolant leak on the '99 sts that went to dealer without myself checking it out first....dumbie me. advisor called said, "need a water pump...." At that point knowing the pump was changed, some time ago.....plus with my own knowledge I really questioned their fix. However, had it done. Pick car up and drove 2 miles.....shut'r down... coolant leak still going on. drove back to dealer like NOW, to show. no leak at dealer. WTF. anyway brought car home and kept eye on it. days later, DIC says LOW COOLANT. So, start and fill and let run 10 minutes. Shut'r down and notice coolant leak again, same place! Lift hood and found leak............ Does anyone want to guess???? Hint, NOT A HOSE.

I'll leave up for 24/48 hours .....

I am sooooo pi--ed at myself!!! Not looking before taking to dealer.
