I posted this on the general forum too, but im posting here to try and get some more help (im replicating the other post). Tonight I was listening for noises from my engine and I had a light and I noticed speckles of a wet green fluid(coolant). THis was on my top IC pipe right where it goes over the top rear timing belt cover, then I look on the side of the top rear timing belt cover and there are speckles of green fluid all over that too. I dont see any coolant on the ground or anything. I pulled the front top timing belt cover and there isn't any fluid on it or the timing belt. Once the car cools down Im going to pull the IC pop and take off the rear top timing belt cover (that fluid is on) and check that side of the belt. If there is any otehr place you guys think this may be coming from besides the waterpump please post your advice/opionion/ideas here!
-Thanks! :)

Update

Okay well I pulled off the top timing belt covers, the rears exterior was covered by a spray of coolant, but the inside was dry. The timing belt has no fluid on it at all, and I cant see any fluid on the inside of the the main timing belt cover (although its hard to see hehe). Also the cam gears that timing belt goes on are dry. So at this point I have no clue where the spray of fluid came from. Theres no fluid on the ground under the car. I cant find any fluid by the front top timing belt cover, only on the rear and just some specs on a few other parts. Take a look at the following pictures I took of things (including what else the fluid was on.). Click and drag the link to your image bar to get he pictures to work, if you just click them you will get a error saying you are trying to view a picture from outside imagestation.

-Thanks guys, I cant seem to find where this came from as its only on the rear top cover mainly then some bits on a few parts really close to the top rear cover. I dont think its the water pump as there was no fluid on the inside of the top timing belt covers, and there is no fluid on the timing belt. There isn't any coolant on the ground under the car......

ever thought?

ever thought maybe just replacing all the hoses? That way you pretty much seal off any problem and maybe delay them bursting for a long time...
