Waterpump Replacement.

Well after 122,000 miles I have to do my first major repair under the hood. I went out this past weekend and niticed a little green dribble under my baby, I almost freaked beause she wasn't feeling well. I opened the hood and checked the hoses, cap, overflow and radiator and they all seemed fine so I drove her to the Stealership and after a few checks they told me it was my water pump. I could pay these guys $100 an hour to fix it but I would rather do it myself. It looks pretty simple and that has me worried lol. Anyone got any advice before I start the disassemble?

You noticed a GREEN drip? Are you using HOAT antifreeze?
