      That looks like water pump location. You should be able to look up at it and see if it is the pump.
      Tradition is the art of making the same mistake repeatedly, on purpose.

      Gahhh that's what I figured I was doing my best to trying and circle back to the leak with my flashlight in the pitch black I'm going to take another look in the morning just to make sure.
      Thanks for the reassurance haha

      Water pump, thermostat, and/or hoses in that area (there's a bunch). You've just gotta get under there and look.
