Sounds like the hard line that goes back to the heater core. Are you taking it back to the mechanic?

depending on where the water is coming from it could be a failing water pump

thank you tom, very very helpful. you did more with that answer thn most did. yes their is water on my passenger side and yes it is that pipe you stated in the responce and no even thought the mechanic did put on a new water pump .after he finished the job, that is when he said i need to check the lines behind the pump. i am pretty sure he probably knew it was the line but i paid up front. i will try my self .thanks again veryvery helpful mack
