Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Pontiac grand am , my thermostat was sticking and eventually
went out. my freeze plug popped wich i replaced. also replaced thermostat .
now water pump hose is spraying belt system. with very minor leakage but it
doesnt seem like enough for there to be a hole in the pump itself.

There usually is a weep hole in the bottom of the water pump shaft once the bearing fails, it leaks coolant. If it is leaking, replace it, pumps are cheap. I'd replace the hoses too.
