Re: coolant leak after timing belt change

You don't say what engine you have.
If it is a V6 definitely should have changed the water pump.The pump bearings and seals fail at 60K miles + since the water pump is driven by the
timing belt this is the primary cause of early failure of the timing belt.

Chances are it is water pump. Water pumps start leaking quite often when they are not replaced together with timing belt and the belt's tension is not adjusted absolutely perfectly.
