I have a 2000 Boxster w/ 65k miles. I pulled into the garage tonight after work, and as I walked around the back of the car, water just came gushing out. No lights were on the whole way home from work. I opened the rear lid and there was condensation on the water reservoir. About 10k miles ago, I had to replace the water pump. Could it have gone again? What do you think? Any ideas?

Water came gushing out from underneath the car?

Sounds like a NIGHTMARE. I'd cry.

Sounds like it COULD be the cooling pump... might be one of the lines going to the reservoir... or the reservoir itself failed. I have heard of some reservoirs cracking....

Definitely DO NOT run the engine until you figure it out, or have it towed to a wrench.

Wel its hot there, If the water reseviour level is fine, then i would say thats condensation off your AC lines which is ok.

Water or coolant? IF water, the a/c is likely just taking its usual dump. No worries.

Coolant, well, it is off to the mechanic you go!

Brake fluid? Call the tow truck.

Let us know what you find out!
