Leaking water!

I noticed that a few days ago, I was leaking water from under the center of my car near the tranny pan, I have a 190E 2.6 and I was told that it was condensation from the a/c as it was only a few teaspoons of water. Today I noticed water leaking heavily from more towards the front ...i noticed the actual run-off point was coming from around the front left hand side of the oil pan this time. yesterday I decided to stop at a service station and add some water to the reservoir as I have noticed a more rapid decrease in the amount of coolant, however I have not noticed any heavy leaking before today. while I was at the service station I filled the reservoir all the way up, maybe too much because some spilled out, but the reservoir wasn't completely empty. Could this be the cause of the heavy leakage?

Your water pump seals may have gone. There is a small seep hole in the water pump - hard to see.

Strongly recommend against using Bar's Stop Leak in your cooling system as it may foul your cooling system and cause overheating issues. Locate the source of the leak and repair it properly.
