Hey. I am a total newbie and here is my question:

My temperature gauge lit up on my 90 Cherokee. I check under the hood and it was smoking so I put in water in a plastic tank on the passenger side under the hood (told you in a new haha) As I did that, something started to leak at the bttom of the car. I do not know what the problem is. Should I add antifreeze or what? If so, how do I do that? Or change the water pump? I have no clue. Just want some professional opinion about my problem. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Pour water in there again and see exactly where its leaking from. Thats where you need to start looking for the problem.

I agree with MachineMan, adding anti-freeze will be a waste and is deadly to animals. You need to narrow down where it's coming from. Lots of places are possible, bad hose, lose clamp, bad bottle, radiator, water pump or the engine block. If you are in a cold climate your better off bringing it to a shop because adding straight water will cause further pain.
