I was changing my oil last night and notice coolant dripping. As I stand looking at the motor it was coming from the right side(drivers). It looks like the water pump(think thats what it is) between the motor and air cleaner. There is a round 1 1/2 inch connection to the motor and seems to be leaking there. First off, is that what this is if not what is it called? Then, is it a big deal to replace this myself?

Yep thats the water pump. Its not hard to change there are 3 bolts that hold it to the head, one bolt that holds the impeller to the cam, and 2 bolts (I think) that hold the pipe to the pump. Then there is a hose at the bottom.
