Just bought a 1999 buick regal 3800 it leaks coolant when first start, under engine
not sure sure if is coming from the recovery tank or water pump. Not overheating yet.

Best way to check is to use a pressure tester. This will pressurize the system then you can use a light and mirror to find the leak.

If you do not have access to these, a mirror at least to put it under the water pump pulley and look for a leak. Or look for orange corrosion.

Check behind the alternator, above the water pump. Often there are undetected leaks in the necks there that a ton of people don't even know exist. Invest in a good thick book on your car. A Chassis manual is usually about $10 on eBay, but worth so much more in my opinion.
