2006 Pontiac Grand Prix 3800, constant coolant leak on passenger side. Changed the elbows from the tensioner and is still leaking. Leaks worse once it gets to operating temperature and fans kick on.

Can you see where it is leaking from to identify a hose or other component? Can't see where the tensioner could be at fault. It just keeps the belt tight on the pulleys and would have no impact on a leak. What "elbows" are you speaking about?

Can't locate the leak except fluid coming off the skid plate below the car. The coolant runs through the tensioner into the engine in this GM model. Two hose elbows come from tensioner to the engine


Might be the water pump.
