Well, I noticed a wet spot on the floor of my garage and thought I had a radiator leak, I jacked up the car and took a look...

Well it seems the leak is coming from the crank pully area??!! I am not very familiar with the miata engine yet (i just bought a little while ago) and not sure were the coolant could be coming from

Any advice and any idea how much this is gonna cost me to fix

I'm pretty handy so If its not too tough I would just fix it myself

This is just one possibility, and potentially one of the more expensive repairs - It could be the water pump nearing the end of its life. I replaced mine this year because i had a similar indication of a leak. The timing belt would need to come off to access the water pump, so you might consider replacing it as well. I found the task much easier than I had anticipated, especially with a few other roadster buddies around for moral support....

water-pump kit will run you about $70, t-belt kit about $95, maybe replace the Thermostat while your at it, $18. You'll need basic tools including a torque wrench that goes up to 120 ft lb. I think.
