    If you saw a leak near the water pump/crankshaft, then the pump is on its way out.

    The dealer most likely could not find it because they didn't fully warm up the engine before testing. Sometimes they only leak when they're hot. As stated above if you saw coolant on or around the pulleys it's most likely the pump. Very easy DIY.
