After replacing the water pump why would the car still leak small amounts of antifreeze?

1st. Why did you change the Pump? Was it leaking or just making noise? If it was leaking, maybe that was not your leak. Maybe you have a hose with a pin hole spraying fluid at the pump. Did you use any gasket sealant on the new pump gasket? Are you sure the you installed the correct bolts in the correct holes. Some are longer than others in most applications. Use a good strong light and round extension mirror to inspect the area (WITH THE MOTOR STOPPED) where the leak is suspected.also check the timing chain cover gasget fluid also goes in that area and looks like the pump is leaking.

The type of car antifreeze that is safest to the environment is propylene glycol antifreeze. While it is still not totally safe, it is less toxic than other antifreeze.

The smell of antifreeze is very strong and distinct, it does not take much of a leak to smell it. The radiator could still be full and have a small leak. I would check for antifreeze dripping onto the exhaust or on the engine block because when it is hot the smell is much more noticeable from the fumes.
