"I'm sorry Jason, I didn't mean to scare you. If this is the first time the engine has been run this season, it is very possible there is a cooling hose disconnected from the winterization process. Take a good look around, try to find the source of the water. When you do, respond here, this will make it much easier for us to help you. Good luck

Possibly the water pump.
