First of all which engine do you have? 3.1, 3.8 or 3.8 s/c? The more information you give about the issue the more likely it is that someone will be able to help you out.

It's probably just water condensation dripping off the accumulator for the A/C system. There is nothing on the car that runs pure water. Only coolant, washer fluid, etc.

Yeah, I had a '97 grand prix. Only times it ever had leaks it was coolant. Once was a cracked radiator tank, once was the water pump going bad and leaking out the weep hole and down the front cover. That could possibly be a source of a leak if the fluid is really coming from the pulley area on the front of the engine as you say... but in that case it's not water. At least it's not unless you filled your cooling system with straight water. :thumbs: Might want to check it again. Coolant can look pretty watery and not have much color when it's spread out in a puddle, but it should have a smell too it and if you rub it between your fingers it will be kinda slippery.
