It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.

I have changed all parts associated, hoses, outlet housing, themostat, and radiator. It turns out to be the reservoir bottle.

How do you change the thermostat on a 2001 chevy s-10 4.3 liter v-6


Hello rev7, this is an easy job on the 4.3 litre engine.

Drain some of the engine coolant by placing a bucket under the radiator and open the petcock (the plastic bolt facing the engine) located on the bottom of the radiator. Empty the coolant from the radiator until the radiator is about half full.

Remove the air intake, hose and the coolant neck (outlet) bolts using a ratchet and & 13 mm socket. Remove the outlet from the intake manifold. Take note of the direction the thermostat is seated and then remove the thermostat from the housing.
Clean the remains of the old gasket or sealer from the housing and outlet. Install the thermostat and gasket to the intake manifold in the same direction it was seated before removal. Put a thin layer of silicone on the water outlet surface. Install the outlet before the silicone dries

Install the water outlet bolts. Tighten the bolts to 18 foot pounds
Filll the radiator completely and check for any leaks. Install the radiator cap. Install the air cleaner inlet hose. Start the engine and turn the heater on with the blower on high & run the engine until the thermostat opens. The top radiator hose will be hot when the thermostat opens.

Turn off the vehicle and allow the engine to cool. Check fluid level and add more antifreeze if needed.....Good luck & hope this helps.
