Question about Chevrolet Silverado 2500
I've been chasing a coolant leak under my engine for days now. The top of the engine is dry, I've replaced the water pump, checked the hoses and rad, replaced the heater hose quick release fitting on the intake manifold and thought I had it fixed but a drive to Costco after and it was still leaking the same or worse. I just can't seem to find where the leak is coming from. Has anyone else had this problem with this model and could give me a clue as to where it could be coming from? Thanks in advance .
It is most likely the water pump, the air flow under the engine causes the coolant to go back under the truck. Fell under the front of the water pump for moisture or a slimy liquid.

SOURCE: coolant leak
You may want to check it with an ultraviolet dye and light kit.You can get a kit from a good auto parts store and do it yourself. They have dyes for every kind of fluid a car has. A very handy tool and not very expensive either.

May not apply to yours, but I have seen coolant lines routed under intake (actually through plenum below carb)...the idea is to pre-heat and vaporize fuel to prevent "puddling" under carb. If you look at most v8 engines, exhaust is routed the same way, to do the same job. You may need to use a mirror to see under there to determine exactly what's going thats causing leak.
