Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500
The coolant level goes down with no sign of a leak. the resavore has fluid in it. the truck makes a gurgling sound at times. where is the fluid going?
Look for water out tail pipe after you warm it up then rev motor to 1500-
2000, ,check oil for milky color on dip stick, and trany fluid &cooler for milky color, check coolant tank for,
smell of exhaust or just not a clean coolant smell , if in dought open a bottle of anti freez thats what it should be like, im thinking head gasket
or a small leak under pressure when driving ,gurgling is coolant moving back to coolant tank an back to motor. good luck ,
hope some of this helped , H.WOODY.

Replace the low coolant sensor right side if radiator. When you replaced the radiator
they may have installed the old sensor.
I had the same problem.

Since you are not overheating, thermostat is likely not the problem. Chances are you have some seepage at either an intake or head gasket that is dripping onto a hot pipe when you stop. Leak may be so small at this point that coolant loss is barely noticable. but if you look carefully at all head/block parting lines and check all obvious connections that could leak, you will find the problem. Any white smoke from exhaust?

You need to fix the Leak in your hydraulic system to your clutch on your transmission. The reason that your transmission is not going in to gear right is that the fluid is to low to push the throw out bearing to disengage the clutch fully.
Once the fluid get's too low, you'll not be able to disengage the clutch to put it in to gear or change gear.
Check the fluid level to your hydraulic clutch reservoir and fill to the right level and fix the leak in the hydraulic lines.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, glad to help.
