Re-torque the intake manifold bolts in the proper pattern. also check that the hose from the filter to the throttle body is hooked up correctly with no air leaks

Is it normal for antifreeze to drip out when changing exhaust manifold gasket on a 2001 gmc 1500 with the 5.3 ???

No it is not. Sounds like a leaking intake gasket which most chevy's are notorious for. Thankfully companies like Fel-pro make a "problem solver" gasket, which will elimate the chances for the leak agin.

I put new gaskets in a 1990 5.0 f150. It cranks good but wont start. It has compression, gas and spark. What is wrong/or needs to be checked?

Your timing is off. Did you have the distributor out when you changed gaskets or maybe took the plug wires off?

1998 chvy 1500 loses power

check the intake gaskets. in the middle front and middle rear. If they are oily, it more than likely sucked part of the gasket in. When it warms up the leak gets bigger. The easy way to check is to get some carb cleaner and spray all around the intake while idling and warm. DO NOT SPRAY ANY EXHAUST PARTS , carb cleaner is combustible. The truck should stumble or even shut off when spraying with the carb cleaner if there is a leak.

Cooling leaking inside engine

If it does there may be a recall on it. Always check with the dealer before doing a big repair. Even though the truck is old they may still do it for free.
