I think my 1994 camaro is leaking coolant near the intake. I really hope it isnt the head. Any help would be appreciated.

This is a common problem with this engine. The gaskets between the intake manifold and the heads need to be replaced. This will require other gaskets, seals and o-rings. Fel-pro makes a intake gasket kit that comes with everything "gaskets and seals" in it. Ask for the perma-dry gasket if available.

You can start by pressure testing it. Do you see it coming out by the head? Those are not too bad to fix, leaking into the cylinders or oil chanels could cause more problems. With it just leaking out you may be able to get it fixed by replacing the gasket alone.
Use a straight edge to check if the head is not warped while you have it off.
I hope this is what you are looking for.

Coolant leaking from 1994 Sonoma. Is not near the water pump or radiator, but more towards the back of the block. What might it be?

It could be a heater hose, an intake manifold gasket, or a rusted through freeze plug. You must "look" to see where the leak is originating from.

May be coming from the intake gaskets. Coolant does pass through the heads into the intake manifold.
There should also be coolant passages in the bottom of the Throttle Body. You would see a couple of 3/4 and/or 5/8 hoses and maybe a tube goiung into the Throttle Body. This is so warm water passes through the TB so it does not freeze up.

Do a search on dextron gm coolant ( the orange looking stufff)

Best bet is to go have yout truck inspected.

My 1994 Camaro v6 3.4 liter is leaking coolant and it appears to be coming from around the head but there is no coolant in the oil and its not coming out of the exaust. Its still got plenty of power and...

The head gasket is leaking externally that is why there is no coolant in the oil and no smoking from the exhaust.This is also why it is running good.You will have to replace the head gasket eventually or it will start leaking internally.If you do one you should do them both.It is easier to do both now then to tear it apart again later.Good luck.

My son has a 1995 camaro 3.4 L engine. Recently there's been a cooling problem. Sometimes when he goes out it runs fine with the temp around 180/190. I put in a 180 thermostat.Sometimes the temp goes up...

The 3.4 L engine is problematic. My Camaro started overheating intermittently and my mechanic said he was afraid the head gasket was going. Hoping that it was anything else, I replaced everything in the cooling system from the radiator back. It kept overheating, but not consistently. Some days it ran fine and other days it ran into the red zone before the engine was even warm. And despite not leaking, it was down about a quart of water every time I drove it. Finally, it started running rough and eventually it was undrivable. It was in fact the head gasket -- a common problem with that engine. You can't replace the engine; Chevy doesn't support it any more, there is no crate engine that fits and the cost of replacing the head gasket is close to or exceeds the value of the car, since most mechanics want to drop the engine and tranny out the bottom to get at it. I got lucky and found someone who did the work without droppng the block and had the heads remilled. It still cost over a grand, but I love my car so much that I would have replaced it anyway. I've been driving it for close to two years since then. At 188K, I know it's not going to last forever, but the last gen Camaro is the last beautiful American car and driving it gives me so much pleasure that it's worth it. Good luck.

There is a coolant leak in my 1996 chevy camaro. it has the 3.4 litre V6. I replaced the intake gaskets and still have a slow coolant leak into the engine oil? Could it be a head gasket?

Since you used a question mark after "engine oil", I assume that you're not too sure where the coolant is going. While it's certainly possible for the coolant to end up in your oil, you should be able to see byproducts of combustion in your coolant (a very dirty coolant) if the head gasket is leaking. It could also force coolant out of your overflow as you drive, but not while you are sitting idle, making it hard to actually see if this happening to your coolant. Check your coolant for signs of this "blow-by". If your engine is losing power, you might want to do a cylinder balance check.
