Question about 1993 Chevrolet Camaro
That doesn't sound good, probably a freeze plug. you will have to pull out the trans to get to the backside of the engine block. To replace the plug itself is that hard but you are probably going to have to take it in. Sorry.

Yes, there are.
if you have ever sean a rear wheel drive mustang you notice the holes in the front. Chevy did the exact oposite.
your lucky you have an Automatic trany if this was a manual you would need to replace your clutch and bearings. so to find the leak. start high then go low. you may need to have your car on to find it. whne you fit it. turn off your car and wait 10 - 15 min befor removing the pipe/fitting or what ever.
1- if it's a sensor remove the sensor and replace make sure you use pipe sealant on the new sensor.
2- hose fitting... try tightening it first if that dose not work you might have to replace the hole hose. replacement will fix this problem.
3- if it is a gasket. check your oil right away. a leaking gasket can alow anti freez into your combustion chamber and oil passeage ways. this will kill your engine. and is a must take into a repaire shop.
4- freeze plugs must be removed and replaced, make sure you drain half your collant first(from the block not the rad). prafurably when cold. and reinstalled.
If your sure about the frezze plugs(frost plugs) the only way to find it is to look for witch one. on a v6 there should only be 2 there may be 4(one might be used for your block heater if you have it). but there along the bottem, on the side(both sides) of your engine above the oil pan and below headers. pretty much in the middle on the block.(hard to miss). and and from factory they are shiny silver, copper or gold looking. if one is missing you'll know it by the hole in the side of your engine.
only way to fix it is to replace it. you might need a tow or you can do it oyur self by buying one at an auto store.

Follow the lower radiator hose to where it meets the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing is where the opposite end of the lower radiator hose mounts to the engine.
Drain enough coolant from radiator until it is below the thermostat. Failure to do this will result in your antifreeze leaking out onto the ground.
Loosen clamp and remove radiator hose from thermostat housing. Some antifreeze will leak out, so have some rags available.
Remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing on and pull the housing from the engine. The gasket might make it a little difficult, so do not be afraid to pull hard. Do not strike it with any tools as you can crack it.
Remove the old thermostat and note its alignment.
Place a rag in the thermostat's mounting hole so no gasket material can enter the engine and then scrape the gasket from the housing and the engine.
Install the new thermostat in same position as old one.
Reinstall the housing and tighten down bolts snugly. Torque them with your torque wrench to 10 ft.-lbs. Make sure you do not over-tighten them.
Reinstall the radiator hose to thermostat housing and tighten the clamp.
Refill the radiator with coolant and start the engine, allowing it to reach normal operating temperature.
Check for any leaks at hose connection and thermostat housing. You can tighten them as necessary to stop any leaks.
Stop the engine and allow it to cool down completely then check the coolant level. Add coolant as required.
