Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer
Long story short, this is my first venture into the mechanic world, I know big task for a green pea.... But im a single mom and have to get home to my kids.My freeze plugs blew and after two days of swimming in the mud under this Blazer I was finally done.... only to realize the head gaskets were blown. 2 WEEKS later I think I finally have it put together and coolant is leaking out as fast as I can put it in from the front passenger side of the block, best I can tell without tearing it back apart. And When the fuel pump comes on I can smell Fuel without turning it over, which it wont do anyway. Please Help. My kids need there mamma. thank you and God Bless.
Unfortunately it sounds like the head gasket/s were not torqued down correctly with new stretch bolts. Sorry but it requires stripping down again and sorting out.

Testimonial: "I did not seal the water pump correctly. Still a long ways from done. Its a mess to say the least. Missing bolts and mystery brackets from the two days i had help. I have spent all day trying to find what 2 bolts sizes for the egr. And now im worried about the fuel line because when I FINALLY got the bracket secured by the fire wall on drivers side it didnt line up anywhere else and i pulled and pushed until i got it hooked... i aplaud yal for what you do. I thought my super mom instinct could get me through this if i researched and worked hard. But i feel a million miles away. Thank you for your help."

mmmmmmmm they are really hard to replace but most likelly is goin to be a intake gasket, i do recomend you to call arrown the auto repairs and ask for a pressure test to the cooling system
this test is not that expensive and will tell you exactly where is the leak coming from, but on this type of vehicles i badly see a freeze plug leaking.

When they changed the water pump and the leak stopped then the water pump was bad. If they changed the water pump and was still leaking then then it was not the water pump.
Where is the fluid leaking from, if there is white smoke coming from the tail pipe then good chance is that the head gasket is gone and pull the dip stick out to see if there is antifreeze mixxing with the engine oil.
It's common that the 3.4 V6 has intake manifold gasket go bad and leak. Check all the heater hose first, and try to find out where the leak is coming from.
Good luck and keep me posted, glad to help you as much as i can.

there are a couple of ways to fix the problem. first you can use pepper to plug the hole if it is a small leak. If it isn't, then use radiator stop leak. You can find this at a parts store

There is a small hole under the extension behind where the pulley is mounted, most times barely visible. If you see any coolant there the pump seal is leaking. Many times it will show up better with the cap off, as internal pressure can sometimes push the seal against the shaft and temporarily stop the leak. If any coolant is found there,(sometimes it will run down the lower hose and appear like a bad hose or clamp) the pump needs to be changed. No, it is in no way related to a manifold gasket leak.

If the coolant is in the cab they did not cause the problem changing the manifold gasket. It sounds like the heater core has failed, which is under the dash.
