Question about 2002 Chevrolet Blazer
I just replaced the freeze plugs and then the head gasket. There is a fuel leak when I turn the key on I can hear the fuel pump come on and then smell fuel. It does not turn over. When filling with coolant it leaks almost directly out in the vicinity of the water pump. I had never worked on a car before this. And to boot I am stauck in a friends muddy driveway. Single mom and I need to get home. Thank you in advance for any help.
Sounds like one of 3 things.... (none are good)
Someone made a mistake on a freeze plug and thats the leak.
The water pump wasn't installed properly, leaking from the base.
The block is cracked near the water pump.
As for the smell of fuel..... something was not re-installed properly and you have a fuel leak.
Sorry this was not a solution as much as it was bad news.

Testimonial: "I appreciate it. I fixed the waterpump leak. I struggled with the fuel line and bracket and am still concerned about it. But the leak is gone to my knowledge. Learning to set the distributor tommorow. And if i can find a tap and die set finish up. Bad news or not, fixing this is my only option. If you can tell me anything that might make it easier simpler or less of a disaster than it has been im all ears. But it cant require anymore money or super strength cause, this girl is broke and tired lol. Thank you again."
