Question about Chevrolet Silverado 2500

1 Answer

Have a 2000 Chevy 2500 PU with 4WD. Truck over heated this morning. Some fluid noticed under truck. I waited for it to cool off then filled the radiator overflow reservoir with water. As fast as I put it in it came out. There's a major leak at the back side of the engine closest to the firewall. I am really hoping its not a head gasket. So far no water in the oil. Leak appears mid way up on the engine between the engine and firewall. Any idea what the problem is???

Don't worry about the head gasket. That would occur only when the engine is operating. Think freeze plug or heater hoses-heater core.

I have an 1998 chevy s10 automatic.this morning I noticed transmission fluid on the ground I checked and it comes out from a hose on top of the transmission but I don't see where it hook up?


From what I have read elsewhere: There is an overflow hose on top of transmission behind engine which actually is from the transfer case. Fluid will drip down onto exhaust and eventually catch on fire. Check transfer case for being overfull by taking the top fill plug out. If transmission fluid runs out, I believe the transfer case input shaft seal is shot and needs replaced. Mine caught on fire. I was lucky to get fire out before truck burnt to the ground. If you continue to drive vehicle at have something to put out a fire!!!!

My 89 chevy 2500 won't shift into 3rd gear. The 4wd is also not fully engaging. could the actuator keep my truck from shifting gears in 2wd?


No, the actuator only controls the 2wd to 4wd, you may have a bad trany or the fluid is low, make sure the fluid is full and not brunt and drity. thats what i would do first.

My rear brakes are getting way too hot on my 2000 Chevy Silverado. What could be causing this? I just replaced the brake pads and rotors. The back brakes seem to be seizing up and I can't figure out why.


This year of truck did have issues with rear disc brakes. Quality of pads is extremely critical. Go with the AC Delco pads and rotors to eleviate some of the issue. Make sure that the slide pins are liberally lubricated and move freely or drag will cause excessive heat to occur. Let me know if you need anything else.

No Heat and Overheating in 1999 Chevy Silverado


After replacing the thermostat, you must bleed the air from the cooling system.

To bleed air from the 2.2L and 2.5L engines, remove the plug or sensor on the top of the thermostat housing. Fill the radiator with coolant until the coolant comes out the hole. Since the plug is made out of steel and the thermostat housing is aluminum, it is a good idea to apply an anti-seizing compound or Teflon® tape on the plug threads prior to installation. Install the plug and continue to fill the radiator. This will vent all trapped air from the engine.

Any trapped air in the heating system will have to be displaced by coolant. Once the cooling system is filled, with the radiator cap off, turn of the heater at it's highest setting. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temp. You should see a drop in the coolant level as the air in the heating system is displaced by coolant. Add coolant to the proper level and replace the radiator cap.

Keep a close eye on the coolant level for at least the next couple of weeks. The cooling system is a "closed" system. Any significant decrease in coolant level indicates a problem.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Please take the time to rate this solution.

Drive safe and be warm.
