Could be the intake manfold, the big block that the carborator sets on. It is common for these to start leaking on this engine. Hopefully it is just a heater hose leeaking. Changing the intake could be expensive. If it is the intake, it will cause the jimmy to overheat eventually. look between the intake and were it bolts down to the engine aroung the area you see the water coming from.

I want to change the starter on a 1997 gmc jimmy


I don't want to discourage you, however; your particular vehicle takes a lot of patience to change the starter. At first observation it would appear to be a relatively simple procedure.

Most often times, the passenger's side motor mount has to be unbolted, and that side of the engine lifted, or the exhaust dropped.

The starter unbolts easily enough, and with a little twisting the wires can be removed. But getting the starter to drop down is like playing tetris in the dark.

Will not start after driving 1997 gmc jimmy


Sounds like you want to check for a vacuum leak at the intake manifold gaskets. This can easily be done with a can of WD-40. Spray the oil around the gasket areas, and, on all vacuum lines.P.S. do this with the engine running. I'm sure you'll hear a stumble or slowing of the engine, if you do concentrate the spray until you're able to pinpoint the leak. Thanks, Dana

I have a 1997 gimming 4.3


I would check for intake gasket leaks, usually in the back where it is hard to see. You can use a mirror. Alot of the time there will be water coming from it also. Real common problem for that engine.

A bad leek on the back of my block


Usually they leak from the oring at the back of the water pump but the water runs in the middle of the V of the block and goes at the back. If you've got the manifolf off you should be able to locate the middle pipe and see if it's corroded or leaking. Could be as well the frost plugs at the back of the heads??
I think you should be not too far away from seeing the leak if you've already got your manifold out. Good luck.
