You need to pressure test the system to determine exactly where the leak is coming from...Because it could be any hose, pipe, or even the intake manifold gasket...But just pressure test it, and that will save you alot of time and money...

Freeze plug location front of chevy 5.3 liter engine diag


Hello Richard,

There doesn't appear to be a freeze plug on the front of the block.
They are always located on the lower sides of the block.

If you can see water on the front of the engine do a visual inspection when the motor is off and cold.

Take a rag and dry off any noticeable moisture. Start the engine and let it warm up, carefully check all the areas listed below to see if you can isolate the leak.

The radiator could be leaking and dispersing coolant towards the motor while driving the car. A hose or fitting could be leaking. The intake manifold or thermostat gasket could be leaking. The water pump could be leaking at higher RPM's.

Replacing water pump on 2001 chevy impala


That is good bet but you should see some spotting from coolant under the car. There is a weep hole on the water pump and what happens with age is that the bushing in the pump on the shaft gets worn and coolant starts to drip out.

Coolant leaking from under engine 97 5.7l silverado


It is most likely the water pump, the air flow under the engine causes the coolant to go back under the truck. Fell under the front of the water pump for moisture or a slimy liquid.

Coolant leaking from bottom of water pump on 99 chevy 5.3 ltr


if coolant is coming from the bottom of your pump then the bearing and seal are going bad it is time to replace it . you can try flushing your heater core . take the hoses off and using a garden hose flush water through in both directions one at a time .
