Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
Unless the water pump is seized and locked up, the truck should still start. Replacing the water pump, checking all hoses for leaks, check the radiator for tank leaks and any coolant bypass pipes and/or fittings is a must. GM trucks are known to eat through water pumps, seep coolant at the radiator tanks and leak coolant around the edges of the intake manifold. If the car cranks good but won't start, turn the ignition on and listen for the fuel pump to prime. It will be a high pitched whine. I think the pump on your truck is in-line along the frame on the drivers side near the rear axle. I would replace the water pump and gasket first so you can inspect the other components, then try to start it again before taking further action.
