Usually you can get rubber freeze plugs and if the freeze plug that is in the very back is leaking you will see the water coming from between the bellhousing and block - just be sure it isn't leaking above that and just looks like it is coming from the freeze plug between the block and tranny.
I would for sure check with a local mechanic first and let them see if it is just a heater hose or something above it. Usually a freeze plug goes for life.

96gmc Sierra 5.7 vortec won't start OBD codep 0700 have replaced almost every thing as far as fire and fuel pressure is good what you think


Do you know how to test fuel pressure ? With a gauge ? How to test for spark ? Pull a spark plug wire an hold it near ground (metal on the engine ) Have a helper crank the engine . ( turn the key to start position ) Before replacing parts randomly you need to find what system isn't working correctly . Fuel , ignition , engine mechnical (compression ) P0700 is a transmision code
https://www.autocodes.com/p0700_gmc.html Or a bad transmission control module is shorting out the system . Your best bet mite be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

1996 Sonoma freeze plugs i'm leaking water between the transmission and the engine block pouring out


Sucks to be you - just kidding. You will need to remove the transmission from the engine and possibly the flexplate as well to access the freeze plugs. You may consider just having the engine and transmission pulled together and having ALL the freeze plugs replaced. If some are failing, the others are not far behind.

What year motors, can I use to replace my blown 1996 305 vortec t.b.i.? I own a 1996 GMC 1500, sl, ext. cab. Does it have to be a vortec for my current computer to work properly? Will engine mounts, bell...


Untill recently GM didn't change much of anything as far as bolt paterns You could bolt up a 350 from 20 years ago to your transmission and motor mounts. But that is not really what your wanting to do. The question is do you have a "vortec" or is it TBI. The vortec motor says vortec all over it (they were pretty proud of it I guess) The earlier TBI motor, at first glace look just like the old carburetor versions until you take of the air cleaner and find a throttle body instead of a carburetor. The two are not interchangeable as to the electronics, they are way diffract.

1996 gmc k1500 4x4 5.7 vortec motor no start keep


Replace the coolant sensor on the front of the intake manifold.The coolant sensors on this engine does go bad and wont set a check engine light. The sensor will read about -32 to 0 degrees when they do go bad. The computer thinks it is that cold and sends tons of fuel to the engine. If you try to start the engine with the throttle depressed to the floor it puts the fuel system in clear flood mode and wont fire the injectors. Engine will start then and run very rich. The coolant sensor has two wires on it and sometimes you need to replace the wiring pigtail going to it as the sensor can seep coolant into the connector and corrode the terminals. All the parts are available at pepboys and autozone or napa. Good luck

Upgrade 1996 Chevy 4.3L V6 to 5.7L Vortec V8 electric conversion


Different computer for sure, and probably a bunch of sensors, distributor, wires , starter, plug - ins, etc. The only way I would ever attempt that is if i had a whole perts truck to pick off of. You'd be far better off to fix the head gasket, sell it, and buy a truck with a V8 in it already, than to try that.
