On the s10 pick ups, they commonly had a 2.2 liter engine. that engine is suspect to external head gasket failures. it is very obvious once seen. if you have the 4.3 liter..they are suspect to the intake manifold gaskets leaking...hope this helps

SOURCE: 95 850 Coolanl leak

The turbo is cooled by engine coolant and possibly one of the cooling hoses have failed - it's pretty difficult to see back there so you'll need a mirror and a flashlight.

SOURCE: leaking coolant from rear of engine is there a

No, that would probably be a freeze plug on the back of the block if the coolant is coming out between transmission bell housing and engine.

Could my rear auxiliary heater core have a blockage?

It is not a blockage if coolant is leaking. Determine if the core itself is leaking or a loose hose clamp. Repair as necessary. Don't ignore it since running the engine pressurizes the hoses and will push out coolant causing engine overheating.

Antifreeze leaking

why not find source>?/???? is this a stick or A/T?
a hot engine, has 12 psi AF coolant pressure.
and any leak is easy to find.
it will even squirt at that large pressure if bad.
i cant be more help due to you not stating which engine option.
8v or 16valves.

Coolant leak top rear of engine near throttle body 1996 3.4 lumina vpv

Most of the time when I see coolant leaking at the rear/top of the 3400 engine, beneath the throttle plate area, it's usually coming from the intake gaskets. There is a coolant cross-over passage at the rear of both heads and as time passes the gasket will sometimes split along the sides of this passage and coolant will begin to leak out. It can be tough to see clearly whats going on in this area well enough to pinpoint the exact source of the leak so it may take a bit of time to find it. Often with an intake gasket leak the coolant will puddle on top of the block then drip down the rear side of the engine and drip off of the pan or transmission bell housing. Hope this helps you find your problem!

Was told it is freeze plug and transmission has to come out to fix it.

Commonly known as a frost plug / welch plug, If its the rear one then yes the trans has to come out. make sure the garage fits a brass one as they do not corrode.

What are signs of of bad intake gauset on a 99 chevy blazer

depends on whether its leaking coolant or air, since both run through intake. if leaking coolant, you will see coolant leaking from either the front or rear of the intake itself. it can also leak into the engine, causing coolant to mix with the oil. if its leaking air, usually a small leak will present more when the engine is cold, with rough running or high idle. a large leak will run rough all the time, but should be able to hear air hissing if large enough. a vacuum leak from the intake will sometimes present as a check engine light, with codes p0171 and/or p0172, depending on whether the leak is on one side or both.

Water leaking

If the leak is in the rear of the engine, there are several things that can cause the leak. Intake manifold gasket, heater hoses, heater core.........
If this is a small leak, you might try a can of Bars Leak. It should stop any component coolant leak, however, it will not cure a heater hose coolant leak.
If you try the bars leak, give it 50 to 100 miles to stop the leak.
If it is a large coolant leak, it is best to have the leak identified and repaired, much cheaper in the long run if you are planning on keeping the car.
Let me know.
