Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

On my 1997 K1500 4x4 with a Vortec V8, their is a coolant leak from the front of the engine area. The truck never gets hot or anything, it will leak water when engine is cold or hot. I want to know if this is probably my water pump thats bad? or should I look for other reasons why? any assistance would be appreciated.

If it's water pump, would be leaking from back of water pump pulley, also check both upper and lower coolant hoses that go to water pump, could also be water pump gasket.

Hi, there are 2 common locations for a coolant leak on a vortec engine. The water pump, and the intake gasket. A coolant pressure test may show the leak better. There is a weep hole , or a vent hole, at the bottom of the water pump. This should be checked, as well as the edgesnof the intake, and the front and rear of the intake. Chances are you will find the problem in these areas. Good luck...Coop

Have a belt sqealing and antifreeze in the engine


Hi:
There is a good chance your waterpump bearings failed, and your belt was getting dragged over the drive pulley. Since your engine got hot, the impeller that moves coolant could have broken, so you should investigate that. The coolant could have leaked out the weap hole on the front of the water pump.
