the cooling drain plug is under the front of the car just under bumper and under the trim on the driver side but look to see if the cooling is coming from your intake gaskets are a heater hose

You have to get underneath with a work light. Usually leaks from freeze plugs or cracked blocks happen after the outside temp drops below freezing. Those 4.3 L V6 engines are known for blown headgaskets. Do a compression test to be sure. You can also buy leak detector dye from auto parts stores but you would need to use a black light or at least a flourescent light.

SOURCE: water leak at back of block
we had the same problem on my 97 rodeo and thought the same thing but it so happens that there is a water tube that runs under the intake and has an o ring that over time gets hot and ends up dry rotting. which causes it to leak you wont be able to tell unless you remove the intake manifold and see. i had water filling up and running over the back of the motor which cause us to thing is was a freeze plug but in return it was a lot less work. though you might start here before you pull your tranny

There are two on the rear of the block. If leaking, the coolant will be coming from inside the bellhousing. This part you won't like....you need to remove the transmission to get at them. Check carefully that nothing external is leaking before doing anything further.
