Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Chevy Silverado Z71 with the 5.3 vortec. it just started leaking coolant at a very rapid pace (i filled the resivior and after about 10 miles it was empty again). i looked in the engine bay and say that the back of the fan shroud on the drivers side was wet. The hose above was dry and i couldnt see any thing else that was wet.

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500. It pings with mild acceleration but does not use oil like with plenum leak. I do have to add coolant once every other month(just to fill the resivior). Any ideas?


Ok here is what I recommend check all of your hoses the coolant runs through for leaks make sure it is not leaking by the thermostat if leaking around it get a new one at a parts store they dont cost very much check the radiator for leaks too sometimes the fins on it can be nicked just rite making the radiator leak then if not found you could possible have cracked heads which might cost a pretty penny to fix but I wish you the best of luck

Need best way to clean coolant from crank in 5.7 chevy


Not good my friend most or all of the coolant should be gone by now. sounds like you might have a hairline crack alowing antifreeze to newly enter your crankcase. Antifreeze in an engine for more than 100 miles turns into a creamy foam that exits your drain plug. and if the engine overheated and stalled out definitly. sorry Man.

Check radiator, hoses, water pump. Also check the oil to make sure that no water is mixing with the oil. But this sounds like a issues with either the radiator, hoses or pump

The temp was always at 180 the last week its gone


Chevy is known to have manifold intake gasket weakness- it may have to be replaced (~$500). That would probably cause slow overheating. You may be leaking coolant through that leak.
Also, the water pump (much cheaper) can break, causing rapid overheating.
If you went to an honest mechanic they should be able to diagnose it using a thermometer.
If there is no smoke from the engine, don't let them convince you it is the engine...they tried that on me.

I would check for a leak or crack. My vehicle did the same thing and I turn off the car filled it with coolant and it was fine after that. However if your putting coolant and it still giving you the same message then check for cracks or leaks. If that does not work I recommend you find yourself a trust worthy mechanic. I would say that every Volvo owner should visit the dealership at least once a year for a full complete diagnostic of there car.

Water in the oil? 96 Chevy Silverado 350 vortec?


Hello, it seems that you have a blown intake gasket. These are made of plastic and over time they crack they usually leak externally instead of internally. Thank you
