You can turn a wing nut that is usually attached to the radiators bowl. If this is stuck or you do not want to take a chance on messing something up all you have to do is take off the bottom radiator hose and it will all flow out. Make sure you do this after the vehicle has not been running for aan hour or so.

There is no radiator drain plug on these trucks, you have to remove the lower radiator hose to drain coolant.

What transmission did Chevy use for the 1997 1500 truck with a 350 engine?


Most likely a 4L60E, unless it is a Heavy Half, or a 4x4, in which case it would be the 4L80E.

Repair maual for 1997 1500 Z71 pickup with 350 vortex and 4x4


I have a 1997 chevy 1500 350 4x4. My problem is that I can not get my headlights to work. I have checked the fuses inside the truck and under the hood. They are all good. My side markers work, my tail lights works, and even my day time running lights work. The only thing that doesnt work is the headlights. If I turn my head lights on my day time running lights turn off. Does any one have an idea of what could be causing this.

Turns over but dont start let off key and sputters 3or4 times 1998 Vortec 350 Chevy Z71 4x4


The freeze plug you replaced was due to rust or was it pushed out by freezing temperature? These plugs are not designed to protect the engine block from cracking during freezing temperatures, they are there to remove the sand from the block after casting it. I would drain your system completely and flush out the radiator thouroughly and fill with plain water, then run the engine and see if oil gets in the water, if it does and the plug was out due to freeze, then your block is probably cracked, although you could just have a head gasket leak. Oil pressure (40psi) is higher then water pressure (17psi), so getting oil in the water is always more prominent than the other way around. Flush out the system and let me know if oil returns to the water, hope this helps

Oil in the water (radiator) 1996 Vortec 350 Chevy Z71 4x4


i would try to flush the cooling system completely
if I had to guess someone put stop leak in it when the freeze plug started leaking
also check the oil to make sure there is no water in the oil

O2 sensor problem


I have a 97 gmc sierra .This truck is the same as the chevy ok.Its a 350 5.7 liter 4x4 Z71.I took it to auto zone which was my first mistake.They put it the scanner and said bad O2 sensor.Ok so which one is it i said.They dont know.Well there four (4) O2 sensors in this truck i hope you know that.I had to replace all four of them before i had to take it to a real shop.It seems the fuel pump i replaced a week earlier with an auto zone fuel pump was bad.Ive changed my feul pump 4 times now and have 235000 miles on still running.You need to get your fuel pressure checked.It should be 65 psi to start it and 55 psi to run it.If the pressures are good it could be a different O2 sensor or maybe the mass air flow senor.My last option would be the fuel pressure regulator because it seems to be a waste of time and money.I would get that fuel pressue checked first.Good luck.
