More than likely it's heater hose going to your heater core.

Freeze plug location front of chevy 5.3 liter engine diag


Hello Richard,

There doesn't appear to be a freeze plug on the front of the block.
They are always located on the lower sides of the block.

If you can see water on the front of the engine do a visual inspection when the motor is off and cold.

Take a rag and dry off any noticeable moisture. Start the engine and let it warm up, carefully check all the areas listed below to see if you can isolate the leak.

The radiator could be leaking and dispersing coolant towards the motor while driving the car. A hose or fitting could be leaking. The intake manifold or thermostat gasket could be leaking. The water pump could be leaking at higher RPM's.

I have a 99 silverado it started leaking water from behind the front right fender well. The ac had been on full blast for about 45 min.There is no water leaking on the inside at all unless behind firewall....


This is a natural occurance with using A/C systems. It is nothing more than condensation and drainage. If it fails to drain it will likely fill the blower box and begin to drain into the cabin or destroy the fan motor.

I have a coolant leak on my 2001 chevrolet silverado - I replaced the water pump - but it still has a coolant leak


You need to pressure test the system to determine exactly where the leak is coming from...Because it could be any hose, pipe, or even the intake manifold gasket...But just pressure test it, and that will save you alot of time and money...

I smell coolant when I turn on the heater in my 2001 Silverado. The heater will not get hot.


Your heater core is clogged, leaking, and/or going bad. If it was anything else in the cooling/heating system, you would not have the antifreeze odor. The heater core is located under the glove box. I hope this helps and good luck.

COOLANT LEAK


On the back side of your motor... On top there is a aluminum coolant hose that has a nylon fitting in it. Make sure it isnt weaping. It will run down the back of your block. The other thing it may be is a frost plug behind your transmission bell housing. This would require pulling the transmission to replace the plug, Check the hose first. Good luck
