Asked by Jan 01, 2016 at 02:36 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet Blazer 4 Door LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm having an issue with my blazer
overheating.  I am leaking coolant but can't
figure out where from.  I have replaced the
thermostat,  before realizing there was a
leak.  I found one leak around the quick
connect into the radiator from transmission
cooling line.  Ran fine for a while.  Started
leaking again from an unknown location.

You can do the pressure test yourself. It's just a matter of putting the tester on the radiator cap neck and pumping it up. Have you checked the intake manifold. It could be leaking coolant from there. HTH. -Jim
