Leaking passenger Side coolant with truck not running

Asked by Jan 01, 2016 at 10:00 PM about the 1992 Chevrolet C/K 1500 454SS Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced intake manifold along with valve
cover gaskets today. Before I put oil in I
poored coolant in the radiator. Coolant is
dripping somewhere under the motor, I just
can't find it. The truck has not been
cranked at this point. Anyway no oil leak
now that I replaced the gaskets. Just a
new coolant leak on this 1992 Chevy
k1500.

Get under the truck to see if you can pinpoint the leak.

It is difficult. I will try harder to find it. Leaks on to the starter. I follow the drip above transmission.

There is a heater hose fitting on the back of the intake, those like to never seal right or just break off the I take when you try to remove them. I always replace them with a simple barbed fitting and just use a hose clamp. If it isn't that then you might have a freeze plug leaking. These motors are pretty wide open. You should be able to find it
