I have a 1999 Chevy Malibu LS, with the 3.1L V6 motor. I live in Wisconsin so the car sees very cold winters each year. Just recently I have coolant (dexcool) leaking somewhere out of the left-hand side (coolant reservoir side) of the motor. It is NOT leaking from the reservoir, radiator, or lower intake gasket). I know it is not the lower intake gasket because I had that replaced about 2 years ago already. The leak appears to be dripping off the left side of the engine block. What do you guys think? If you can come up with any diagrams that would be great…it is just impossible to get a good look at the left side of the block with the water pump housing and everything else in the way. The Hanes manual doesn’t give a good diagram of it either. Your help is greatly appreciated!
