    Have a look at the freeze plugs on the side of the block and make sure they aren't seeping. If they are, get it dealt with ASAP before one blows on you. They usually build up a bunch of cruft and corrosion shit when they leak.

      Actually, the antifreeze is showing up on the bottom of the lower radiator hose. There's always a drop hanging there. The hose is good (fairly new, too) and there is no sign of a leak around there. Is it possible to have a seeping type leak on a radiator hose, or would it just bust open?

        Might just need to snug the clamp down a little. There might be some crunk between the radiator and the hose, and its seeping around that a little.

            :bump:

            I replaced the ps pump on the '91 GM today, but the new pump is just as noisy as the old one. I thought I did the process right when filling the pump for the first time. Nothing appears to be leaking.

            Would air in the system cause the noise? What can be done to remove the air (anything without buying the specialty tool?)? Could any damage be done if the car is driven this way?

                I used a whole bottle of Lucas when filling the pump today. The car hasn't been driven much since the pump change. I'll see what happens over the next couple days.

                    Got it at CarQuest. The one I put in the '88 GM is doing good. I guess you never know what you can end up with when it comes to this remanufactured stuff.

                      you need to bleed the air out of the system.

                      support front end on jack stands, with the engine off, turn steering wheel back and forth slowly. you will see the air bubbles coming out of the resivoir. when you dont see anymore bubbles you're done.
