i got this engine is out of a 94 g20 van. its a 5.7 and looks really nice in the elky. the picture is on the pass side just in front of the starter and i noticed coolant leaking on to the exhaust. im afraid to clean it bc im afraid of what i may find. the driver side has a bolt in this spot. anyone ever encounter this? a side note: i just bypassed my heater core b/c i could never get pressure in the top rad hose and would smell coolant when i used the heater. well now i have been able to get pressure and i have found this :neutral:

Jess,thats a real odd place for a coolant leak,there is a freeze plug behind the starter,that you cant see unless you remove the starter,if its leaking there it can run along the lip of the pan ,it just looks to be a build up in that area,kinda strange ! pull the starter and check the freeze plug ! :texas:

Should have a threaded plug on the right side too. Can't tell much from your picture, almost looks like someone brazed the hole. Bad photo or more likely, my eyesight.
