I have a fairly substantial antifreeze leak. I've check all

I have a fairly substantial antifreeze leak. I've check all the hoses and they are fine. The leak is below the water pump but I can't tell if it is that or the intake manifold. Do the intake manifolds typically leak on these engines?

I have the same vibration described through the gas pedal

I have the same vibration described through the gas pedal and steering column but it seems to lesson as the trailblazer warms up or even on much warmer daysJA: How often does the vibration occur, and when did you last have the tires balanced?Customer: this is at idle and pretty much when it starts from a cold start. the dealer just balanced the tires but they did a terrible job. that vibration is quite different but coincidentally I do have that too. I will deal with that one later thoughJA: What year is your Trailblazer?Customer: 2003JA: Are you fixing your Trailblazer yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: at this point I haven't started the repairs. I am trying to pin point it. so far I have considered the torque converter or engine mounts but neither seem to be a dead on solution. I read throttle body cleaning or water pump too but I do not have all of those symptoms eitherJA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: it only has 108K miles and it has been well maintained. I just replaced the plugs last month

I have a 95 Chevy Impala with 5.7 LT1 with opti-spark

I have a 95 Chevy Impala with 5.7 LT1 with opti-spark ignition. If it rains you have to wait a couple of days for it to dry out so it will start. Are there any type of conversions to old style ignitions for this? Any type of water proof ignitions that will work on this? What would you recommend for cap and rotor combinations?

I own a 2013 Chevy Cruze LS with 101,300 miles on it. I

Hello. I own a 2013 Chevy Cruze LS with 101,300 miles on it. I received a change timing belt warning. My Chevy Dealer stated it would be $850 to fix including replacing the timing belt, tensioners, pulley, water pump and labor. Since the mileage is pretty high and the car is not worth too much - is there anyway to just change timing belt and save money by not having them change the pulley, water pump ETC? Looking for a reccomendation on whether to sell or have it fixed even if I plan to sell the car within a month.
