will do, im going to try go hunting for it today after I do an oil change if the weather holds out. A Friend gave me a worse case sinario of some plug in the engine rotting out and that would require removing the engine (cheap fix, just labor intensive). But ill let you know how it goes other wise I have a White Sport I got my eye on in town lol

Check the back of the intake manifold. There are water jackets on the backside of the heads. On some motors, they cross over in the front on others, in the rear. I don't remember where they cross over on the 318's or the 360's. It's a fairly easy fix. Just gotta pull the intake manifold and throw new gaskets in. A day long job if you know what you're doing.

well i crawled under it and it is curently looking like my budy is right. On the back of the engine is freeze discs (or something like that) and so far it looks to be originating from there -.- Im going to have a friend look at it and figure out what should be done. Other wise ill be looking for a new truck since thats alot of money to dump into this truck (might as well dump a different motor into it)
