4X4???? MAKES A LOT OF DIFFERENCE. THEN WE MAY BE ABLE TO TELL YOU MORE. IF IT IS 4X4 CHECK TRANSFER CASE FLUID, IS IT OVER FULL? DOES IT SMOKE FROM TAIL PIPE? 4X4 IS "VACUUM"ACTUATED!! IF NOT 4X4 IT HAS TO BE LEAKING WHILE DRIVING AND SHOULD SHOW SIGNS UNDER AND ON BACK OF TRUCK!
!994 5.7L V8 Silverado two wheel drive, not a 4x4. Thank you for your reply.

YOUR WELCOM. THEN IT IS LEAKING!!! LOOK ON REAR BUMPER AND TAIL GATE, SEE THEM SPOTS, THAT IS TRANS. FLUID. ONLY OTHER PLACE TO LOOK IS IN THE COOLANT, (RADIATOR) OR RAD. OVERFLOW TANK.

The engine is a small block 350. The truck is spewing transmission fluid after I replaced the gasket and reapplied new sealant. I can't find any cracks and everything looks to me the way other should!
