    Yes there is 2 I believe. But before you condemn the freeze plugs make sure that is what it is. These engine have been known to leak at the rear of the head gasket. Good Luck to you.

    It could be a possible dirty idle control valve.

    First,and formost,DO NOT USE DEX-COOL!!!! If you do a search on line there are several lawsuits aginst
    GM for the damages that this type of coolant causes. I just went through the same issues and repairs.
    on my 2001 2.2L chevy S-10
    and by the looks of things they are gonna continue.I think I lost the freeze plugs in front of the transmission. So now I'm gonna need to drop my transmission to get to them.I already took 2 weeks on a blown head gasket and every gasket up from there. OH what fun that was.
