Hole in bottom of engine?

1995 k1500 suburban. chevy 350 engine The guy I want to buy this truck from says his mechanic told him there is a small hole in the bottom of the engine, but I can't seem to find anything to prove this. No leaks and it sounds fine. I know the manifold gasket needs to be replaced but thats all I have found so far... Any idea what he might have meant?

Might have been a dishonest mechanic or just a simple error.
Make sure oil level is good, run engine until warm, park on newspaper or other absorbent surface. check it next day. if you find oil spot(s), clean the engine really well and repeat test, you should find where the oil is leaking from.

Nothing goes in that hole. If coolant is leaking from that hole, it means the shaft seal on the water pump is bad. The only fix is to change the water pump.

1995 chevy k1500 misfire and no start

The temperature sensor (the 2-wire one for the computer) are problematic on these trucks. Another problem area that commonly arises are the ground wires located on the thermostat housing bolt; they are often rotted out or broken, and this electrical connection is CRITICAL for proper engine operation. Make sure you address these two things before you shotgun any more parts at your truck. Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

Why is the back plate for my 1995 Chevy K1500 stepside cost $350.00? years before and after are around $30 bucks. What's up with this?

Because GM likes to change things for no reason at all. The 305 and 350 engines in the 80's and 90's have three different rear main seals. No reason at all, same transmissions and engines, even same engine codes, but different seals. They do this all the time and this is why, among other reasons, I don't buy or own GM or Chrysler vehicles.

I have a 1995 Chevy Suburban K1500 with a 350 4x4, when I start it runs good. When I put it in gear and let idle it wants to die for the first couple or miles and then it's fine. I have changed the plugs,...

I would look at the timing belt if it's never been replaced. Sounds like it is having issues under a load or the tensioner isn't working properly. Another possible issue could be a vacum component that isn't functioning properly until the engine and transmission get wormed up.

How do you check the oil level in the rear axle of a 1995 GMC K1500 Suburban? I can find no plug or inspection port.

there is a small plug on the passenger side of the diff near the top, you open it with a 3/8" ratchet. stick your pinky finger in, if you can touch fluid within a half inch of the hole the fluid is ok.
