    Default noticed a small small coolant leak

    Under the paasenger side front of the engine uneder the cyl. Head
    I really don't want to do a head job but would my 4.3 v6 5 speed swap with a decent v8 cause for me fuel is out the window my engine lost power
    And I think its the valves
    All input would be nice

    Sounds like the Head gasket went. and yes a V8 will drop right in im assuming that you are talking about the 95 that your name is? if so then any V-8 (5.0L and 5.7L) will bolt right in from a 1992-1995 with out any trouble.

    So even without creamy oil it can still leak?

    yep external head gasket leaks are more common in my experience.

    Are you sure it isn't the Intake manifold gasket leaking and running down the seam? I've replaced a lot more intake gaskets than head gaskets on those.
    Good Luck and God Bless
