I have antifreeze coolant leaking from the rear of my engine and want to gain excess to my rear freeze plugs. Do I pull my transmission to change the rear freeze plugs on the 1989 crown Victoria?


Yes, you have to pull the transmission. But look it over closely. Most likely the coolant is coming from somewhere else. I have never seen or replaced a bad freeze plug back there. Water can't get to them to rust them out from the outside in. Only if you use water only to cool the engine. Heater hoses and the intake manifold gaskets can cause a leak in this area.

Replacing freeze plugs on Madza 929 Do you have to take the head off to get to some of them ?


if you ever have this issue where you don't believe them. they have shop manuals and can show you the parts in the motor. you have the 6 cylinder and i don't have the shop manual to see how they come apart. most engines you don't need to pull the heads off. yours could be different. there should be freeze plugs around the block that rust out and are a pain to change. did they pull the motor to change those? what year is it and i am guessing you live where they salt the roads

How to change freeze plugs on 2001 mercury mountnier with a 302 engine


This is a tuff freeze plug to get to. If the plug is fully exposed you can punch a hole it and pry it out with a screw driver. Once out you can replace it with an expandable rubber freeze plug to get the job done in the car. If not this may require pulling the drive train down to get at it or pull the engine to make the repair. Feel the freeze plug with your fingers to determine the best route.

How many freeze plugs are on a 2000 blazer 4.3 vortec


The freeze plugs are spaced out in a straight line along each side of the block. If you see others at the same height in front or behind where the motor mount is, then yes it probably is a freeze plug.

Put a jack under the engine with a block of wood between the oil pan and the jack head. Raise it slightly to remove the motor mount through bolt, then remove the mount from the engine block. Now you should be able to replace the plug. Use a punch to drive in one side, then grip with pliers and pull it out. Clean the recess before installing new plug. Auto stores stock them in all dimensions, or take your old one in for matching up. The rubber expansion plugs work well, too, and easier to install.

1992 chev s10 , 2.8 v6 , leaking freeze plug


If the welsh plug is in a position where by removing several items ( manifold --engine mount etc and you can get enough space to swing a hammer to install the new plug. then it can be done with difficulty. If the plug faces the fire wall then unfortunately the motor has to be pulled . The only advantage is that it is just not the one plug because if one is rusted out the rest will not be far behind so it is an opportunity to do the lot.. IT is a good reason to always ensure that the coolant conditioner is always changed regularly and kept up to percentage required.

87chevyG30 5.7lV8 core plug removed w/out taking out engine?


You should not have to pull the motor to replace any of the freeze plugs, except the 2 on back of engine block witch requires engine removel or trans. removel. Depending on witch one thats leaking. There are 3 on each side, and 2 on the rear of engine, most common one to leak is the one above the starter, witch requires starter removel, there is one in the middle thats you have to jack up engine to remove engine mount to get too. There all located below exhaust manafold on each side. They are a bear to chg. but can be done without engine removel.
