Need to replace freeze plugs


You just drive the exixting freeze plug into the hole in the engine block. Once it has been driven all the way into the water jacket, it can be turned sideways and pulled out of the hole with a pair of pliers. Then you put a little black rtv on the edge of the new freeze plug and drive it straight into the hole until the edge of the freexe plug is flush with the surface of the engine block. This is usually done with a freeze plug driver set. SEE PICTURE BELOW

Now how to go about getting to the freeze plug is a whole other story. Each freeze plug presents problems of its own. Some of the can be accessed very easilly. Some of them require that things like starter motors or motor mounts have to be removed to get tho them. Then there are the ones that are located on the back of the engine block which usually require transmission removal to access them.

How to change out freeze plugs


If there isn't a hole in the middle of the freeze plug and pry it out. Then clean the hole in the block, take the new freeze plug and put a coating of RTV cylicone, High Temperature, then get a socket that will just around the inside of the freeze plug and start the plug in the hole very straight and tap the plug in with a hammer. To save your fingers, use an extension on the socket and hit on it.

I have a rusted roof on my ford ranger. Should I fix it with fiberglass or bondo?


IF it's surface rust you should sand down to bare metal, prime then paint. If it's holes and you don't want to weld in new sheet metal patches then go with bondo

How to install a block heater on a chevy trailblazer?


First check and see if there is a pouch located directly beside your battery. If there is a pouch it will contain a plug that is for the factory engine block heater. If there is no plug then you can pursue an aftermarket type.

There are several types. If you want to use a freeze plug block heater, you'll need to have someone help you remove a freeze plug. That usually requires that you remove a lot of the peripheral equipment until you can get a clear access to one of the freeze plugs. Measure the freeze plug then go to an auto parts store and purchase a freeze plug block heater of that specific size. Once you have one that will fit into the hole, you can drill a hole in the freeze plug, then use a prying instrument to remove the old freeze plug. The block heater freeze plug usually goes in with a nut to tighten the freeze plug into the hole.

BTW, you'll get a lot of antifreeze all over when you do this, and plan on taking your time since it will be time consuming.

Hole in freeze plug; water pours back out


Hi, the freeze plug is removed from the outside of the engine, so if it already has a hole in it, put a screw driver in the hole and prize it out, then the new one simply taps back in. As for the size, once you have removed the knackered one, just simply match it up
