Question about 1993 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

1996 suburban has cracked freezeplug

And a diagram of all the freeze plugs for that engine would be helpful to check the others. Am told it is one where engine must be pulled. If so, then I seek steps required to do just that. Is there another possible solution? Hope so in INDEPENDENCE.

Asuming its v-8 you should have 2 or three on each side of block,just below spark plugs,and one each on the "end-faces"of your heads,(those are the tuffies),but can be done easyer by removing heads.
-the ones on your block are a pain to re-install,it's much easyer if you remove the ex-headers,as far as I can tell ,there are no over-counter tools to make intalation easy.
but a punch and hammer make removal easy.
also a little sealant on holes(NOT silicone)helps too!

Why is there antifreezes leaking out of bell housing on a 1999 dodge Cummings diesel engine, is it a freeze plug or a crack in block

there almost certainly will be a freezeplug in that area , but first make completely sure the coolant isn't leaking higher up and looks like from bell housing , get the area steam cleaned and make sure it's not from the head gasket or another freeze plug , 30 minutes spent doing this could save you time and money dropping the gearbox etc , hope this helps

According to Haynes Manual, for a 4.6 OHC motor, the Freeze plugs are located about 3-4 inches below the cylinder head, under the exhaust manifold. The back plug is 5-6 inches in front of the bell housing on the block. They are pictured on page 2C-21 of the Manual in section 15 Engine Block Cleaning..

Rear freeze plug location

without knowing the year, make or model, ill give a few examples:



sometimes to replace the rearmost freezeplugs, head or engine must be removed. Lots easier to make sure you got proper coolent. Freeze plugs are on the sides as well as the back, and some are actually behind the flyweel, ouch!

Freeze plug above motor mount on a 4.3 g20 van

need to unbolt both motor mounts taking the big center bolt out on both sides..raise the engine with a floor jack enough to acess the faulty freezeplug with a tool from hit the tool with a hammer and push it into the block, then once loosened, remove with a pair of channel lock pliers then replace the new freezeplug carefully..these are a one time install piece so be careful to put it in straight..lower the engine back onto the mounts reinstall the bolts and fill and check everything..

Freeze plup location

Back of engine, eh? The freeze plugs (3, maybe 4 on that back side) will be on the engine block, below the cylinder head, and below where the exhaust manifold mounts up. Look in back of the exhaust manifold for the plugs. Check for indication of leaking, it should be evident. If you have an engine block heater installed in one of the freeze plug holes, that may have loosened and started leaking. If you find a plug that needs replaced, put a stout screwdriver or punch on the freezeplug, not at the center of plug but to the edge, and whack it good. That edge will go in and the other side will stick out- grab with pliers and remove. Clean the area well to remove rust and scale where freezeplug seals in the block. It will be hard, possibly, to put in a new freeze plug with everything in the way. So buy a rubber expansion plug at the parts store-easy to install, just put a wrench on it to tighten. Take your old freezeplug with you to get the right sized expansion plug.
Good luck, hope you find it.

Will the freezeplug make the car run real funny if it pops out

If your Freeze plug pops out the coolant will leak out. The car will overheat and eventually (with in minites) run bad and then it will not run at all. The question is what caused the freeze plug to pop. If the coolant froze inside the engine you may have bigger issues than the freeze plug, There is a strong possibility that you have a crack in the block or heads or in the head gasket. This would affect the engine performance.

Freeze plug near the transmission has jumped out can you install another freezeplug without dropping the transmission

If the defective Freeze Plug is located at the BACK of the engine block, then the repair must include transmission removal. It will also be necessary to remove the engine flexplate/flywheel. More detailed information can be provided when you include Make, Model, and Engine code (size).

My suburban now overheats and there is coolant leeking from the fire down. would that be my heater hose? someone told me it was a blown heads could you help me out.

first make sure you know where the leak is coming from.a common problem in the suburbans is the little plastic Y shaped connecting hose leading to the heater coil,cracks over a period of time.And when it does so it shoots water on to the passenger side of the engine making you believe you have a serious problem.You can check this easily by removing your airfilter housing,this will expose the heater hoses and possibly your problem.If there is no leak there,let me know.I assumed when you said from the fire down you were refering to the firewall,correct?
