You now have a cracked engine block,no amount of sealer will cure this.
Only a new engine will do,
Usually it is futile to even try repair even with the engine removed and dismantled,although many have tried.
Good luck

I have a 92 mustang lx 5.0. it recently froze due to weather conditions. iv been running warm water through it but i have water running out the bottom rear of engine. is this a freeze plug issue? if so i...

How is it possible that the car froze??
Do you live in a place that it doesn't freeze often?
Yes, you have issues.
First drain all the coolant and get the right mix.
Not only should you do this for freezing conditions, but for hot conditions as well.
You could have a blown freeze plug.
AND you could have a cracked block!
I'd have it pressure tested to make sure.

Turns over but dont start let off key and sputters 3or4 times 1998 Vortec 350 Chevy Z71 4x4

The freeze plug you replaced was due to rust or was it pushed out by freezing temperature? These plugs are not designed to protect the engine block from cracking during freezing temperatures, they are there to remove the sand from the block after casting it. I would drain your system completely and flush out the radiator thouroughly and fill with plain water, then run the engine and see if oil gets in the water, if it does and the plug was out due to freeze, then your block is probably cracked, although you could just have a head gasket leak. Oil pressure (40psi) is higher then water pressure (17psi), so getting oil in the water is always more prominent than the other way around. Flush out the system and let me know if oil returns to the water, hope this helps

i would try to flush the cooling system completely
if I had to guess someone put stop leak in it when the freeze plug started leaking
also check the oil to make sure there is no water in the oil
