SOURCE: Looking for the Oil Plug (Draining) for a GMC 2001 1500 Silverado

the pan under the motor is the oil pan. you can see the oil filter to the left of it (driverside). The plug is in the rear of it facing the back of the truck. On my 6.0l V8 the exuast pipe is rite behind it so when you loosen it have the drip pan ready to catch the oil as it will stream out fast at a wierd angle due to its location. The pan behind it is for the transmission.

Transmissions are drained by removing the pan itself. A new filter is to be installed upon draining. That is why there is no drain pan plug. The Chevy Powerglides were the last American made car with a drain plug in the 1965

Freeze plug location front of chevy 5.3 liter engine diag


Hello Richard,

There doesn't appear to be a freeze plug on the front of the block.
They are always located on the lower sides of the block.

If you can see water on the front of the engine do a visual inspection when the motor is off and cold.

Take a rag and dry off any noticeable moisture. Start the engine and let it warm up, carefully check all the areas listed below to see if you can isolate the leak.

The radiator could be leaking and dispersing coolant towards the motor while driving the car. A hose or fitting could be leaking. The intake manifold or thermostat gasket could be leaking. The water pump could be leaking at higher RPM's.

I got 2001buick century custom with a 3.1 v6 motor the engine is sideways where is the freeze plug located same with the Plymouth intakes


Your question is worded a bit strangely but I will attempt to answer what I think you're asking. You have a 2001 Buick Century with a Chevy 3.1 V6 mounted transverse (side to side). I believe there are four freeze plugs on that engine block, two on either side and visible from underneath. I don't know how easy or difficult they are to get to. If you change them yourself make sure you don't put tap water in the radiator afterward. Get distilled water from the grocery store for about 99 cents a gallon. It is free of minerals. Tap water is loaded with minerals that calcify and end up restricting coolant flow. Use a good antifreeze and if water is needed only use distilled water.

The freeze plug came out and water drained.Now when I fill truck back up with water .It runs out of spark plugs holes.


what exactly caused the freeze plug to come out if it froze hard enough to push out freeze plug then it most likely has caused other damage the only way water is coming out of plug holes is the water is entering the cylinders i suspect you either have a cracked cylinder head or a cracked cylinder wall i have seen this on one other engine were it froze and bursted the cylinder wall i reccomend removing cylinder head for further inspection

Replaceing freeze plugs in the back of a side motor in a 2001 chevy malibu


1) Drain all coolant from the engine/radiator.
2) Drill a hole in the old plug to allow you to thread a lag bolt, which will then be used to pull the old plug out. Or use whatever means you can to remove the old freeze plug.
3) Thoroughly clean the hole with a wire brush attached to a drill motor.
4) Apply sealant to new freeze plug and locate into the hole.
5) Tamp the plug into the hole, flush with the block, with a hammer.
6) Refill radiator with coolant.
7) Check for leaks.

This isn't going to be easy with the engine in the car, but it can be done.
