April is correct. The freeze plugs are on engine block about midway up the block. If any are leaking, coolant will leak or gush outside of engine.

4 posts now.
this one finally says 4 banger, so
its the 2.2L engine,,! (my crystal ball out)
no, the freeze plugs go bad and leak Engine coolant all over the driveway , since you never said the word LEAK
then forget that. freeze plugs /core plugs.

ALL 2.2L engines, (this one is a Holden engine, X22SE, true name)
has a twin cam, called DOHC, engine as seen below.
it has a belt driving cam, as many do.,.. no chain.... like better engines have.
if you skip the 60,000 mile service (new belt) it slips
and when it slips you bend the head valves $$$$$$$
so do you skip service or not./?
if yes bingo.

the belt fits on those 2 large cam cogs, belt off here.
never ignore cam belts, or you need deep pocket$
a new head is like $500
and same labor. (prices vary by location on earth)

Water gushin from passenger side

I was unable to locate a block graph but did find some good depictions on video" for your engine


No... unless the soft plugs were corroded... you can probably get by replacing what is leaking.

If the plug was corroded ... it would be wise to replace all yje plugs. Rock Auto parts (kit) shows 6 block and 4 head sized plugs for your engine.

The are rubber plugs which can be used... bolted in turned with wrench to tighten... see url (link) and picture below.

Metalic SOFT PLUG unit installation can be facilitated by freezing the plugs and warming the engine block... (heating tool noted below). Also see the tool set for removing them... a MUST working in VERY TIGHT spaces,

Hope this helps.

Could freeze plugs cause my Lincoln navigator 5.4l engaging leak water from back of engine and oil from the side of engine

Yes, that is a possibility. I have a 4-liter V-6 in my 1993 Ford and it had two freeze plugs that had rusted and were leaking. It was easy enough to replace them because they were on the side of the block but I learned there are two freeze plugs hidden under the transmission bell housing. It they are leaking, antifreeze would be dripping off the back of the engine.

Freeze plugs should not cause oil leaks as they are a safety device for the water jacket.

Pictorial of 1997 Volvo 2.4 ( B 5254 T ) engine showing freeze plug locations

There are freeze plugs on the back of the head and the block too. I suggest you replace then all since they have aged the same. Replacing one at a time will only do a patch job and you'll never know when the next freeze plug will start to leak.

Why would my engine block be spewing water out under neath next to the oil filter


On an engine block there are 'Freeze plugs'. The reason for freeze plugs is to allow for expansion (E.G.--when water freezes it expands). If water does get cold enough or does not have enough antifreeze in the system the water will expand and 'pop' a freeze plug to prevent the engine block or heads from cracking. However--these plugs can fail (not cold related) causing a leak in the cooling system. Thus water circulates through the block and heads to provide cooling (water pump-radiator-heater core). Also--water pumps when they go bad have a hole that 'pops' and leaks to let you know the water pump needs to be replaced. Therefore--Location is key.

I hope this helps.

Freeze plug

The passenger side of the engine is also where the water pump sits.
The freeze plugs would be along the block between the engine and the radiator and between the engine and the firewall.
The water pump would be behind the serpentine belt or the timing cover depending on which engine you have.

Leaking oil out think its the freeze plugs

"freeze plugs" actually are installed in a block to seal off the holes where the stuffing that is put into the casting gets removed. The stuffing is what forms the water jackets that cool the engine.
That said, there is no way a freeze plug can ever leak oil because they only cover water passages.
Keep looking and you will find the actual leak source!!

Water leak and water in oil

You are probably correct -- it's a blown head gasket.

Water leaking from a freeze plug and water in the oil pan in a 283 small block chevy engine

If you have a bad or leaky freeze plug, also known as soft plugs, it needs to be replaced. Your brass plugs are the best, and in some hard to get to places there are rubber plugs that can be adjusted to fix the problem. But if you have oil in the oil pan, assuming no one put water in the engine. You probably overheated the engine enough to acquire a cracked head gasket. Normaly that's the problem, could be a cracked head also, but more than likely a gasket. If you decide to remove the heads and replace the gaskets, good idea to have the heads resurfaced. (recommended)
