You have many frost plugs. Some remove from block with an allen wrench, some use a bolt that holds it in, and some are compressed in. Depends on the type of frost plug. If pressed in, use a seal puller or screwdriver/punch with small hammer and pry out. Just don't knock plug into block.

How do you replace the freeze plug that's under the motor mount 09 1994 F250 7.5

Well, I own a 7.5 powered F-250 but I can't remember that particular freeze plug. When you can't pull the motor, you can at least take the rear tranny mount loose and loosen the engine mounts,put a flat board under it so no dents fron the jack you'll be using. You might even have to loosen exhaust bolts,I dunno, and get some space.
THEN what I have done is pry out the bad freeze plug(punch a hole in the center if you can) and then go to NAPA and get an aftermarket bolt-in type plug. I use the rubber EXPANSION type,but I think they make brass ones too.
Check them out! don-ohio

How many freeze plugs are on a 2000 blazer 4.3 vortec

The freeze plugs are spaced out in a straight line along each side of the block. If you see others at the same height in front or behind where the motor mount is, then yes it probably is a freeze plug.

Put a jack under the engine with a block of wood between the oil pan and the jack head. Raise it slightly to remove the motor mount through bolt, then remove the mount from the engine block. Now you should be able to replace the plug. Use a punch to drive in one side, then grip with pliers and pull it out. Clean the recess before installing new plug. Auto stores stock them in all dimensions, or take your old one in for matching up. The rubber expansion plugs work well, too, and easier to install.

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer and two of the freeze plugs popped out during a freeze. One we were able to get to pretty easily--the other one is somewhere in the middle and looks difficult to get to. Will I...

some times there behind motor mounts and other things you can purchase expadable rubber freeze plugs you might have to lift the motor a little but you shouldn't have to remove the motor unless you popped a freeze plug between the motor and transmision hope this helps

I need steps on how to replace a motor for a 2001 ford taurus ses

ooo a fun ford project...well first remove battery, then the hood, go trough and remove all plug ins and any wire attatchments that are attached to the motor, next go through andremove any fuel, power steering, coolant, and A/C lines. the fuel and A/C lines require a special tool, remove the bolts from the exaust flanges underneath the car. take out bellhousing bolts remove the inspection plate from the transmission, remove the tourque converter bolts, remove motor mount bolts, put floor jack under tranny to support it then using a engine hoist (i love my skidsteer) jimmy the motor free from the tranny and slowly pull it out the top, you might have to jack the tranny up and down to allow for clearance for the engine. and of course wen you put the new one in... do all this fun ford stuff backwards
