SOURCE: How much would it cost to replace the freeze plugs

You would need to provide more information for an exact estimate such as auto or manual trans, trans model and engine size. I'll assume it's the most popular 4.0L with an auto trans and 4x4. The book time to remove the transmission (depends on which labor book) is 5.8 hours plus .3 flywheel removal plus approx .5 to replace the plugs. The cooling system will have to be purged of air .8 and the coolant should be replaced. Multiply 7.4 hours times the shop rate example: $99.00 per hour would be approx. $740.00 in labor plus parts. Freeze plugs are cheap and coolant will be approx. $25. Good luck :o)

Where is the freeze plug located


The engine in your Ford Explorer has freeze plugs, also called expansion plugs, mounted in the sides of the block. Freeze plugs are supposed to protect the engine block if the water in the engine freezes -- the expanded water is supposed to push out the freeze plug, although that doesn't always happen. Freeze plugs are made of thin steel compared to the engine block, and even with an anti-freeze mixture the plugs can rust out and require replacement.

Where are the freeze plugs located on a 1998 Ford Expedition with a 5.4L ?


There are plugs on both the driver's and passenger's side of the engine block and both cylinder heads [outboard side of each head]. There are also several plugs located in the rear of the block. The transmission must be removed to access these rear plugs. You should have changed your antifreeze more often!

Loosing fluid on top rear of engine.


check your hoses where the heater core comes out of. If the clamps are old replace them. Check around your intake manafold and your heads. Check your dipstick for a milky substance at the bottum of the stick. Is your thermostat in the rear of the engine. Check this too. Also if you just replaced any freeze plugs check all of them even the ones you just replaced. They may not be in correctly.
