SOURCE: rusty anti freeze came pouring under my 2005 dodge caravan

I hope you're not driving it...They're called freeze plugs, and they are for when you have added too much water (not enough anti-freeze) to the system and it gets too cold, the freeze plug should pop out before the block cracks (very expensive). The extra water content also helps the plug to rust. They're relatively cheap, and not too hard to replace (if you can get to it without pulling the engine). I'm not sure about the Dodge, but most plugs are a press fit, meaning you simply put the plug up to the hole (make sure the old plug is out), take a small block of wood to evenly distribute the force to push the new plug in, and tap it in with a hammer until it is flush with the block. And make sure to fill your radiator with a 50/50 solution of water and anti-freeze...

Best way to determine that is to remove the leaking one and bring it with you to the parts store and match it up. If the one you need to replace is in an impossible location, there are rubber replacement plugs available that don't need to be driven in. If it's easily accessible, I always use brass marine replacements as they NEVER rust. To remove the old plug, put a wide blade screwdriver inside one edge and hit it with a hammer. The plug will turn sideways and you can then pull it out with pliers.

How to change a freeze plug in 1988 dodge d150 with a 318


There are freeze plugs in the back of the cylinder heads and in the back of the block requiring the transmission to be removed or the engine to be removed for access. A big, nasty job at best. Here is a picture of the front of the engine with brass plugs; the rear has the same number in similar locations:
aemop318rlb.jpg
Dorman makes copper plugs that expand with a wrench for tight places [see link to Amazon for an example; you may need different sizes]; they also make rubber ones that don't last. The copper ones with the acorn nut won't work next to the starter on the side of the block.

A major problem is getting the old plugs out of the back of the heads with little clearance to the fire wall, but the real problem ones are hidden by the transmission bell housing.

Is there "Freeze Plugs" on a 1994 Mercury?


Virtually all engine blocks have freeze plugs. They serve two purposes:
  1. They are designed to burst out of the block in case the engine coolant freezes, preventing a cracked block.
  2. They allow for a more thorough cleaning of the engine block when the block is "tanked" during rebuild/remanufacture.
One thing to consider...what weight of motor oil are you using during the bitter cold months? Heavier weight oils get very thick on the cold mornings. This makes cranking harder and increases engine wear. Check with a local dealer and see if the manufacturer has any suggestions for a thinner oil in the cold months to make starting/running easier.

I have a 1975 winnebago from dodge Someone messed with the spark plug wires I need the fireing order and how the wires go on the cap Dodge winnebago 1975 v8


You could have 3 different engines in that rig.
The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 for most Dodge 8 cyl engines.
And the odd cylinders are on the driver side.
The small block engines ( 318 ) have the distributor in the back, and the big block engines ( 360 440 ) are in the front.
The rotor on the big blocks turn counterclockwise. The dist cap is usaully stamped with cyl 1 as a starting point.

I have a 2002 Dodge Neon 4 cylinder, The other night it froze because i didnt have anitfreeze in it The next morning i tried to start it and i heard a little knocking noise it sounded like it was close to...


When it 'thawed out' did you see water leaking out from the sides of the engine on the bottom? Is there spark at the plug wires? If it truly was frozen due to no antifreeze, it should have leaked out of the 'freeze plugs' which were designed to alleviate the potential damage that would be caused if the water in the engine froze-insteading of cracking the block, the freeze plugs give the expanding ice a place to go (outside the engine) so that the engine is not destroyed. This brings us back to the question- Is there spark at the plugs? Did it actually leak fluid, or ice, from the freeze plugs? Check to see if there is spark, with the starting fluid, if it had spark it should have run long enough to know it should be alright. Remember, it has to have anrifreeze in it and if the freeze plugs are damaged, they have to be fixed first.

Hi, just got advice from u, but local know it all said something about freeze plugs, what are they?


freeze plugs are brass shallow cup like inserts-about 1 inch wide that are pressed into the side of the block a v-8 would have about 3 on each side and as the name freeze-out plug suggests back when water was used in engine if water froze the plug would pop instead of water/ice cracking block - their on the side of the engine block if one is leaking replace will see anti-freeze/water weeping or dripping on side of block by plug

Where are the freee plugs located on a 2002 dodge stratus?


Both sides, front, and back of the block. It's not a job to be taken lightly. If by any chance you can happen to see one. Look for an indentation on the engine block under the exhaust manifold. Looks king of like the inside of a baby food jar lid. Since you have a transverse (sideways) engine. Front and back are relative, meaning...the front of the engine is on the passenger's side, and the back of the engine (driver's side) is mated to the transmission. If you are able to locate the plug(s) that is/are leaking and remove it/them. They can be replaced with expansion freeze plugs that go in the hole and tighten with a wrench. The function of the freeze plug is to release pressure to from freezing. If an improper coolant mixture is in the engine and the coolant (antifreeze) happens to freeze. The plug pops out to diminish the chances of the engine block cracking. They are however prone to rust under certain circumstances.

I hope this helped.

Check out your freeze plugs. They are thin metal cups that press fit into the side of the block. Use a mirror and a light to inspect while the engine is running.
