What are you calling a freeze plug???do you mean core plug ,the metal plug in the side of the cylinder block /head.queens english please before we send the gunboats.these metal plugs are used to block the holes which have been left to remove the casting sand.Well these only tap in no problen their ,its just that sometimes you have to remove a lot to get at them.Always remove the old one first and take it to parts shop as sizes can vary depending on the manufacturer.What might be specified is not always the case in pratice.production running slow ,quality control is overidden and a larger one fitted.Always remember to refill with 50% antifreeze and thats about it.best of british with getting to it in though.I changed some on a fiat tempra this week what a lousy job ,had to remove the manifolds and water pipe talk about a knuckle banging job

How to change freeze plug out in chevy silverado 93 model


Only one way to change engine or head freeze plugs: hit them with a sharp object to puncture them, then pry them out tilted. You have to have enough room to do this, otherwise you will not be able to tap a new one in it's place!

I have a 1991 chevy lumina with a 3.1 v6 engine. I am trying to replace my freeze plugs but i can't locate them. Where are they located?


Which ones? There are several. There are 2 or 3 freeze plugs on each side of the engine block. There are 2 freeze plugs on the back of the block between the engine and the transmission and there is one in each cylinder head. Freeze plugs can be very difficult to change properly with the engine still in the car unless you vave the correct tools and equipment to get the job done. They can be very tricky getting them in correctly when you DO have the proper tools.

How do you change the freeze plug on 1992 chevy s10


They usually get changed when the engine is rebuilt, unless one freezes, you can get a self tapping sheet metal screw in the center of it, if you can get to it, and then pry it out with a hammer or pry bar, something, clean out the hole, a drop of adhesive, a drop! and knock in the new one.

How do you install a block heater on a chevy aveo 2006?


A block heater is installed in one of the freeze plug ports in your block. Drain your cooling system. Then drill a small hole i the center of the freeze plug and screw a self tapping screw into the hole. You can the use a claw hammer or something similar to pull the freeze plug. Then you just install the block heater in the freeze plug's place. Refill your cooling system and let it get up to full temperature checking carefully for leaks. Please rate my answer.

Turns over but dont start let off key and sputters 3or4 times 1998 Vortec 350 Chevy Z71 4x4


The freeze plug you replaced was due to rust or was it pushed out by freezing temperature? These plugs are not designed to protect the engine block from cracking during freezing temperatures, they are there to remove the sand from the block after casting it. I would drain your system completely and flush out the radiator thouroughly and fill with plain water, then run the engine and see if oil gets in the water, if it does and the plug was out due to freeze, then your block is probably cracked, although you could just have a head gasket leak. Oil pressure (40psi) is higher then water pressure (17psi), so getting oil in the water is always more prominent than the other way around. Flush out the system and let me know if oil returns to the water, hope this helps
