A mechanic.

If you don't know the motor size, do yourself a favor and don't touch it.

I got 2001buick century custom with a 3.1 v6 motor the engine is sideways where is the freeze plug located same with the Plymouth intakes

Your question is worded a bit strangely but I will attempt to answer what I think you're asking. You have a 2001 Buick Century with a Chevy 3.1 V6 mounted transverse (side to side). I believe there are four freeze plugs on that engine block, two on either side and visible from underneath. I don't know how easy or difficult they are to get to. If you change them yourself make sure you don't put tap water in the radiator afterward. Get distilled water from the grocery store for about 99 cents a gallon. It is free of minerals. Tap water is loaded with minerals that calcify and end up restricting coolant flow. Use a good antifreeze and if water is needed only use distilled water.

How to change a water pump on a 1999 Buick Century 3100?

the water pump on the 3.1 isnt to hard to change ...
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the drive belt guard.
  4. Loosen the water pump pulley bolts before removing the drive belt. This should help keep the pulley from turning as the bolts are loosened.

99 Buick Century wheels

There's a little rust making the wheel stick to the rotor. Just give it a kick to the tire and it'll break it loose.
