SOURCE: How to replace rear freeze plug
You will have to pull the trans to get to the freeze plug. Take a punch and knock one side of the plug in then pull the rest of the plug out with plires.Take sand paper and clean the hole, Apply permatex sealant around the new plug, and drive it in with a socket that will just fit inside the freeze plug. You should replace them both while you are there. Good Luck

Did you put a new cap on the radiator? Small as it seems, if it does not provide an adequate seal on the radiator, than the system does not get pressurized, thus keeping the boiling point around 212 deg. your engine gets way hotter than than normally. When sealed right, the pressurized system raises the boiling point to close to 300. thats how is works. If thats not it,(assuming it is the last thing replaced) than you might have either a cracked head/ head gasket/ valve guides, cooling ports, basic large dollar items. Lets hope for your sake the problem is still in the cooling system, before you look at the motor. If you take out the sparkplugs, you'll be able to tell real quick, rusty, burnt whitish-orange looking condition. Good luck

you could have vacumm problems making it seem like the timing is off, but the other guys are right on the timing!!!! it could be throw-body problems, like crack manifold problems. This year has thhis type of problem sometime. Try spraying WD-40 around the vacuum hoses, & manifold to see if the motor changes rpm????

Is it coming from the top, Can you see? Did the car freeze or overheat lately? If not, it is not a freeze plug. It is a coolant line running to the rear of the engine, it has an O-ring gasket that has gone, It is real easy to fix, but you have to take the intake off to get to it. Buy the gasket kit, the seals/O-rings are off the shelf sizes, nothing special, and you will need a schematic of the engine so you can see where you are going. Check it out.
