SOURCE: Freeze Plugs
Freeze plugs are generally pried out and pounded in, although some are available that seal by squeezing a rubber piece between washers. Use 2 wrenches to tighten these. All generally available at auto parts stores.
The real problem is often getting to the leaking freeze plug. Some are on the lower sides of the block with plumbing and accessories blocking access. There are also some on the rear surface of the block, which usually require separating the transmission from the engine to replace.

It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.

What's probably happening is the weep hole on the water pump is leaking water. The weep hole is a warning sign that the water pump needs replaced. You don't have any heat because the impeller in the water pump is no longer circulating water.

Use a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that connects the negative battery cable to the battery post. Remove the cable. Jack up the car using an automotive jack.
Set a large container underneath the radiator at the drain hole to catch the discharged coolant. Open the cap on top of the radiator and unplug the drain plug underneath the radiator.
Remove the components that lead to the water pump using an adjustable wrench. In order, these include the upper and lower engine covers, the accessory drive belt and its tensioner and the upper and center timing belt covers.
Free up the timing belt by turning the engine so that the number one cylinder is at the TDC mark. Loosen the timing belt tensioner enough to ease the belt from the sprocket. Remove the timing belt mounting bolts.
Unbolt the water pump retaining bolts and then the water pump. Remove the o-ring and discard it. Clean the mounting surface.
