Remove old freeze plug using screwdriver and pliers, install new one using a socket or pipe the same size as the freeze plug and gently tap it into the block until seats flush with the block.

I cant find the freeze plug 1997 mazda protege


If you cannot find the freeze plug, it is probably because you have no idea what you are looking for. First off, there isn't just "A" freeze plug on an engine, there are numerous ones located all around the block and sometimes on the cylinder heads as well. Some are concealed between the engine rear and firewall, some may be concealed behind accessories such as the power steering pump, water pump, or alternator, and yet others may be hidden between the engine and transmission. A freeze plug is a recessed metal disc that is pressed into the casting to allow expansion of freezing water to pop it out, preventing the casting from cracking in the event of a freeze-up in extremely cold conditions. Unfortunately, these plugs corrode over time and may leak, requiring replacement. The rule of thumb is that if the offending plug is accessible, replace the bad one and move on. If it is not accessible and you need to remove the engine to provide service, then you are best suited to replace ALL freeze plugs since you already have access to them and if one has gone bad, the others may well soon follow. You wouldn't want to go to the expense of pulling the engine to replace a rear freeze plug, only to have to it again in the short-term future. Here is a shot of some freeze plug openings....one with a plug in it and two that are open. Additionally, removal of the freeze plugs also allow for more thorough cleaning of the engine block in the chemical tank during engine overhaul and rebuilding processes.

Rear driver side heard freeze plug replacement.


It is impossible to propose a diagnosis without knowing the YEAR, MAKE and MODEL of your vehicle.
That being said, replacement of freeze plugs on any vehicle is not a minor undertaking. The mere failure of a freeze plug suggests poor maintenance of the vehicle over time, and is often a precursor of additional underlying cooling system damage.
To replace freeze plugs, often the engine must be removed, or at least decoupled from the car and elevated, to access the freeze plug location. Once you have access to the freeze plug location, you need to pry out the existing freeze plug, removing all rust deposits from the visible cavity and filing the freeze plug seating surface smooth, then use a mallet and large wooden peg to install the new freeze plug.
Once you are done, it is highly advisable to replace the thermostat in the vehicle, check the condition of the radiator, and be certain to maintain a 50/50 ratio of antifreeze to water, using only filtered water.

That is referred to as a freeze plug. They are placed in engine blacks and heads to prevent cracking should the coolant freeze in the block. The expanding water would push them out. They will rust out over time. They can be removed and replaced. They are just a press-in metal disk.
