Freeze plug cant find any part number or information on replacement part

I replaced timing belt and water pump.I started to flush radiator and I noticed water running from the area of where the water pump is. I tore everything back down again. And found the leak was coming from behind the motor mounting bracket that is bolted to that side of the engine by 3 bolts and behind that is a freeze plug.It was leaking needs new one but I cannot find the part or any information about it. Everything I find is about the cylinder head freeze plugs which are way to small .The freeze plug is shallow freeze plug and over an inch just cant find part can you help.

My Chrysler Concorde 2000 3.2? Overheated and melted a hole in the water resivour tank,so we replaced that, it still got hot fast, so we replaced thermostat, then it started making a loud noise it sounds...


The whistling noise is steam. The problem is you never attacked the source of the problem. What you need to do now is drain your radiator completely at opening T-spicket at the bottom of the radiator. While you drain with engine off, run your water hose on top, to flush out the radiator. Then run to the Auto store and buy "radiator flush" -- follow directions. After flushing out the radiator flush, close the T-spicket, and fill with NEW anti-freeze. By enough to fill to the very top. Mix the anti-freeze with water per instructions to your environmental weather.
Buy a new radiator cap which could have caused the problem in the first place by not allowing the correct pressure to blow off. Being a 2000 car is a little early for radiator problems, but an incorrect anti-freeze solution causes radiators to fail prematurely.. Better to have more than less because anti-freeze keeps the radiator from corroding.
Your radiator never cooled the water sufficiently, and boiled much of the water out, hence it got so hot that it would melt the water tank. The Thermostat could well have been the cause because it got corroded from the inept ant-freeze mixture. Did you find rust on the Thermostat ? If so it was the case. If not the radiator has lost cooling either by low water or the cores have become plugged up, in that case you will need a new radiator. See if the flush loosens the rust within the cores before buying an expensive radiator. Check the water hoses if leaking cooling. Run the car allow the engine to become hot before accepting that your water hoses are fine. Because heat expand everything, and may not leak until after the expansion.

2001 Blazer Replaced heater core now water pump is squealing and seems like low circulation

Overheating when driving down the road


Most common cause is a internally plugged radiator.
The water and coolant often react negatively to the metals and rubber inside the passageways to clog the radiator over time. If you wish to try to "reverse flush " it yourself, ask "fixya".
Other causes may be: Stuck thermostat, plugged fins of radiator outside, water pump slipping or starting to fail by "freezing up",
loose or slipping serpentine belt, and problem with the engine cooling fan.

2000 3.4 v6. i replaced head and manifold gaskets water pump,thermostat.about a month after it would overheat,i would fill it with water ,it would be fine ,now months later it overheats all the time,fans...


It sounds like you have a clogged radiator. You need to flush it out . If it won't unclog you will need to replace it. Sometimes if you ever use stop leak in your radiator, you need to flush that out if you ever replace anti freeze or add more stop leak. Remove radiator cap and start car and let it warm up to operating temp. Fill radiator where you can see the fluid with cap off. While looking at antifreeze gently give the engine a little gas and see if the antifreeze circulates by going down. If it doen't then it is either water pump, thermostat or a plugged up radiator. Good luck.

My car has been over heating. we changed the water pump, and themostat. performed a radiator flush (twice). water was very rusty the first time and a little clearer the second time.


Flushing won't necessarily clean out a severely restricted radiator. A radiator shop can remove one of the tanks and push a rod through the tubes to clear out such a radiator. Now days it's sometimes cheaper just to replace the radiator. A lot of that rust can also collect in the engine block. It's very difficult to get it out of there. Sometimes you have to remove the freeze plugs to get all the rust out of the block.

Over heating


over heating can be caused by a number of things. your water pump could have died or the gaskets could have went on the water pump spilling your antifreeze every where. in which case you need to replace the water pump and gaskets. when you change the water pump you should replace the thermostat because they usually fail at the same time. your thermostat could have locked closed. in which case replace the thermostat. i recommend getting a fail safe thermostat so when it fails it gets locked open and then the car dose not overheat. your belt could have broke so your water pump wont turn. replace the belt. your radiator or hoses could be clogged with rust and sediments in which case you need to flush your radiator and change the anti freeze. you may be just low on anti freeze... so fill it up and see if it leaks anywhere. your tubes could have came off, be loose, or cracked and leaking; so replace or tighten them. your radiator could have a hole in it or leaking some where.. replace radiator. if you drive on dirt roads a lot the radiator could be full of sand and dirt could be full of mud if taken off road. just rinse the radiator out with soap and water. are your floor mats full of water or antifreeze? you could have a bad heater core. replace heater core. or you can cheat and take the two tubes off the heater core and splice them together. (which will leave you with no heat). your fan may have gone out so it wont cool the radiator. the last thing i can think of is very low or no oil in the motor. top off the oil.

Where are the plugs on the side block to flush it out?


If you're referring to the freeze plugs they are hidden under the exhaust maifolds on the 3.0 V6. From my office I don't know your situation but I have never been a big fan of flushing out engine block (coolant flushes) Often times the flushes will kick up fine debris that has been lying within the block. If ALL of the debis is NOT cleared these particles will circulate within the cooloing systems and will, with time, take out the mechanical seal on your water pump; about a 5 hour fix as its driven by the timing belt. If your having big cooling issues with the block then ok I'd have at it but otherwise I'd stick to cleaning up the radiator, replacing the hoses and keep a fresh antifreeeze mix in the system.

I hope this may have assisted you,
Tom

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Maintenance schedule


If the water pump is driven by the timing belt replace it and anything else that is driven by the timing belt(idlers and tensioner) , Also replace the camshaft and crankshaft oil seals while your there.
Never hurts to flush the cooling system and add fresh coolant/anti-freeze.
Hope this helps

2000 sebring. Overheats with air conditioning on.


I just had my coolant flushed and my radiator cooling fan replaced. The car was slightly overheating and would "gargle" in the coolant bowl after I turned the engine off. It turned out to be the radiator was clogged up on one side.

I went full tilt and replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap and timing belt. I have 85,000 miles on the car and it was about time to do these things anyway. It is running like a new car now.
