Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
According to the manufacturer of the freeze plug, the socket that the plug should be inserted into is in the left rear of the engine (left rear assuming you are in the driver's seat looking towards the front of the car). It's hard to say exactly, but I don't think the freeze plug socket is accessible from the top of the engine. I believe I have to jack the front end up, remove the left engine under cover(s), and look for the socket from underneath. If anyone has access to the official Scion/Toyota procedure manual and can explain how to get access to the freeze plug socket, I will be way ahead. Cheers & thanks, Mr_Liss
