I don't know where they are specifically on this model, but generally speaking the freeze plugs are located along both sides of the engine block along the midline between the head gasket and the oil pan gasket. Are you certain the coolant isn't running down the engine from somewhere higher up? Perhaps an intake gasket or hose?

This morning my car wouldnt start . replaced the battery and now no noise. temp is below freezing. what could be my problem?

have a compression test done to check for cracked head and cracked cylinder bores. Water is unforgiving when it turns to ice and will crack engine blocks and heads very easily. Have a pressure test done on the coolant system to find the leaks. Now more than ever it is extremely important to have the anti-freeze in the coolant at the right mix as old coolant will be below that required to prevent freezing of the water.

1992 olds cutlass ciera keeps stalling out is there a main relay switch or ignition module switch that can be replaced? Where is it?Anyother ideas what could cause it to start, drive a few blocks, then...

could be a crankshaft position sensor located on the back side of the engine. There is a two wire plug on it and should be close to the freeze-out plugs. you will need an 8mm wrench to remove it.
