It's not a good idea. Lose of antifreeze can cause engine over heat causing all kinds of damage . The nice thing is that Chevys motors the frost plug is a fairly easy job.

1) block and raise front of truck.
Let motor cool
2) drain anti-freeze, remove bottom hose.
3) remove old frost plug careful not to let old frost plug drop back inside.
4) do everything in reverse order.
5) good time to inspect replace any bad hoses and install a new thermostat , and heater hoses.
6) flush system and add new 50 /50 antifreeze
7) run motor with radiater cap off and heater set to high. This step is to remove any air cought in the system. Don't panic if you for the first time don't remove all the air trapped inside just do this final step all over again.
8) check for leaks.

How do I fix the freeze plug in my 1995 crysler concord

Well if you can get to the freeze plug with the engine in the car, if it is a smooth metal one,just drive a punch or a heavy sheet metal screw into it with a hammer then pop out.Once the old one is out,clean up the area with some sandpaper.if you are replacing with a rubber one or a metal one,always use some high temp sealer around the replacement plug and let it sit overnight to cure so it wont leak in the future. Some freeze plugs cant be fixed without the engine being raised up or taken out of the car though just so you know.You will have to judge that by where the leaking freeze plug is.

How to replace rear freeze plug

You will have to pull the trans to get to the freeze plug. Take a punch and knock one side of the plug in then pull the rest of the plug out with plires.Take sand paper and clean the hole, Apply permatex sealant around the new plug, and drive it in with a socket that will just fit inside the freeze plug. You should replace them both while you are there. Good Luck

Water leaking behind oil pan on a 95 chevy camaro-3.4L

If I rember correctly, there are two freeze plugs in the back of the block, behind the flywheel. They generally dont go bad often because they are pretty much protected. As that angelo guy said, more likely a hose or rear of intake gasket, but you have to look, from here I can't see it!!!
