Most likely. You may even have to separate the transmission from the engine.

SOURCE: 1992 chev s10 , 2.8 v6 , leaking freeze plug

If the welsh plug is in a position where by removing several items ( manifold --engine mount etc and you can get enough space to swing a hammer to install the new plug. then it can be done with difficulty. If the plug faces the fire wall then unfortunately the motor has to be pulled . The only advantage is that it is just not the one plug because if one is rusted out the rest will not be far behind so it is an opportunity to do the lot.. IT is a good reason to always ensure that the coolant conditioner is always changed regularly and kept up to percentage required.

Can the rear freeze plug in driver side head be replaced without pulling the head?


it needs space to swing a hammer to drive the new plug into place
I would consider moving the motor and gear box as an assembly rather that pull the head

I have antifreeze coolant leaking from the rear of my engine and want to gain excess to my rear freeze plugs. Do I pull my transmission to change the rear freeze plugs on the 1989 crown Victoria?


Yes, you have to pull the transmission. But look it over closely. Most likely the coolant is coming from somewhere else. I have never seen or replaced a bad freeze plug back there. Water can't get to them to rust them out from the outside in. Only if you use water only to cool the engine. Heater hoses and the intake manifold gaskets can cause a leak in this area.

Do I have to pull the engine to replace the freeze plugs?


if you can physically access them, no you would not have to remove the engine, but given the orientation of the motor and trans I highly doubt you can get to all of them without pulling the engine....also I must ask, why do you need to do this? unless the are leaking... typically these should no need replacing unless they have popped out due to the block freezing..

Replacing freeze plugs on Madza 929 Do you have to take the head off to get to some of them ?


if you ever have this issue where you don't believe them. they have shop manuals and can show you the parts in the motor. you have the 6 cylinder and i don't have the shop manual to see how they come apart. most engines you don't need to pull the heads off. yours could be different. there should be freeze plugs around the block that rust out and are a pain to change. did they pull the motor to change those? what year is it and i am guessing you live where they salt the roads

Need to replace freeze plugs


You just drive the exixting freeze plug into the hole in the engine block. Once it has been driven all the way into the water jacket, it can be turned sideways and pulled out of the hole with a pair of pliers. Then you put a little black rtv on the edge of the new freeze plug and drive it straight into the hole until the edge of the freexe plug is flush with the surface of the engine block. This is usually done with a freeze plug driver set. SEE PICTURE BELOW

Now how to go about getting to the freeze plug is a whole other story. Each freeze plug presents problems of its own. Some of the can be accessed very easilly. Some of them require that things like starter motors or motor mounts have to be removed to get tho them. Then there are the ones that are located on the back of the engine block which usually require transmission removal to access them.

Freeze Plug


Major job without the right tools! There are freeze plugs hidden by the bell housing on the trans. If you can see the plug without pulling the trans, use a long punch and knock the plug out(poke a hole in one edge and pry out).If you can't see the plug pull the trans. replace the plug. (you need an engine holder to hold the engine in place from the top.
