Question about 1991 Ford Thunderbird
Here it is. most freeze plugs are under exhaust manifolds on block along side of cylinders. you probably have them rusted out. there is a special tool for removing them as well as installing them. looks like a long bar with a ball on the end and steel inserts that fit in plug to drive it in and not too far. if you don't have one can try to rent one from like auto parts store. when removing plug impact very side of it to spin it in the block sideways,them get a prybar or pliers and pull it out. make sure hole is clean and free of coolant. get new plug and add a little rtv to sides of freeze to seal it. lightly tap it in to hold postion,insert metal driver adapter in plug with grease to hold it in place so it wont fall out and get driver bar and smack in plug. the insert adapter is very important,otherwise you will drive it right into water jacket in engine,that's very bad. insert will bottom out on block limiting depth of freeze plug. the driver bar is bent at end for tight spots. good luck!
