When rain freeze what is it called?


Depends on when it freezes. If it freezes mostly in the air, before it gets down, it's called sleet. If it freezes after it contacts the ground or surface items (trees, buildings, pavement), it's called freezing rain.

Rear driver side heard freeze plug replacement.


It is impossible to propose a diagnosis without knowing the YEAR, MAKE and MODEL of your vehicle.
That being said, replacement of freeze plugs on any vehicle is not a minor undertaking. The mere failure of a freeze plug suggests poor maintenance of the vehicle over time, and is often a precursor of additional underlying cooling system damage.
To replace freeze plugs, often the engine must be removed, or at least decoupled from the car and elevated, to access the freeze plug location. Once you have access to the freeze plug location, you need to pry out the existing freeze plug, removing all rust deposits from the visible cavity and filing the freeze plug seating surface smooth, then use a mallet and large wooden peg to install the new freeze plug.
Once you are done, it is highly advisable to replace the thermostat in the vehicle, check the condition of the radiator, and be certain to maintain a 50/50 ratio of antifreeze to water, using only filtered water.

What does a freeze plug look like


A freeze plug is a smooth sided (not threaded) "plug" or "cup" that is pressed into the side of a cast hole in the engine block, leading to the water (coolant) jacket. Its purpose is to be able to pop-out should the coolant in the block ever freeze (such as when antifreeze solution is too diluted or running straight water as coolant). Since water expands when freezing the freeze plugs will pop out, relieving the pressure, rather than having the block crack. Here's some pics of freeze plugs.

Sometimes older freeze plugs corrode, since they are made of metal only about 1/16" thick, and start to leak. That's the most common reason they are replaced.

How to replace freeze plug


use a punch or a freeze plug remover and knock it out of the cylinder head or block. make sure you drain the cooling system first otherwise there will be a massive mess. clean off seated surface of cylinder head or block with crocus cloth, apply a thin layer of grease on either freeze plug or on the seating surface and use the freeze plug installer to knock the freeze plug back into place.

Freez plugs


Yes. Most all water cooled engines used in automobiles willutilize freeze plugs in their respective design. The freeze plug is there to act as a weak point should the water located in the water jacket of the head freeze and expand. Without the freeze plug, the metal of the head would crack when the water freezes and expands.

Where is the freeze plug located


The engine in your Ford Explorer has freeze plugs, also called expansion plugs, mounted in the sides of the block. Freeze plugs are supposed to protect the engine block if the water in the engine freezes -- the expanded water is supposed to push out the freeze plug, although that doesn't always happen. Freeze plugs are made of thin steel compared to the engine block, and even with an anti-freeze mixture the plugs can rust out and require replacement.

What is a freeze plug and how much do they cost?


a freeze plug is kinda like a metal cap that gets pressed into various strategically positioned holes around the engine. if your engine has water instead of anti-freeze during a freezing night it could cause the water to freeze and expand and pop a freeze plug out. they have to be pressed in. the actual freeze plugs themselves shouldn't cost more than about $20 the labor to install them will vary depending on how difficult they are to reach on your car. They are usually towards the bottom of the engine.
