The difficulty arises when you don't have enough room to swing a hammer to tap it in squarely. You need to make up a little slide hammer which uses a rod and sliding weight to tap it in. Once the weight is guided it is much more effective. Depending on what you have in your workshop, try getting a socket that just fits inside the plug and fit it with a small extension. Next find a weight that just slides over the extension and strikes the socket evenly. Some mechanics apply a little grease to the plug on these hard to get ones to get them started a bit easier. Make sure the plug has not been distorted or the lip damaged in the previous attempts or it may not seal.

How many freeze plugs are on a 2000 blazer 4.3 vortec


The freeze plugs are spaced out in a straight line along each side of the block. If you see others at the same height in front or behind where the motor mount is, then yes it probably is a freeze plug.

Put a jack under the engine with a block of wood between the oil pan and the jack head. Raise it slightly to remove the motor mount through bolt, then remove the mount from the engine block. Now you should be able to replace the plug. Use a punch to drive in one side, then grip with pliers and pull it out. Clean the recess before installing new plug. Auto stores stock them in all dimensions, or take your old one in for matching up. The rubber expansion plugs work well, too, and easier to install.
