How do you replace the freeze plug that's under the motor mount 09 1994 F250 7.5

Well, I own a 7.5 powered F-250 but I can't remember that particular freeze plug. When you can't pull the motor, you can at least take the rear tranny mount loose and loosen the engine mounts,put a flat board under it so no dents fron the jack you'll be using. You might even have to loosen exhaust bolts,I dunno, and get some space.
THEN what I have done is pry out the bad freeze plug(punch a hole in the center if you can) and then go to NAPA and get an aftermarket bolt-in type plug. I use the rubber EXPANSION type,but I think they make brass ones too.

Replace rear freeze plug 1998 Z71

depends on your working conditions but it is usually easy to replace all the freeze plugs with the motor out which is what i would do it they r starting to rust through, but it is also easier to realign the trans to the motor than a motor to a trans so really depends on if u r doing more than one freeze plug.

I need to know where the freezeout plugs are located and how many of them are there?

The freeze, core or expension plugs are located on both sides and front and read of the block. Depending on what you're working with determin how many. For instance, my 89 350 will have two on each side of the engine block, two on the rear behind the flexplate (one on each bank) and two on the front (one on each bank).

Freeze plugs on 1999 dodge durango how do I replace the rear freeze plug

If you speak of the freeze plugs on the rear of the block, the transmission must come out to make the repair.

If if the plug is on the side of the block, most likely the plug can be replaced will out too much fanfare.

This was a known issue on the 5.2/5.9 motors. Best to replace all of them if you have to remove the trans.

To replace the rear freeze plugs, am i gonna have to pull the whole engine out?

Unfortunately that would be the best way to do it. It 's very difficult to get to them with the motor in the car. If you can knock out the old ones, you might have luck using the expandable rubber freeze plugs, instead of having to try to pound in steel ones.

1991 (4 cylinder) Toyota Camry freeze plug problem

the price is determined by how much you have to remove in order to gain access to the freeze plug to replace it the freeze plugs themselves are just a couple of dollars but could be several hundred to replace due to gaining access to replace you also have freeze plugs sometimes that are on back of engine and require you to either remove engine or transmission to replace also keep in mind that normally if a freeze plug is leaking it is due to a neglected cooling system that is now full of rust that may have to be flushed out

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.
