Where is freeze plug on 1995 geo tracker

old post.
This is really a suzuki G16 engine question
thats ok,
The G16s are used on Suzuki's and Trackers
Vitara's , Esteems, no others world wide.

I have all the photos and books on those cars.
real books and all parts lists. on them , graphics tool.
the freeze plugs (core plugs on all over.)
IN 1996 only one engine, G16b.
But all G16 blocks these are the same.
sides on all G16 base blocks.
2 left side 1 above filter, one just to rear of that, they are huge.
have to be blind to miss left side, (left means same as left car door)

the problem here is there are 2 engines in 1995, then one in 1996
the heads on both engine are NOT THE SAME>
the head is 8v and 16valves heads
and the 16v has freeze plugs in the top ,next to the cam. inside under valve cover !!!.

why not say where the leak is so we can narrow the search. or state the JOB?????????

i have photos of all parts in any G16.
there are no freeze plug in any 8valve head.
but the 16v yes !!!
the 16v head small inside plugs, if leaking turn the engine oil to milk chocolate fast and worse of driven. (just undid worst)

the blocks are the same, both engines, not pistons,
there are no front or rear engine block freeze plugs only side plugs 4 total.
and sure the right side under intake man will be hard to see. look under car right side to see em.
2 left easy to see and 2 right harder.
the right engine block has 2 freeze plugs one in easy view center , under intake man.
and one tucked behind that water manifold that can leak too.
now the last plugs
the 16valve head has a front freeze plug behind the cam cog wheel. and none on the rear of the head.
so 1 front and 3 inside, top.
My guess, G16b has 8 plugs total.
G16a has 4.

things that go POP in the night (cold night)
the rear water outlet fitting (head) does explode every time one runs this head on pure water, frozen, ask my how I know that, and what clueless girl did that,, heheheheheheheheh

The block heater cord to 2004 jetta came unplugged from the car and I'm not sure where to look to plug it back in Can someone give me a general idea where it might go?

Block heaters are installed on the engine block in one of the "freeze plug" openings. The freeze plug is punched out and the block heater is installed in its place. The freeze plugs, about 3 on each side of the engine, are midway up the block- a round, slightly recessed metal plug about 2 inches in diameter that is driven into these holes made during the engine casting process. The freeze plugs will be found below where the exhaust manifold attaches-so if you are looking on the side of the engine with the exhaust manifold-look behind and just below the exhaust manifold. The other side of engine will have the same number of freeze plugs at the same level on the engine block.
Your block heater is probably on the front facing side of the engine (towards the radiator). It is probably shinier than tom the he regular freeze plugs, will have a small screw in the center for tightening when installed, and will have 2 or 3 metal prongs that your heater cord attaches to. Simply plug it back into the heater. Just remember: about halfway up on the engine block, from the oil pan rail at bottom to the top of block where the cylinder head mates.

Coolant leak 1994 voyager 3.3

Could be a freeze plug on the engine block. If you have a block heater installed in one of the freeze plug holes, check it for getting too loose and leaking. Pretty common problem with a block heater that's been in there a long time.

How can i tell what size motor my dodge intrepid 1994 has?

From what I could find it is a 3.3L or a 3.5L.If you open the hood,look on top of the engine,most likely the valve covers which are rectangular and should be right above the spark plugs.Normally the number is there.I googled and the 2 listed above should be the only number you see,one or the other.
Good luck! Greg

Have coolant leak coming from rear of engine i was looking to find the location of the freeze plugs this started after getting hot otherwise running fine

It is not the freeze plug but the o-ring gasket at the back of the 23 radiator lines back there, there are 2 that you have to replace, Easy fix, but a nightmare to get to. The o-rings are nothing special, reg off the shelf. It wold be a good idea to take fotos before you start so you can see where everything was when you started, then it should all go back. the intake, dist coils, all the pipes, have to be moved out of the way. You get to clean up that mess back there while you are at it, Good luck.

How to install freeze plug on 1994 bmw

A freeze plug is in the engine block itself; they look like small round caps pressed into the block. Get a Chilton or Haynes repair manual from a parts store.
from mbrown3039: There are only a couple of freeze plugs you can get to without removing suspension components or pulling the engine entirely (btw, any engine overhaul should include replacing the freeze plugs -- they're only a dollar or two each, so take the time to do it if the engine is already out for any reason), but the key is to make sure you get the correct size and then tap it into place using either a plug tool (the preferred method, as it will make sure you have seated the plugs evenly and to the correct depth) or by placing a socket just smaller than the plug inside the lip of the plug and using a socket extension and hammer to tap it into place. Take your time and buy a couple of extra ones in case you damage the first one when installing it -- since you'll lose most of your coolant when you remove the old plug (have a bucket handy!), you'll be without a car until you complete this repair and add more coolant. Good luck!

1994 olds ceirra soft plug removal

I just want to make sure we are talk about the same item.

I hope FREEZE PLUG (silver metal cap) is same a your soft plug.

Please read on if it's the same thing........disregard my post if it's not

To remove freeze plug we drill a small hole onto the plug and use a slide hammer / body work hammer to slip out the cap.

Clean out the inner surface area real good before you put a new on.

Coolant leak from rear of engine in bellhouseing area

Sounds like you have a freeze plug that has rusted out. And it is located in side the bell housing behind the flywheel. You will need to remove the transmission and the flywheel to gain access to the freeze plugs. There are two of them at the rear of the engine above the center line of the crankshaft. One to the left and one to the right.
