Hopefully it's one that you can get to. Just take a screwdriver and put it on one side of the plug and give it a hit with a hammer. It will turn to one side and you can grab it with pliers and pull it out. There are replacement metal plugs and if you have good access just put a large socket inside the new one and drive it in. If you can't get in there they also make an expandable rubber plug that you put in and tighten with a wrench. In either case, make sure you clean the block opening so it does not leak.

Where do I find the freeze plugs on 1998 jeep cherokee sport

On most any engine there usually located under the heads in the block.There should be 2 to 3 plugs on each side.To get to them you might have to remove some accessories such as the manifolds.The plugs should be about 1 7/16 in diameter and made of galvanized steel shaped like a cup.Be sure to look behind any accessory mounted to the block.

Where are freeze plugs located on 1996 jeep cherokee i have water leaking from back of engine was told it might be freezer plugs.

Is it coming from the top, Can you see? Did the car freeze or overheat lately? If not, it is not a freeze plug. It is a coolant line running to the rear of the engine, it has an O-ring gasket that has gone, It is real easy to fix, but you have to take the intake off to get to it. Buy the gasket kit, the seals/O-rings are off the shelf sizes, nothing special, and you will need a schematic of the engine so you can see where you are going. Check it out.

Anti freeze leaking from driver side engine block

You did not mention which engine you have but only three things I can think of that will do that. You need to get underneath and check freeze plugs, head gasket and block itself (for cracks). Leaks aren't that hard to find but you need to look!
