To change the freeze plug.
Use a flat bottom punch to drive in one side of the plug. The plug should twist in the opening, grab the with a pair of vise grips or channel locks and pry it out of the block or head.
To install the need freeze plug. You'll need something to drive it in straight all at the same time, a large dowel, an inverted socket on an extention, ect...
Apply an even bead of hard setting gasket sealer around the edge of the plug then gently drive it in until the plug edge is just below the outer surface of the block or head. Wait 24 hours before adding fluid for the gasket sealer to set and your all done changing the plug.

2004 grand cherokee jeep leaking antifreeze behind motor by transmission


If you are lucky it's a heater hose, if not it's most likely a freeze plug on the back of the engine. There might be some chance of changing the freeze plug without drastic measures like an enginedectomy, then again...
Seek professional help.

How to change freeze plug on 850 volvo


I put my car on ramps. Using a screwdriver and hammer, I chipped away at the leaky freeze plug until I was able to remove it with a pair of pliers. I replaced it with a rubber expansion plug. No more problems. You may want to consider changing other freeze plugs. I wasn't sure what size I needed, so I bought several sizes and simply returned the unopened ones for a refund.

How do you replace the freeze plug in a 1993 spirit?


First find the leaking plug. This may be painfully obvious, or require pressure testing of the cooling system to locate. Remove the old plug. A hammer and punch will work. Place punch at side edge of the freeze plug and apply hammer
Yank the old plug out with a set of pliers. Even though this plug looked fine from the outside the damage is done. Rust is the reason why changing engine coolant according to schedule is a good idea.
Clean the freeze plug mounting surface of any rust and crud with a bit of emery cloth.
Mount the new plug using either a correctly sized socket or seal driver as shown here. A small amount of sealant on the plug is a good idea.
Rubber expansion plugs are available for emergency repairs, or if removal is easier than installation. Do not use sealant on rubber plugs.
