How do you change freeze plug on rear side of engine of 99 Mitsubishi Eclipse 2.0 non turbo

Never have changed or seen a rear freeze plug go bad. I would keep checking. You have to remove the transmission to replace one of those. Use a mirror and look for water trails.

I have antifreeze coolant leaking from the rear of my engine and want to gain excess to my rear freeze plugs. Do I pull my transmission to change the rear freeze plugs on the 1989 crown Victoria?

Yes, you have to pull the transmission. But look it over closely. Most likely the coolant is coming from somewhere else. I have never seen or replaced a bad freeze plug back there. Water can't get to them to rust them out from the outside in. Only if you use water only to cool the engine. Heater hoses and the intake manifold gaskets can cause a leak in this area.

You can pull up the rug to expose the firewall and use a hole saw to make a hole in the firewall to gain access to the freeze plug.

Where are the freeze plugs located on a 1998 Ford Expedition with a 5.4L ?

There are plugs on both the driver's and passenger's side of the engine block and both cylinder heads [outboard side of each head]. There are also several plugs located in the rear of the block. The transmission must be removed to access these rear plugs. You should have changed your antifreeze more often!

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.

1993 toyota v6 2wd wont hold water coming out of rear of engine?

If its the rear of the engine thats sounds like a freeze plug went rusty. Make sure its not something else like a heater hose or something leaking and running down the back of the engine. If it is a rear freeze plug the trans will need to be removed to replace it. Please, do your self a favor and use only brass freeze plugs they never rot.

Freeze Plugs

Freeze plugs are generally pried out and pounded in, although some are available that seal by squeezing a rubber piece between washers. Use 2 wrenches to tighten these. All generally available at auto parts stores.

The real problem is often getting to the leaking freeze plug. Some are on the lower sides of the block with plumbing and accessories blocking access. There are also some on the rear surface of the block, which usually require separating the transmission from the engine to replace.
