Freeze plug location front of chevy 5.3 liter engine diag


Hello Richard,

There doesn't appear to be a freeze plug on the front of the block.
They are always located on the lower sides of the block.

If you can see water on the front of the engine do a visual inspection when the motor is off and cold.

Take a rag and dry off any noticeable moisture. Start the engine and let it warm up, carefully check all the areas listed below to see if you can isolate the leak.

The radiator could be leaking and dispersing coolant towards the motor while driving the car. A hose or fitting could be leaking. The intake manifold or thermostat gasket could be leaking. The water pump could be leaking at higher RPM's.

Where is the freeze plug location on 1997 chevy 3/4 ton 2500


ther are a number of freeze plugs on that motor , if I remember there are 2 on each side and 2 in the front , pressure test it , you should find your leak then are you sure it is coming from the water pump the water goosneck is right on top of the manifold in the front , those are the only 2 things that can leak unless it is a head gasket on the outside which will not affect anything ,very rare but I have seen it , no hole in the heater hose or bad clamp crack somewhere , pressure test it, you should find it then good luck

Water leak on passenger side of engine.


leaking freeze plug. block sealer should fix problem if veh is running fine, and only losing small amounts of water if it's pouring out as soon as you put water in then will need to replace the freeze plug, may have to remove exhaust manifold to do so, depending on which freeze plug is leaking, (if easily accessible most parts stores have rubber expansion freeze plugs, that you can put in and tighten down with a wrench or socket)

Hi I have a 1996 grand prix SE 3.1L engine. Its leaking a good amount of coolant, mostly from around the the back of the engine. I look under the car and can see also little driplets along the...


Yes, the pump is on passenger side. But when car is moving, the coolant that leaked can get blown all over, so you need to check carefully. Use rags to wipe off all the coolant you can see, then when more leaks out, maybe you can see where it comes from.
The noise on driver's side might be coolant boiling inside the engine. Be careful it doesn't overheat, or you will be doing the gasket job again.
On the backside of the engine (near the firewall), a couple of possibilities: the heater hoses are there, so check them for leaks. Also on the engine block, about halfway up the block, there are 3 or 4 freeze plugs, spaced evenly along the engine (also on the front side of the engine-the same freeze plugs. Check if any of these are leaking. Use a flashlight and maybe get under the engine to look around-be careful if you have to raise the car-don't trust a jack, but use blocks or jack stands.. The freeze plugs are round metal plugs about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and pressed into the block. You can see or feel them. They can be punched out and new ones pushed in. But make sure you have one that is leaking before attempting that.
Good luck, Joe.

Py 1997 plynouth voyager is leaking antifreeze could it be freeze plugs and where are they


They are called CORE plugs as when they are made they take out all the sand out of the holes and fit in plugs.But if your leaking water out and cannot find it then yes its a core plug... as all summer you use coolant min 20%,Winter coming on 20% Antifreeze. and soon as winter is finished you should flush out the engine and radiator as Antifreeze causes the block to go rusty as its cast iron and the core plugs must be BRASS not steel because antifreeze eats away the plugs
But the plugs are fitted 1Rear of engine behind the flywheel 3 either side of engine block and some times 3 or 4 in the heads under the rocker gear..
Let me know how you get on .. Ron
