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.

How to change freeze plugs on 2001 mercury mountnier with a 302 engine

This is a tuff freeze plug to get to. If the plug is fully exposed you can punch a hole it and pry it out with a screw driver. Once out you can replace it with an expandable rubber freeze plug to get the job done in the car. If not this may require pulling the drive train down to get at it or pull the engine to make the repair. Feel the freeze plug with your fingers to determine the best route.

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.

Freeze Plug

Major job without the right tools! There are freeze plugs hidden by the bell housing on the trans. If you can see the plug without pulling the trans, use a long punch and knock the plug out(poke a hole in one edge and pry out).If you can't see the plug pull the trans. replace the plug. (you need an engine holder to hold the engine in place from the top.

87chevyG30 5.7lV8 core plug removed w/out taking out engine?

You should not have to pull the motor to replace any of the freeze plugs, except the 2 on back of engine block witch requires engine removel or trans. removel. Depending on witch one thats leaking. There are 3 on each side, and 2 on the rear of engine, most common one to leak is the one above the starter, witch requires starter removel, there is one in the middle thats you have to jack up engine to remove engine mount to get too. There all located below exhaust manafold on each side. They are a bear to chg. but can be done without engine removel.

How do I change the water pump and timeing belt?

The 3.2 and 3.5L ARE interference engines with zero tolerance. That means, like I said, if you get it wrong and start the engine, you will blow the motor. It is nothing like a 350 chevy. My advice would be to take it to an auto repair shop, and not a friend that thinks he is a mechanic. It is not worth blowing your motor.

Antifreeze leak in back of engine

Sounds like your right rear freeze plugs are probably leaking .. but first you need to make sure its not coming from up around the rear of the intake before pulling the transmission . this would be the best way to fix this problem .. thanks jerry holler if you need more.
