SOURCE: Where is coolant drain plug on the block of a 2001 Ford Escort?

the cooling drain plug is under the front of the car just under bumper and under the trim on the driver side but look to see if the cooling is coming from your intake gaskets are a heater hose

SOURCE: my 93 olds bravada leaks water out the rear

You have to get underneath with a work light. Usually leaks from freeze plugs or cracked blocks happen after the outside temp drops below freezing. Those 4.3 L V6 engines are known for blown headgaskets. Do a compression test to be sure. You can also buy leak detector dye from auto parts stores but you would need to use a black light or at least a flourescent light.

SOURCE: water leak at back of block

we had the same problem on my 97 rodeo and thought the same thing but it so happens that there is a water tube that runs under the intake and has an o ring that over time gets hot and ends up dry rotting. which causes it to leak you wont be able to tell unless you remove the intake manifold and see. i had water filling up and running over the back of the motor which cause us to thing is was a freeze plug but in return it was a lot less work. though you might start here before you pull your tranny

SOURCE: coolant leak on 97 grand cherokee,looks to be

There are two on the rear of the block. If leaking, the coolant will be coming from inside the bellhousing. This part you won't like....you need to remove the transmission to get at them. Check carefully that nothing external is leaking before doing anything further.

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.

Where is freeze plug on 1995 geo tracker


old post.
This is really a suzuki G16 engine question
thats ok,
The G16s are used on Suzuki's and Trackers
Vitara's , Esteems, no others world wide.

I have all the photos and books on those cars.
real books and all parts lists. on them , graphics tool.
the freeze plugs (core plugs on all over.)
IN 1996 only one engine, G16b.
But all G16 blocks these are the same.
sides on all G16 base blocks.
2 left side 1 above filter, one just to rear of that, they are huge.
have to be blind to miss left side, (left means same as left car door)

the problem here is there are 2 engines in 1995, then one in 1996
the heads on both engine are NOT THE SAME>
the head is 8v and 16valves heads
and the 16v has freeze plugs in the top ,next to the cam. inside under valve cover !!!.

why not say where the leak is so we can narrow the search. or state the JOB?????????

i have photos of all parts in any G16.
there are no freeze plug in any 8valve head.
but the 16v yes !!!
the 16v head small inside plugs, if leaking turn the engine oil to milk chocolate fast and worse of driven. (just undid worst)

the blocks are the same, both engines, not pistons,
there are no front or rear engine block freeze plugs only side plugs 4 total.
and sure the right side under intake man will be hard to see. look under car right side to see em.
2 left easy to see and 2 right harder.
the right engine block has 2 freeze plugs one in easy view center , under intake man.
and one tucked behind that water manifold that can leak too.
now the last plugs
the 16valve head has a front freeze plug behind the cam cog wheel. and none on the rear of the head.
so 1 front and 3 inside, top.
My guess, G16b has 8 plugs total.
G16a has 4.

things that go POP in the night (cold night)
the rear water outlet fitting (head) does explode every time one runs this head on pure water, frozen, ask my how I know that, and what clueless girl did that,, heheheheheheheheh

Coolant leak 1994 voyager 3.3


Could be a freeze plug on the engine block. If you have a block heater installed in one of the freeze plug holes, check it for getting too loose and leaking. Pretty common problem with a block heater that's been in there a long time.

When i shut off my car antifreeze leaks from the rear of the engine block


Either a freeze plug or a head gasket is leaking back there. The freeze plug looks like a large metal bottle cap without threads, with the flat part pushed into the block first.

Spark Plug Wiring Diagram For 1994 escort


Firing order is 1-3-4-2
Remove no 1 cylinder sparkplug(furthest from the transmission). Block the plug hole with your hand. Rotate the engine with a wrench until you feel pressure under your hand. No 1 cylinder is now on compression stroke.
Now get the engine on TDC(Line up notch on the crank pulley with the timing pointer). Remove the distributor cap. The rotor arm will be pointing at no 1 cylinder plug wire. Moving clockwise connect the wires.
