What size engine?? Most of the time, freeze plugs are usually toward the bottom of the block. on a V6 or V8 there are usually 2 on each side of the block. About the size of a 50 cent piece, you pop a hole in the plug with a punch or phillips head screwdriver and pry it out. Drain the block first though. I forgot it once and regretted it.....alot. LOL Good luck

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.

Why would my engine block be spewing water out under neath next to the oil filter


Hello,

On an engine block there are 'Freeze plugs'. The reason for freeze plugs is to allow for expansion (E.G.--when water freezes it expands). If water does get cold enough or does not have enough antifreeze in the system the water will expand and 'pop' a freeze plug to prevent the engine block or heads from cracking. However--these plugs can fail (not cold related) causing a leak in the cooling system. Thus water circulates through the block and heads to provide cooling (water pump-radiator-heater core). Also--water pumps when they go bad have a hole that 'pops' and leaks to let you know the water pump needs to be replaced. Therefore--Location is key.

I hope this helps.

Leaking water at the back of the motor on top. Think it is a hose but don't know how to get to it. Do you have a diagram


there is no diagram. All you can do is get a mirror to verify or have mechanic verify. Then start taking things off. Finding whats leaking is the first step. This is done with the parts still on the car and the system pressureized. If the intake gasket is whats leaking or a freeze plug the engine may need to be pulled or the intake may need to be removed. But no matter what you need to locate the leak before anything is done.

Cracked engine??!!
Yes there are freeze plugs, but you need to keep your coolant up to a level that it won't freeze!
You could have, and should have it checked for, major damage and need a new engine!
