You tap them out using a small chisel, being careful not to gouge the opening where they install-I have used a screw driver to open the center of the old drain plug, then pryed it out,the worst part of this job is getting to them if the engine is in the car. Once you get the old one out, the new one has to be carefully tapped into plase until it is flush with the block.

How to change the freeze plugs in a 1987 dodge ram van


I'm in the UK ..if by freeze plugs you mean core plugs (as they're known in the UK) it's relatively straightforward.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Assorted-Metric-Cup-Core-Plugs-Material-BS1449-Zinc-Plating-CR4-Qty-60-/201159025436?hash=item2ed603231c:g:MTwAAOSwQItT~4gN

Locate the plug(s) and use a thin chisel or flat bladed screwdriver - punch through the core plug and lever it out.

Clean around the area where the new core plug will go, put a smear of sealant around the rim of the core plug and where it will fit.

Push the core plug into place by hand and then use a hammer to give it a hard tap in the centre. This will 'spread' the core plug to ensure a tight fit.

The link below is Ebay (UK). It is included just to ensure that freezer plugs and core plugs are the same... Don't forget the smear of sealant...

98 ford ranger no heat have changed thermostat water pump heater control valve


Maybe the heater core is plugged or you haven't bled it properly?
If the heater hose returning from the core to the water pump is NOT hot, while the hose going to the heater core from the thermostat area IS hot, then the heater core is plugged probably.
You need to remove the heater hose while cool,from the thermostat area and remove the hose from the water pump area (that's the outlet of the flow thru heater core) AND THEN take a garden hose with p-is-tol grip type sprayer,and blow water back thru the outlet hose out the inlet hose. This will blow any bad plugging material out the way it got in.
Don't apply too much pressure if it is plugged bad. The heater core isn't made to stand 50lbs. water pressure. don-ohio (:^)

I have a 2004 chevy trail blazer it wont heat very well only luke warm air I have changed the fan thermostat and water pump


Possible plugged heater core. Check heater hoses when engine at operating temperature. Both hoses should be close to the same temperature. If one hot and one warm/cold, suspect a plugged heater core. A backflush will be required to correct the problem if it is plugged

Heater core is not heating up


Flush and fill yor system. Change the thermostat. If this doesn't work you probably need to replace the heater core.

4.6 liter has one heater hose warmer than the other. may be plugged core,or is ther a fuse to climate control switch?


Look for a heater valve on one of the hoses if there is no valve i would say its a plugged heater core.
