If the defective Freeze Plug is located at the BACK of the engine block, then the repair must include transmission removal. It will also be necessary to remove the engine flexplate/flywheel. More detailed information can be provided when you include Make, Model, and Engine code (size).

How to replace freezeplug for a 2000 oldsmobile alero

Remove the old one and tap in the new one with a hammer and a socket that fits inside of it. Can you actually reach the leaking freeze plug without pulling the engine? Maybe try some leak sealer like Blue Devil instead and leave in the old freeze plug.

Why is there antifreezes leaking out of bell housing on a 1999 dodge Cummings diesel engine, is it a freeze plug or a crack in block

there almost certainly will be a freezeplug in that area , but first make completely sure the coolant isn't leaking higher up and looks like from bell housing , get the area steam cleaned and make sure it's not from the head gasket or another freeze plug , 30 minutes spent doing this could save you time and money dropping the gearbox etc , hope this helps

Where are the freezeplugs located on a lincoln towncar 1996

According to Haynes Manual, for a 4.6 OHC motor, the Freeze plugs are located about 3-4 inches below the cylinder head, under the exhaust manifold. The back plug is 5-6 inches in front of the bell housing on the block. They are pictured on page 2C-21 of the Manual in section 15 Engine Block Cleaning..

Rear freeze plug location

without knowing the year, make or model, ill give a few examples:



sometimes to replace the rearmost freezeplugs, head or engine must be removed. Lots easier to make sure you got proper coolent. Freeze plugs are on the sides as well as the back, and some are actually behind the flyweel, ouch!

Freeze plug above motor mount on a 4.3 g20 van

need to unbolt both motor mounts taking the big center bolt out on both sides..raise the engine with a floor jack enough to acess the faulty freezeplug with a tool from hit the tool with a hammer and push it into the block, then once loosened, remove with a pair of channel lock pliers then replace the new freezeplug carefully..these are a one time install piece so be careful to put it in straight..lower the engine back onto the mounts reinstall the bolts and fill and check everything..

Freeze plup location

Back of engine, eh? The freeze plugs (3, maybe 4 on that back side) will be on the engine block, below the cylinder head, and below where the exhaust manifold mounts up. Look in back of the exhaust manifold for the plugs. Check for indication of leaking, it should be evident. If you have an engine block heater installed in one of the freeze plug holes, that may have loosened and started leaking. If you find a plug that needs replaced, put a stout screwdriver or punch on the freezeplug, not at the center of plug but to the edge, and whack it good. That edge will go in and the other side will stick out- grab with pliers and remove. Clean the area well to remove rust and scale where freezeplug seals in the block. It will be hard, possibly, to put in a new freeze plug with everything in the way. So buy a rubber expansion plug at the parts store-easy to install, just put a wrench on it to tighten. Take your old freezeplug with you to get the right sized expansion plug.
Good luck, hope you find it.

What is a fair price to replace a freeze plug on 1997 mazda 626

frezze plugs are 3-5 dollars the cost to install them is sometimes expensive because you have to remove parts off the car to get to the freezeplug ? so without knowing which one it would be hard to price ? some are on the back of the engine block and you have to remove the transmission to change thoses??

Coolant leaking from two russted freze plugs on the side closest to the heater core

Having enough room to hit the new freeze plug to install it is probably your biggest problem They make an expandable freeze plug which tightens with a socket, but aside from a hot block, I don't know how close to the exhaust manifold your freeze plugs are. An emergency repair may be to drain the antifreeze, clean and scuff the old freezeplug and try JB Weld. If you have a small leak after that, some radiator sealer may finish the job.
