Do you have to lift the engine to raise freeze plugs?

Raise freeze plugs?? If replacing frost plugs normally the engine does not have to be raised. In some cases accessories will have to be removed to access the plug/s for replacement

1have a2001 ford taurus water froze up in it a couple of nights ago i took the drain plug out flushed it with cold water then then reattaced the drain plug put water in it and water started coming out...

If you didn't have adequate anti-freeze in the car, it could be damaged as water expands when it freezes. In extreme cases, it can actually split the engine open. To prevent that, they put in "freeze plugs" that are designed to blow out before the engine is damaged. Hopefully that is all that has happened and your freeze plugs can be replaced. However it is possible that the radiator was damaged too.

What could be the problem with a Case 580b that is getting coolant in the oil pan?

Check your crankcase oil - if it looks like Jergens Lotion, you probably have a blown headgasket that has failed between oil and coolant channels.

1997 ram 1500 5.2 l water jacket core plugs. where are they and how do u replace them

Well, if you can see water dripping from the freeze plug, I don't think I should have to tell you where it is located....You obviously already know that.

To change it, drain your cooling system the best you can. Then use a punch ot pry ber or something similar wjth a hammer to drive the plug into the engine block. Once the plug is driven in, it can be turned sideways and pulled out with a pair of pliers. Then you buy a new freeze plug and install it into the engine block to plug the hole. There are "freeze plug driver" tool kits available for performing this task. Some of the aftermarket parts suppliers will "loan" you the tools to accomplish this. Many of the freeze plugs are very difficult to access with the engine in the vehicle. MOST of them can be replaced without removing the engine, but many of them require the special driver tools to install them correctly.

Depending on WHICH freese plugs are leaking, other components like alternators, power steering pumps, motor mounts, etc. may have to be removed to gain access to them. The ones on the back of the engine block require the transmission to be removed in order to get to them. You just have to deal with each one as required.

In some cases where the cooling system is badly corroded, it is more cost-effective to just remove the engine from the vehicle and replace ALL of the freeze plugs. Again, this has to be judged on a case-by-case basis.

I have water pouring from the side of the engine

Look for a crack in the block or head, a blown gasket, or a bad expansion plug*. I assume the water is your coolant. If that is the case, the level in the radiator will be low.
The coolant leak could be up higher - perhaps it's coming from the thermostat plumbing or the temperature sensor. It could even be a crack in one of the heater hoses. The worst case is the cracked block - in that case the engine is essentially junk. A leaky hose connection is the easiest to fix.
*Note on expansion plugs (AKA freeze plugs). These look like inverted jar lids pressed into the block and are designed to be pushed out if the coolant freezes so the expansion of the ice doesn't crack the block (freezing can happen if you don't have a proper anti-freeze/water mix in cold weather). If you don't replace your anti-freeze according to the maintenance schedule, they may rust out and cause a leak.

Do you have to lift the motor on a Pontiac grand prix 6 cyl. to get to the back freeze plug that is leaking oil?

if you have a freeze plug leaking oil you've got major problems....freeze plugs or expansion plugs are for engine coolant only, they are there in case the coolant freezes it will pop out one of those plugs before it cracks open the engine block. at least in theory. you should probably start with the valve cover gaskets and then do upper and lower intake gaskets...

What is a freeze plug

Your engine is water cooled and therefore has water travelling around the engine block. 
A freeze plug is an expansion plug located in the side of an engine block that is supposed to protect the block against freezing conditions. Water expands when it turns to ice, and if the coolant does not have enough antifreeze protection it can freeze and crack the engine block. The freeze plugs (there are usually several of them) are supposed to pop out under such conditions to relieve the pressure on the block.
Most of the plugs to be found on an engine are actually to plug the holes where sand cores have been held. The sand cores are used in the casting process to form internal cavities in the engine block or cylinder head, for cooling water for example, and so should really be referred to as core plugs.

Freeze plugs can often be a source of troublesome leaks as a result of internal cooling system corrosion. Ease of replacement depends on accessibility. In many cases the plug area will be difficult to reach and using a mallet to perform maintenance or replacement will be nearly impossible without special facilities. Expanding rubber plugs are available as replacements when access is a problem.
Hope that helps...
