Where are all the freeze plug located on 4.6 w/auto. is there one between the block & transmission

Yes, there are expansion plugs (freeze plugs) on both sides of the engine block and at the rear of the engine block between the engine and transmission. There are also a couple in the ends of the cylinder heads.

With all that said, I would like to add that many times with that engine, the heater tube and connecting hoses can leak and be mistaken for a rear expansion plug leaking. I would definately check this before pulling the transmission out.

There is a tube that runs from the back of the water pump under the intake manifold and out the rear of the engine where it hooks up to the heater hose/heater core. This tube has a small hose connecting it to the back of the water pump. There is also a hole in the back of the engine block that will allow antifreeze from under the intake manifold to leak into the transmission bell housing area. When this tube or hose leaks, it often gets mistaken for a leaking rear expansion plug.

It is very easy to check for this. Remove the serpentine belt and remove the alternator and look under the intake manifold down in the "valley" between the cylinder heads. If there is antifreeze in there, the hose or the tube is leaking. Look at the picture below. Item #3 is the tube and hose assembly I am talking about. Usually, just the hose is leaking. It should be replaced with a short piece of SILICONE heater hose. On some of the vehicles, there are 2 hose clamps. On others, the end of the hose that is attached to the tube has a crimped collar on it. If yours is like this, you can fix it by carefully cutting the crimp collar off and replacing the hose using band clamps. (screw-type)

Also look for antifreeze leaking into this area from the front intake manifold runner. They tend to leak on the front runner near where the thermostat housing is located. These will also leak into the valley area and run out the back of the engine. If the manifold is leaking, chances are it is warped. DORMAN makes a replacement intake manifold kit just for this purpose because it has been so common. It is also very easy to check for this with the alternator removed.
The DORMAN part number for your vehicle is 615-178 (See second picture below)

How do I replace the water dispenser tube for a Kenmore Coldspot model # 106.53769201. The end of the line disintegrated at the spot where you put your glass under the dispenser.


Ice makers and water dispensers are convenient to have on your refrigerator, but can also cause a lot of aggravation if they are not functioning properly.

If your water valves are not defective and you are still experiencing water or ice delays, you may have a clog in your refrigerator hose line.
Instructions and material needed to fix it up.

  • Towel,Flathead screwdriver,New water hose
  1. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator and place a towel under the line to soak up any residual water that leaks from the hose when you remove it. Unplug the refrigerator.
  2. Disconnect the hose from the back of the refrigerator by pushing in on the collar while pulling the water tube out. If you have a model with an ice and water dispenser, you will need to disassemble the dispenser on the front of the freezer in order to completely remove the water hose.
  3. Remove the water drip tray from beneath the ice/water dispenser and locate the screws at the bottom of the cover (if any). Remove screws and pop off the panel that houses the dispenser. If the unit does not have screws, you will need to pry the cover off with a flat-nosed screwdriver.
  4. Once the cover is removed, you should be able to see the screws that hold the dispenser unit in place. Remove these screws and reposition the unit so you can free the water hose, by pulling it through the dispenser.
  5. Thread the new water line through the freezer door and reassemble dispenser unit. Push the new water hose into the fitting on the back panel, making sure it is properly seated. Turn on water supply and check for any leaks before moving the refrigerator unit back against the wall.
Good Luck and thanks for using fixya.

The regulator is freezing up. I just replaced the tubing, regulator, and hose with new oarts. Still freezing up

Are you opening your propane tank valve all the way? This will cause what you are seeing and there is an easy fix - when you open your propane bottle valve, only open it one to two turns and your regulator shouldn't freeze up.

My 1990 chrysler imperial will idle fine but it dies when you give it gas.I changed the fuel pump and both computers and i'm still having the problem.

Sounds as though it may be your fuel pressure regulator. Easy fix and you can troubleshoot it easily also. Check the fuel pressure first. This is your part....

Fig. 13: Compression gauge and a combination vacuum/fuel pressure test gauge

TESTING Except Premier and Monaco NOTE: To perform this test, you will need a pressure gauge capable of reading pressures above 55 psi (379 kPa). The gauge must have a connection that will fit the fuel rail service valve. The gauge must be the equivalent of Chrysler pressure gauge No. C-4799 and the connector fitting compatible with pressure test adapter 6539. You may also need a T and the fittings necessary to connect the gauge into the fuel supply line at the tank, as well as a 2 gallon container suitable for collecting fuel.
  1. Release the fuel system pressure as described in Section 1.
  2. Disconnect and plug the vacuum line going to the fuel pressure regulator.
  3. Remove fuel hose quick connector from the chassis line.
  4. Install the adapter between the fuel supply hose and chassis fuel line assembly for the 3.0L engines or into the service port of the fuel rail for 3.3L and 3.8L engines.
  5. Hold the gauge and have someone start the engine. Run the engine at idle speed in Neutral (manual transaxles) or Park (automatic transaxles). CAUTION
    Exercise extreme caution while under the hood with the engine running. Keep clear of all moving belts, fans, exhaust manifolds, etc.
  6. Read the pressure. It should be 48 psi (330 kPa). If it is outside the range, take note of it.
  7. Stop the engine.
  8. Once again depressurize the system, disconnect the gauge and replace the protective cover.
  9. If the pressure was correct, the test is complete. If the pressure is below the range, proceed with the next step; if it is too high, skip to Step 13. WARNING
    In the next step, note that fuel may drain from the lines as you disconnect them. Make sure all surrounding exhaust system parts are cool and that all sources of ignition are removed from the area. Collect fuel and dispose of it safely.
  10. Connect the gauge into the fuel supply line running between the tank and the filter which is located at the rear of the vehicle. WARNING
    Make sure all connections are secure.
  11. Have an assistant start the engine, then read the pressure gauge. If the pressure has risen more than 5 psi (35 kPa), replace the filter. If the pressure is now within range, allow the engine to cool and remove all sources of ignition; depressurize the system; disconnect the gauge from the lines; replace the fuel filter; and restore all connections.
  12. If the pressure is still too low, gently and gradually pinch the fuel return line closed as you watch the gauge. If the pressure increases, the fuel pressure regulator is at fault. If there is no change, the problem is either clogging of the filter sock mounted on the pump or a defective pump itself.
  13. If the pressure is too high, follow this procedure:
    1. Shut off the engine and allow it to cool.
    2. Depressurize the fuel system, then disconnect the fuel return hose at the chassis, near the fuel tank.
    3. Connect a 3 ft. (91cm) length of hose to the open end of the line running along the chassis. Position the open end of the line into a container suitable for collecting fuel.
    4. Have a helper start the engine, then check the pressure again. If it is now correct, check the in-tank fuel return hose for kinking.
    5. If the in-tank fuel return hose is okay, and the system still exhibits excessive pressure with the tank half full or more, the fuel pump reservoir check valve or aspirator jet may be obstructed and the assembly must be replaced.
  14. If the pressure is still too high, perform the following:
    1. Shut the engine OFF, and allow it to cool.
    2. Depressurize the system once again and reconnect the fuel lines at the rear.
    3. Disconnect the fuel return hose at the pressure regulator. Collect all fuel that drains.
    4. Run the open connection into a large metal container.
    5. Reconnect the fuel gauge to the fuel rail.
    6. Start the engine and repeat the test. If the fuel pressure is now correct, clean a clogged return line or replace pinched or kinked sections of the return line. If no such problems exist, replace the fuel pressure regulator.
Premier and Monaco CAUTION
Wear eye protection when servicing the fuel system. Do not smoke or allow open flame near fuel system components during fuel system service.
  1. Remove the fuel tank filler cap to relieve the fuel tank pressure. NOTE: System fuel pressure will be released when disconnecting the fuel supply tube. Have shop towels handy to absorb spilled fuel.
  2. Use the quick disconnect tool 6182, or equivalent, to remove the black fuel supply tube from the fuel rail. Slide the tool over the nipple and up into the connector until the handle fits the connector. Pull the fuel supply tube off the fuel rail.
  3. Install the fuel tube pressure adapter tool 6175, or equivalent.
  4. Push the female end with the quick-connect fitting over the fuel rail until a click is heard. Pull the connector back to ensure that it is locked in place.
  5. Push the male end with the nipple into the black fuel supply tube until a click is heard. Pull the nipple back to ensure that it is locked in place.
  6. Attach a 0–60 psi (0–415 kPa) gauge from the fuel pressure test kit 5069, or equivalent, to the port on the fuel tube pressure adapter tool.
  7. Start the engine and check the fuel pressure. It should be 28–30 psi (193–207 kPa) for early models and 43 psi (300 kPa) for late models. The fuel pressure regulator on these vehicles is non-adjustable.
  8. If the fuel pressure is low, check for fuel flow through the return tube.
    1. If fuel is returning to the fuel tank through the fuel return tube, replace the fuel pressure regulator with a new one.
    2. If the fuel is not returning to the fuel tank or just trickling out, inspect for a faulty fuel pump, possible clogged fuel filter or other restriction between the fuel pressure regulator and the fuel pump.
  9. If the fuel pressure is high, check the pressure regulator vacuum hose for leaks, and for a kink or restriction in the fuel return hose. If the pressure regulator vacuum hose is not leaking, the return tube is not kinked and does not have a restriction, the fuel pressure regulator should be replaced with a new one.
  10. Remove the pressure gauge.
  11. Disconnect the fuel tube pressure adapter tool with the quick disconnect tool.
  12. Prior to installing the fuel tubes to the regulator and fuel rail the tube ends must be lightly lubricated with clean SAE 30 weight engine oil. Refer to the procedures describing the removal and installation of the fuel tubes.
  13. Install the black fuel supply tube to the fuel rail and the gray fuel return tube to the pressure regulator.
  14. Install the fuel tank filler cap.
  15. Start the vehicle and check for fuel leaks. NOTE: When starting the engine, allow extra time for the system to pressurize itself.

Water pooling & freezing in the bottom of a kenmore model 795.75252400 freezer compartment

The problem is the water drain tube in the freezer is clogged. As the evaperator goes into deicing mode the water from the evaperator is not going down the drain tube. Instead it's over flowing those two air ducts to the refridgerator and causing your water problem. But it's not as simple as simply clearing the clogged drain tube. You need to install a heating element inside the drain tube to keep it from freezing during the deiceing process.

Kenmore 10670187000 Refrigerator. freezer filling with water/ice

You pull it out from inside the freezer but I would try melting any ice that may be stopping it up first with a hairdryer. The water inlet valve on the back of fridge is probably leaking and when the water gets to to fill tube it freezes and partially blocks the tube causing it to spray out. Disconnect the line coming out of the water inlet valve to see if it has a slow leak. You may need to replace the valve.

My Kenmore icemaker seems to be leaking water under the icemaker and it drips and freezes

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
