yep, there sure is. There is at least one in the back of the engine block, which is inside the bellhousing. But also look closely at the back of the heads before you pull the tranny. There is a freeze plug on the back of each head, and the headgasket can also leak. Coolant can run down the outside of the bellhousing, and end up at the bottom, and will look just like it's coming from inside the bellhousing. I've been fooled by that before. Fortunetly I caught it before I pulled the tranny out.

To the best of my knowledge and information I have checked out, there should be two Freeze plugs in that location.

They are in the rear of the engine. Two can be reached byt two more are between the bell housing and the engine. Not a do-it-yourself job.

Freeze plugs. More likely that hoses are leaking or thermostat housing is leaking. Freeze Plugs generally NEVER leaks unless engine block has had frozen coolant in it. Hence, Freeze Plugs.

Near where the motor and transmission connect

There is 2 freeze plugs between the rear of the engine and the transmission. The freeze plugs are in the back of the engine block. Do not bother the big plug that is in the center of the block, That is the cam plug NOT A FREEZE PLUG. YOu will either have to pull the transmission are the engine to replace those 2 plugs.

there are several freeze plugs. they are along both sides of block and at rear of block behind the flywheel

Perhaps you mean by-pass hose. It allows a small amount of coolant to circulate in engine prior to thermostat opening

User Avatar

The heads themselves have NO freeze plugs in them. But the block/engine has 8 freeze plugs in it.

User Avatar

You have 2 in the bell housing in the back of the engine block. 2 in each sides of the block, and 2 in the front of engine,1 on each side of the timing cover

Engine oil is not going to freeze in your engine. It will get very thick but will not freeze.

Follow the top rad hose to the engine , There you will find the housing undo bolts , clean gasket on housing replace with new gasket and thermostat. Make sure engine is cool and drain anti-freeze first

User Avatar

take a large screw driver and a hammer tap the old freeze plug in the block,replace it with a rubber freeze plug.tighten the rubber freeze plug with a wrench..the metal freeze plug that you pushed inside the block will not hurt anything..hope this helps!!!!

With the freeze plug out it will be impossible to keep water and coolant in the engine as it will all leak out through the freeze plug hole. The engine will over heat and self destruct after a while.

On sides of engine block. Also on the back between the engine and the transmission and in the ends of the heads.

User Avatar

Between the engine block and transmission. You will either have to remove the engine or transmission to get to them. NO OTHER WAY.

User Avatar

yes there are freeze plugs behind the flywheel at rear of block

The engine serial number on1966 Ford Mustang(in-line 6-cylinder engine) on the driver's side fender, under the hood. On the engine look on the passengers side just above the freeze plugs near the bell housing

User Avatar

No, they are in the engine block, not in the heads. Freeze plugs are a misnomer. They are actually casting plugs.

There are four freeze plugs on a 1988 5.7 liter General Motors engine. There are to freeze plugs on each side of the engine.

Freeze plugs in a 96 Lumina are located at several places on the engine block. They are designed to expand and burst in a freeze instead of the engine being damaged.

The freeze plug on a 1998 Ford Taurus is located on the front of the engine block. It prevents the engine from cracking should the coolant freeze.
