They can usually be pried out with a screwdriver and knocked back in. Most can be got to with the motor in place somehow. The 2 in the back of the block require either the motor or trans. to be pulled. For me, pulling the motor requires less effort. Less wiring and Plumbing.
its bolted to the motor
Pull the motor or pull the transmission, one of them has to come out.

Does your Firebird have a Chevy or Pontiac motor in it?If it is a Pontiac motor, you will need an adapter from Summit or Jeg's.Also, it could be a different output shaft length and spline count.
sure, you might just have to change the motor mounts if your going from a 6 cyl. to a V8 and of course you will have to change the computer and wiring to the engine.
It is your choice. You can either remove the transmission and leave the engine alone. or pull the engine and leave the transmission alone. If your SMART you will replace all the freeze plugs in the engine.
Freeze plug at the rear of the motor. Between the transmission and the motor.
It has a failed seal/gasket/freeze plug.
Change the motor. These cars are notorious for this.
It is possible for coolant to leak out between the motor and transmission, if a freeze plug has been leaking. I had this problem on an old International Travelall I had. The motor will need to be pulled.
They are on the front, back, and transmission sides of the engine.
No way, one are the other has to be taken out to repair.
It is impossible to do it you have to pull the engine
When the engine is removed from the engine compartment, and detached from the transmission, there are freeze plugs on the back side of the engine. You may be able to just disconnect the engine from the transmission, and loosen the motor mounts and lift the engine partially away to replace the freeze plugs.
coolant leak between motor and transmission indicates you have a leaky freeze plug in the rear of the engine block
Some Pontiacs came from the factory with Chevy engines. If this is the case on your 79 firebird, then the transmission will bolt up to a 350 Chevy. If the car came with a Pontiac engine, then the bolt pattern is different and would not bolt up.
At minimum, removing the engine mounts is required to access the freeze plugs.
Motor oil does in fact freeze. Most motor oil never actually reaches the point where it is cold enough to freeze though.
They are on the front, back, and transmission sides of the block.
