There is only 1 of 4 that you can get to without pulling the manifolds. Use a punch to knock one side into the block. Don't worry about bending it; that's what you want. Don't punch it too far it; you have an alloy block; not steel. The plug will turn sideway and you can pull it out with pliers. Cover the edge of the new one with RTV gasket maker and tap it in (flush with the block) with a socket the size of the inside of the plug.

Where is a freeze plug on a 1984 Toyota van and how do you change it?

Freeze or expansion plugs are located at various places through the engine block in the event that the block does freeze it will hopefully push a plug out before the block cracks. Depending on the leaking one, you need to locate it, remove anything that obstructs you from accessing it first. You have to use a litle creativity on how you get it out. A punch or a chisel is my prefered tool choice. After you get it out, use a block of wood to seat the new one in. Or you can you a rubber one that it expanded with a socket.
