lower your coolant level to below the plug that you will be working on.drive out the old one using punch and a hammer (have pliers handy) careful not to get it stuck and or drop too much metal shavings in to the engine (cooling system damage). clean the area/hole. drive in the new plug. use something to help you push the plug in evenly. ''THE NEW PLUG MUST BE THE SAME SIZE AS THE OLD ONE AND IT MUST BE INSTALLED PROPERLY AND GO IN EVENLY, FLUSH WITH ENGINE BLOCK''

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

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.

Freeze plugs are located on the sides of the engine block to allow for the expansion of the coolant if it should freeze. Without them the engine block could crack. They do not normally have to be replaced unless they begin to leak from corrosion or external damage.

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

If you are referring to plugs in the engine block, sometimes called freeze plugs, they are used to remove sand from the casting when the engine block is cast. They are not freeze plugs and serve no purpose after manufacture.

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.
