I cannot direct you how - however, I can say I had my freeze out plug go (and there are four) on my 1998 Ford Taurus. They are easy to replace as my mechanic said; however, in my car - due to the location - behind engine - the trans had to be removed. I got 3 quotes ranging from $750 - $1300. Might as well service the trans at that point as well and replace the other plugs.
