The steel freeze plug is better than a brass freeze plug. This is because the steel freeze plug can withstand high temperature from the engine block. Moreover, the steel freeze plugs usually fit very well.
no such thing,freeze in plug

Pressure in the motor building up, using straight water instead of anti freeze, or having a blown head gasket or cracked head would cause a freeze plug to blow out. Better take it to a mechanic and have them look at it.
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!!!!
Locate the bad freeze plug and remove parts that impede the facilitation of reaching the plug. Take a screwdriver and hammer out the old plug. Replace the plug with either a regular plug (a socket that fits the inside of the freeze plug helps) or a rubber expanding freeze plug.
Expansion plug, or core plug.

First check and see if there is a pouch located directly beside your battery. If there is a pouch it will contain a plug that is for the factory engine block heater. If there is no plug then you can pursue an aftermarket type. There are several types. If you want to use a freeze plug block heater, you'll need to have someone help you remove a freeze plug. That usually requires that you remove a lot of the peripheral equipment until you can get a clear access to one of the freeze plugs. Measure the freeze plug then go to an auto parts store and purchase a freeze plug block heater of that specific size. Once you have one that will fit into the hole, you can drill a hole in the freeze plug, then use a prying instrument to remove the old freeze plug. The block heater freeze plug usually goes in with a nut to tighten the freeze plug into the hole. BTW, you'll get a lot of antifreeze all over when you do this, and plan on taking your time since it will be time consuming.
The hardest part of the job is GETTING TO the freeze plug. Depending on which one is leaking, sometimes you need to pull quite a bit of stuff just to get to the freeze plug. You need to be able to examine it and have clear access to the freeze plug and if it's one of the rear plugs (under the flywheel), you're only option is to pull the engine and/or transmission. Once you can get to it, just drive a screwdriver or other sharp object through the freeze plug and pry it out. Clean the block around the freeze plug then install one of the aftermarket types, preferably one that allows you to tighten a bolt to install it. You'll have trouble getting an original type freeze plug to seal if you don't have the engine block sitting on a workbench. Any time you have an engine machined, always replace the freeze plugs.

do I have to drain the water and oil first before I remove the freeze plug
They vary. The year, make, model, engine and freeze plug location info is necessary to answer.
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.
The engine will leak out coolant/antifreeze from the freeze plug area. Freeze plugs can be replaced, it may take a lot of work to replace one but they are made to be replaceable. It is not advisable to drive any vehicle with a blown freeze plug.
A bad freeze plug will leak coolant and cause the engine to overheat.
the car is smoking on the left side is it the freeze plug?
there is not just 1 freeze or (soft) plug, there is about 8 give or take a few
If it is a freeze plug it would not have threads. Freeze Plugs are designed to pop out of the block should the water in the block freeze. This could not happen if the plug was threaded. Hope This Helped.
If it's out of a freeze plug you might want to take care of it yourself. Sometimes if you don't keep good antifreeze in an engine the freeze plug will rust through and start leaking. Sometimes they just start leaking anyway. If you can get the old freeze plug out and get the surfaces clean you might be able to put in one of the replacment type freeze plugs. That part isn't too hard, it just depends on where the freeze plug is.
no withou a freeze plug the water will escape the engine and cause it to over heat.
