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.

It could be a freeze plug on the side of the engine block by the motor mount.

Front of the block, behind the motor mount.

At minimum, removing the engine mounts is required to access the freeze plugs.

typically they are located in the sides of the block on either side of a cylinder

There are 8 freeze plugs, 2 in the back of the block, 2 on each side of the block, and 1 on each side of the timing cover on the front of the block. There is 1 on each side of the block that is hidden behind the motor mounts.

The resistor block or blower motor resistor is used to control the speed of the blower motor. That is how you get the lower speeds on your air conditioning or heater. The higher the resistance the lower the speed of the motor.

The starting motor for a 1996 Neon is on the side of the engine block. The starter is at the rear at the transmission.

yes but you will have to use motor plates to install it in place of motor mounts.

Lower, rear, driver side of the block.

The Dodge Viper is unique, and unsuccessful some would say, because it has a motor unique, to itself. The V10. It makes the car nose heavy. Anyway, I do not know if Dodge calls it a big, or, small block. I do not think they classify it that way.

Yes, there is a freeze plug behind both mount brackets.

User Avatar

sure, just use motor plates to hold it in instead of motor mounts.

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.
