93 Mustang 5.0 Freeze plug need help asap!


I was wondering if there is a freeze plug behind the alternator bracket, I have some coolant leaking from there.
Thank you so much.

sounds like you might be leaking coolant from the intake, thermostate housing, or possibly water pump

Looks like its one of the freeze plugs in the head from what I can tell by that pic. Do you have one a little further away?

Pound it


Best bet is to pound it with a hammer or a punch and get it to turn. Once it turns, or disintigrates, pry it out of the head. It looks pretty rusty so it might just disintegrate to the point where u can pry it out with a screwdriver. Once its out its as simple as calling ur local parts store and either ordering the SPECIFIC one for the cylinder head OR you can get the generic, "one size fits all and leaks usually" one. When you go to put it in, it looks pretty small so just use a socket that fits just barely inside of the plug and pound it in till its flush. Obviously clean it up once its out and maybe even put a little anti seize on the edges of the new ones to help with the install! Let us know how it goes and good luck! be glad it wasn't the freeze plug in a much harder spot!.
