They make a temporary rubber plug that tightens up and expands. That will get you buy for a while. Why do you have to replace freeze plugs?

well, i think (and hope) its a freeze plug. i have a coolant leak and its on the drivers left side of the engine. the car overheats pretty quickly when i drive and it steams and boils and coolant leaks out in an almost steady flow. my only three guesses were that it was a freeze plug, head gasket, or a cracked water journal. if its a cracked water journal then im just gonna say fuck it cause i cant afford to fix that. even welding it would require the engine being taken out of the car. and a new block after the machining and all is said and done would be a few grand. so idk help is appreciated.

If you pop a freeze plug it is usually something major that causes it. I would lean more toward a bad gasket or hose.

It wouldn't hurt to change your coolant temp sensor either. Freeze plugs don't usually have to be replaced.
