    Hello. I recently moved to a colder state and as I have usually used a lower mix of coolant when it froze i blew the driver’s side freeze plug under the motor mount can I repair this my self and is there a way to do it that doesn’t involve dismantling half the engine and lifting it up. thanks in advance

    There are rubber freeze out plug replacements that once installed you use a wrench to tighten them into place. (quick and dirty fix)
    No promises on how long it will last though.
    The preferred method would be to install a OEM metal plug.
    As to how easy or difficult, you’ll need to get your eyes on the area.
    You say it by the motor mount.
    If so.. you may need to support the engine with a piece of wood and a floor jack and remove the motor mount to gain enough access to R&R the plug.

    Ok, ya that’s what I thought. I’m going to try to remove the mount 1st. But I’m going to buy a rubber one just in case. Would you possibly have a link to the correct one for me. Thank you in advance.
