a freeze plug ---on side of motor ----stop droving it --- you will worpe heads --- or burn up engine ---get it fixed -- parts are CHEAP-- buy brass --they last forever


if you do it your self --- drive top or bottom in with hamer & chisel ,, then grab the top or bottom thats sticking out with chanel locks and roll them out .... clean surfices with sand paper,,,, use a socket that fits inside of new BRASS freeze plugs to tap them in


Dont drive the car , i repeat don't drive the car....
