SOURCE: how to replace freeze plugs in 1998 ford explorer

make sure there is no material from the old plug left in the hole. clean inside hole with light grade emory cloth. put some hi-temp sealer on the mating surface of the plug. tap into place hollwed side out, edge flush with the engine surface. measure the hole precisely to get the correct size plug. access to hole may be limited.

i would check the plug wires and the coils you check the plug wires for bad spots at night start the motor up and look at the plugs if you see a spark arch out the wire and to a peace of metal then the plug wires need to be replace.

P1151 means a lean bank 2 O2 sensor
P1152 Means a rich bank 2 O2 sensor
P1309 Means miss fire detected
I would check your fuel injector for fouling
When they foul the will develop a drip
Causing a fuel fluctuation that will have O2 sensors reporting rich and lean voltage changes
This causes the pcm to adjust injector pulses making them shorter and longer.
causing more fuel or less fuel.
From this condition you may see plug fouling.
Also check for leaking or faulty fuel pressure regulator or restricted return line.
Most of the time it wont be a bad O2 sensor the O2 sensor is just doing its job.
You also have already changed the plugs and Map so there already out of the way.
If this helps please give me some feed back
Hope this works for you FixYa

SOURCE: How much would it cost to replace the freeze plugs

You would need to provide more information for an exact estimate such as auto or manual trans, trans model and engine size. I'll assume it's the most popular 4.0L with an auto trans and 4x4. The book time to remove the transmission (depends on which labor book) is 5.8 hours plus .3 flywheel removal plus approx .5 to replace the plugs. The cooling system will have to be purged of air .8 and the coolant should be replaced. Multiply 7.4 hours times the shop rate example: $99.00 per hour would be approx. $740.00 in labor plus parts. Freeze plugs are cheap and coolant will be approx. $25. Good luck :o)

Where is the freeze plug located


The engine in your Ford Explorer has freeze plugs, also called expansion plugs, mounted in the sides of the block. Freeze plugs are supposed to protect the engine block if the water in the engine freezes -- the expanded water is supposed to push out the freeze plug, although that doesn't always happen. Freeze plugs are made of thin steel compared to the engine block, and even with an anti-freeze mixture the plugs can rust out and require replacement.

Radiator fluid leaking from back of the motor


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

You may have worn out hose which can cause the coolant leak. I strongly suggest that you replace the hose to resolve the issue. The hose is surely secured by clams so you will need pliers to squeeze the **** then move it to let loose.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My ford expedition xlt is leaking coolant from behind the motor and over heating. i have already replaced the thermostat, and the water pump. i was told i may need to replace the freeze plug.


Could be one of the freeze plugs in the back of the block. You'd have to remove the transmission or motor to get to it. Also check the heater hoses at the firewall, the intake too. A mirror on and extension might help.

some times there behind motor mounts and other things you can purchase expadable rubber freeze plugs you might have to lift the motor a little but you shouldn't have to remove the motor unless you popped a freeze plug between the motor and transmision hope this helps

You Will have to take off the engine mounts. Place a piece of wood under where the tranny and the engine connect and lift it up.Then pop the freeze plug and put in a new one.they do have rubber ones too, youmay want to replace it with a heated one as well.

Need flat rate repair time for 1999 Ford Explorer. Replace transmission on 4x4. Vin code X . Chilton or Motors manual time OK


Contact a Ford dealership, and just ask them what they run general flat rate without any other issues on that job. Give them the same info you posted here. They should have the info in there database, and easily be able to check, they may need you whole VIN # because the computer software needs all of the package components to determine what flat rate is best specified. Good luck.
