Default 1992 explorer Freeze Plugs

Help do you really have to pull the engine ect just to put in new freeze plugs. My Mechanic says you need to but i read somewhere online that there is a small access hatch above the transmission. You can get at this hatch by cutting your carpet from the ashtray area to the center console and pulling it back. The hatch opens right over the rubber freeze plugs! Which one is true please help

Default RE: 1992 explorer Freeze Plugs

Freeze plugs in an engine are metal and floor plugs in the floor are rubber. Two different things shweeheart. Don't cut your carpet. Have the metal plugs replaced with brass ones if possible, and also have the cooling system flushed. The plugs are for the cooling system. I'm surprised you didn't notice any fluid leakage.
