Where is the freeze plug?

Can't find anything about the freeze plug in the Honda Accord manual.

Is there a diagram here anywhere that will show where it is once we get underneath?

They are "core plugs" and are use to fill up the hole when they cast the block.

Why are you looking for them, maybe we can help you if you explain your problem.

88 Honda Accord sat for two years. Owner gave the car to a friend who is working on the car here.

Quite certain the head is cracked.

Antifreeze pours out when the car is started. wanted to make sure it's not coming out the freeze plug.

Car exhaust is lots of white smoke so we know there is a big problem.

Hoping to not have to replace the entire motor, although a junk yard long block motor may be the easier option, except we'll have to get the car 45 minutes away for the best person to do the job for the best price.

You need to check the block it may be cracked.

The reason they are incorrectly refered to as "freeze plugs" is that some times when the block freezes they are pushed out. Thats not their intended purpose.

If the head is cracked most likely the block is too. It most likely had wrong mixture of anti-freeze and water.
