Freeze Plug Replacement

I am needing to replace a freeze plug in a 1992 Lumina 3.1. I,ve been told that I will have to drop the engine out of the bottom of the vechile to do this. Does anyone know a easier way?

Depends somewhat on the location of the leaking plug. They can often be replaced in the vehicle. The hard part is often getting the old plug out. Installing an expanding rubber replacement plug is pretty easy once the old plug is out.

I wouldn't use one of those rubber plugs unless you absolutely have to. They've been known to pop right out and ruin an engine in the process. I'd use the brass or metal ones. The big thing with freeze plugs is just getting access to the one you want to change. I've never had to remove an engine to get one.
