There is more than one frost plug, and they are not really for indicating a frozen block. They were part of the sand casting process for the engine block, but also can serve to indicate a frozen water jacket. They can also simply rust out. Several are located behind the bell housing and are very hard to get at without pulling the engine, not the $200 type. Others require less disassembly, thus less expensive.
