    Freeze out plugs!!!help fast

    I have a 4g64 es, on the back of the block underneath the intake manifold there are 4 freeze out plugs. Rusted out like you couldnt believe, tried using a punch to push them in a lil' and then spin them and pull out. LOL needless to say , u already know its never that easy. the center of the freeze out plug came out, but the collar of it is still attached to the wall of the opening. I realize I cant put a new one in until I get rid of that residual metal....I would like to get rid of it w/o removing the intake manifold. HELP

    This is going to be a PITA. Good luck on getting the freeze plug back in without disassembling the engine.

    im thinking
    -a metal file but i would have to file only the metal, but I am keeping in mind not file any of the blocks metal, but im not sure if thats gonna work.
    OR
    -torch the metal till it breaks free.(I would have to remove the intake manifold and remove all rubber hoses.

    dont use a metal file, you dont want to get any metal shavings in the water jackets behind those freeze plugs.

    no offense but you shouldnt have been messing with them in the first place. they werent leaking til you tried pulling them out, I know plenty of guys with motors with 200,000 miles and rusted ass freeze plugs with no problems.

    now on to the real problem, yeah you def need to remove the manifold. Your best bet is going to be using a small pry bar or flat head screwdriver to act as a lever and pry the edges of the "ring" outward until it falls out.
