right, i know i have to pound them in, so what makes that plug special compared to the regular pound in plugs? how do you get that one in? that's what i'm saying. i'm only gonna replace the ones i have to/can get to for now. from what i visible saw, the visible plugs were still in good shape. i just want to get this one replaced & my coolant system/passageways flushed of all that bad nasty coolant that was in there. it looks like my motor shit itself from the side of the block. ill check these plugs out if theyre easier to install. thank you.Regular core plugs are a press fit - they need to be pounded in with a hammer and a socket/pin of the correct size to fit inside the cup.
All of the core plugs were replaced on my truck, with the engine in the truck...just not all at the same time!
I did replace the ones on the back of the block - just not at the same time as the rest of them. I replaced the ones in the head, front of block, and sizes of the block at one time, then when I replaced my clutch (a few k miles later), I replaced the ones on the back of the block. Didn't see a lot of interest in pulling the transmission until I needed to, since the rear plugs were not leaking yet
