Re: [Chrysler300] Freeze plug





Ray
Where do you buy "Marine" Brass plugs? are they the same heat ratings as automotive plugs? Interesting, just curious.

I have a tool with a ball joint and screw on plug drivers in various sizes.
You do not have to be square to the plug to drive it in.
I also use Marine Brass plugs. They will not rust, which is what makes the old plugs fail.

Went through this too...stock ones can be a problem ,---My .02, OK if done
outside car by a real , experienced pro, but might be hard in place in a
car, do not know specific answer , depends a bit on specific plug, but Hot
Heads makes a T shaped thing for replacing bang in core plugs that works
like a molly bolt --no hitting with hammer, which would be the problem in
the car. Even if you tried to do that, ? always ---was it really hit right.
It overheats SO fast if a plug pops, can damage engine in minutes, as water
drops fully out of heads. I would go with Hot Heads core plug, gasket and
nut you just tighten. . .

To All, Have the C in the shop and while they were testing driving lost a
freeze plug. Told it is on drivers side and steering box/starter are in the
way. Is it necessary to pull the engine??

As Always Thanks for the Great Support.
