1. Freeze Plug Leaks??

    I have a 76 CJ7. Just yesterday while it was running i had a huge gush of coolant come out but i could not tell form where, by the time i lifted the hood it had drained and i couldn't see, after refilling the coolant it has yet to gush out again. but now i see a small drip from around the back freeze plug dripping on to the starter. Any one have any ideas on what could be happening.

    Freeze plugs can corrode when vehicles get old. Vehicles like 35 year old Jeeps.

    if you have good access to the freeze plug you could drill a small hole in it to be able to screw in a small slid hammer to remove it than clean up the port you can use either one of those rubber expandable plugs or a stock metal one that you would need to tap in with a light plastic mallet
