Most of the freeze plugs are located in the engine block on both sides of the block. They may be of different sizes (diameters), there are usually a few smaller plugs in the cylinder head and or intake manifold. They are used to facilitate the casting process of the engine. They may rust out and leak if the cooling system is acidic or coolant becomes rusty.
