I have a 2000 Dodge Durango. Mechanic states a freeze plug is corroded and will cost $450 plus tax to replace. States the other 9 freeze plugs will also go bad shortly and that it will cost $450 plus tax PER plug which will be over $4500. He and the owner of Christian Bros. recommended that I just replace the one and get rid of the vehicle and get a new one. Your opinion please. I know the plug is only about $1 each.


So one bad one dollar freeze plug, and they want $4500 to replace all 10? Shawn, I would run so fast from that place...Ya know, if they did all they had to do to get to one plug (that\\'s $450, ok,), then the other plugs on that side of the engine w ... Dodge Cars & Trucks

1992 Dodge Dakota , 6 cyl ... Had freeze plug blow this winter.. Replaced freeze plug just above the starter. Engine was started for a few minutes but not taken anywhere.

If i drain the oil and leave oil plug off. then fill radiator with water will I see water flowing from drain plug? If I dont is there a chance it will be ok? Is there a chance


Try changing the oil and then see what happens, best guess is a head gasket, the dodges rearly crack heads but do blow head gaskets, lets hope that the watter in the oil is just condensation and that it will be ... Dodge Dakota

My 2000 chrysler cirrus had a small undetectable water leak. My mechanic 1st said it was the freeze plugs rusted, then he replaced the radiator cap, thermostat, and gasket seal. I drove it 20 miles and it ran water and antifreeze all over the driveway. He put it on a lift and the water just kept running out in 3 places. Now he says he replaced the water pump, 4 freeze plugs and is waiting on some long tube. Am I getting a snow job or what?
