Since it has been sitting for 3 years i would just get a starter at a junk yard. Pickup some starting fluid and see if it will run before you install new freeze plugs, let it run for a few minuates and cut it off so you dont burn it up. If the motor runs its worth putting freeze plugs in. Depends on the plugs that are poped, but you should be able to get one in without pulling the motor.

you can get to them all without pulling the motor,however, you might have to pull the tranny to get to the one on the rear of the engine.if the ones on the outside of the motor are good,then the one on the rear is good.Tell GTcoupe95 what a freeze plug is

Well in that case...uh.... no worries mate....I hope thats right. The reason for calling them "freeze"plugs is that they are primarily designed to push out instead of cracking the block when some body forgets to add antifreeze in winter in some of our colder climates.

Thats the secondary reason , it mostly allows clearing of the blocks after casting .
