I need to know the locations of the plugs, and if I will either have to drop the motor or transmission

Do you
have the same problem?

What's wrong with the freeze plugs? Is it leaking?

Yeah, don't know which one or ones. It's my father-in-laws truck. I'm trying to get it back going, so I can use it. He told me to just go ahead and replace all of them, just to be on the safe side, because all of them are worn out.

This will depend on who dose it, qualified mechanic with a well equipped work shop may take a good 10-12 Hrs to do all the plugs including R&R engine, I would ring around for a few quotes first.
