Freeze Plugs

Does anyone know how many freeze plugs (all) I need for a 1999 Sport, 4.0L, I6, 4WD, etc...

I think I need 1, so I'm replacing (or having replaced) all of them. Any help is much appreciated.

I think there are 3 or 4. Why not just go count them?

Even better, does anyone know where to get the set. Even the dealers where I am don't seem to be sure about what I need (or how many anyway). There are different sizes though and they supposedly come in a kit.

Thanks for any help.

Ya a couple of mine are leaking and they're a PITA to get out and the new ones in so I haven't tackled it yet but I just called my dealership and asked if they had any and went and picked them up along with a new gasket. Sometimes they're called core plugs or soft plugs so if your dealer doesn't know freeze plugs try those names.

Just got the kit for my engine rebuild. You can get this kit for around $35 at most parts store. I ordered them from NAPA, they were the only ones that carried it in brass. Brass will last longer than stainless. The kit comes with all the smaller plugs that are in the head. Problem is, they do not include 2 of the plugs, the ones in the rear on the head and block.

If you wanted the larger ones for the block only, they are something like 70 cents each at Auto Zone or advance in stainless steel. 2" freeze plugs. That's all you'll need.

If memory serves, there are 3 or 4 in the side, and 1 in the rear.
