its just a factory drilled hole on back of casted block behind the passengers side cylinder head. it is on all 4.7 dodge v8 engines. i looked a a few other engines . it is real close to the top about 1 inch from bellhousing. seems it could open up inside of hole to maybe the rear of engine

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central. Please make sure to let me know exactly what is needed from me so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service.

I have included an image below.

If its either of these then it can be a dummy plug or the freeze plug.


On your screen you should see a rating 1-5 stars. Please make sure to select one. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.

Thanks Chris
