Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Ask Your Own Nissan Question

You just need the removal tool and the install tool for the new freeze plugs. Most parts stores have tools out for loan too.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

where is the freeze plug located?

All of them are on the lower side of the engine block, there should be 6 of them. You can easily see them if the car is in the air.

Thanks again, Ron

I am getting water leakage on top of engine, below intake manifold, Nissan 300 ZX

That can be several different things. You asked me about freeze plugs and I told you. You will need to add dye to the coolant, then check to see where the leak is at with a black light. These tools are also available at the parts store. I have to step out for about an hour now.

Thanks, Ron
