      Comments about Dorman - Autograde Steel Cup Expansion Plug 1-1/4 In., SC, Height 0.300:

      The driver side plug is bigger than the passenger side on the front below the timing chain cover. Book says they are the 1.25" which is wrong. The Driver side is the one that has failed on my truck.

          A:

          Expansion plugs can cause coolant loss if they go bad, but we can not properly diagnose why you are losing coolant in your vehicle without the presence.

          A:

          555-030 is about .5 inches larger than 555-024. That is why it will not fit.

          A:

          The two main causes that I can think of is either the fan that moves air across the condenser is not working properly or you are low on freon.

          A:

          The expansion plugs are all around on the engine block. They need to be knocked out and then hammered in. The skill level that is needed to perform this task is high. I recommend you take this vehicle to mechanic.
