Coolant leak

I have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler Rio grande 2.5l automatic. And I have a coolant leak between the engine and the frame. I changed out the freeze plug on just one of the slots because it blew out on the drivers side of the engine. I dont wanna pull the engine out unless I need to, any advice would be greatly appreciated thank you in advance.

Welcome to the Forum Dagan19921,

We need a bit more info.
1- Which side?
2- Is the leak coming from another freeze plug?
3- Your local auto parts store might have an additive that goes in the coolant and then you drive the vehicle until it's warm. Then look for the leak with a black light.
4- Can you post a couple good pics of where the leak is?

Good Luck, L.M.
