do I have to pull the engine to replace a freeze plug on my 01 dodge?
No but you may have to disconnect the motor mounts, probably take off the top of the fan shroud, take off the distributor cap. possibly disconnect the exhaust depending on which one it is, & lift with a cherry picker,
it would be easier if you did
