The drain plug should be located on the drivers side on bottom of radiator. Should be a flat tab that you can use to unscrew it. Or the faster/messier way of doing it, is to pull of lower radiator hose. Alot faster but alot harder to catch coolant to reuse.

How to drain radiator 1998 chev blazer


Some years have drain plugs, others don't. Just unhook the bottom radiator hose to drain. OR, look on the passenger side, on the side of the radiator, up a few inches. Some models have plugs there.

Flush radiator


The easiest way to flush, if radiator is left in the vehicle, is to have the car at normal operating temperature, open the radiator drain, and put a garden hose into the cap opening. Turn it on till as much water enters the radiator as is leaving the drain. Run the engine as you are flushing, and run it till the water runs clean out the drain. Then shut off and refill with a 50-50 mix of water and antifreeze.
If you take the radiator off, you could run the hose into the bottom hose fitting and let it drain out the top hose fitting or the radiator fill neck. A simple back flushing method that may help dislodge and flush out any particles-but the first method should work well enough if your radiator is in good shape and not clogged up with rust and scale.

Drain bolt for radiator flush on a 2001 toyota celica


There is a drain in the side of the block normall near the back on the side. Sometime it is a tap that you screw in not out to open it. It is possible to flush without removing the plug but if you want a good job take the time to remove the thermostat and flush using the bottom radiator hose and not through the radiator as you won't want any muck blocking up the cores in the radiator. Then flush the radiator from bottom to top.

A diagram of the flushing of a radiator and block of a chevrolet blazer LS 2000


Theres no such thing as a diagram, here are the draining instructions, hope this helps...
  • 1-Place a large drain pan beneath the radiator drain plug. The drain plug is located on the passenger side at the very bottom of the radiator on the engine side.

  • 2-Make sure the engine is cool. Open the hood of the truck and remove the radiator cap.
  • 3-Loosen the drain plug. On the 2000 Blazer, the drain plug is a wing-nut type of plug. Twist it with your fingers until the coolant begins to drain.

  • *To flush the block, once you have drained the radiator, run the engine for a bit untill the temp gauge goes up to normal, then the coolant will have been evacuated from the block. DO NOT leave the engine on, once it reaches normal temp, (this will happen quick) turn off right away, otherwise you'll be forking out a few hundred $$$ to fix the worped heads.
    4-Tighten the drain plug with your fingers once the coolant has drained fully from the radiator. Remove the drain pan and dispose of the used coolant properly.
    Some service stations will take and recycle your used coolant.
    Hope this helps...

    Can you use a prestone flush and fill kit without opening the radiator drain **** or removing hoses?


    No, the flush kit is mounted on the heater hose and you need to drain the system. Removing the lower radiator hose and termostat is the best method for flushing draining the coolant system.

    How do i drain the radiator and flush out on a 1999 chevy blazer?


    open the drain valve on the bottom inside of the radiator, run the engine with the garden hose in the radiator cap, have the heater switched on high temp.  After the water comes out clean, turn off engine and let all water drain out.  Replace with 50/50 mix if distilled water and antifreeze.  Collect old antifreeze as it is very toxic and poisonous.

    Can not find drain for radiator


    The drain plug is on the passenger side below the lower radiator hose it face toward the motor. It is not that easy to access and when it drains it will probably go all over.
