Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer
I looked, and the plug seems to be on the bottom passenger side, and there is a plastic stopper in it. A regular screwdriver would not work to open it up, did not try phillps head,,and not enought room to grab it with hand. May need a special tool to do it. So, need a way to open the drain **** with out breaking which a shop suggested it was easy to break and to just take off the hose and drain it that way.
There's no tab on it? That's odd. You should of been able to do it by hand..... Well then I suggest removing bottom radiator hose then. It's a hose about 3 inches thick with a hose clamp on each end. Since it's an 01 blazer, it might not have the usual screw clamp kind. Instead, it's like a spring clamp, sorry hard to explain. You'll see it wrap around the hose with two tabs sticking up. Grab a pliars and squeeze those tabs together. That will loosen the tension. Pull the clamp back by about 3 or 4 inches and then you should be able to grab the hose and start moving it around. CAUTION, make sure your grabbing just the hose, there is a spout where the hose goes on. You brake that spout, your looking at a big repair bill. Moving the hose around and pulling it backwards it should slip right off. If it dosn't, you either don't have the clamp back far enough or the hose is stuck. Yes that happens. You can get a hose pick, it's a like an ice pick but only with a couple bends in it so you can fit it between the spout and the hose to help brake it free. An old screw driver with a 90 or more bend in it should do the trick. Carefull not to puncture hose while using the pick/screwdriver. To reinstall hose, slip it on spout and put clamp back on the way you took it off. Using a pliars, but you might want both hands down there to help ya. Do you best to keep your fingers clear though, you don't want them in there if the pliars slip.
