Is there a radiator drain plug or petcock on a 2009 Chevy Traverse?


no there is a drain , its just towards the center from the bottom outlet hose , it doesn't look too much llike a drain , as its black and is down inside a well (this guides the coolant out) the well is about 3/4 inch deep and the drain plug turns via a tiny wing nut

How to drain coolant


They do clog up and will not drain. You probably found the drain. Pull the lower radiator hose. If you have access to air and can shoot it up in the hole. This might help you problem.

Coolant commodore


Don't mix coolants brands. best to drain and flush the radiator and block don't forget to flush the heater also. refill with the best coolant you can find. run engine to working temp and top up radiator . don't forget to flush the overflow tank.

Need to change coolent in radiater ,does this take a special kind of coolent and do i need to use a special type of radiater flush. Also is there a drain on the radiater?


You don't need to use a special kind of radiator flush, but the coolant is called DEX COOL. It's made by prestone specifically for GM engines, you can get it at walmart for like 5 bucks.

Want to change out coolent in radiator myself is it a wise choice


Things you will need:
Radiator coolant mixture (get from garage)
Radiator flush fluid (also from garage)
Distilled water (Or if your me garden hose water ;) )

Take off the radiator cap when engine is COOL. Find the drain plug located in the bottom of the radiator (normaly hand tight) and let it drain out into a catch container. Put the drain plug back in, follow the instructions on the flush container topping the radiator back up. Let engine run as directed on bottle and then carefuly undo the radiator cap using a rag as not to burn yourself. Then remove the plug again and drain out the flush fluid. Then repeat the process with the radiator fluid as instructed on the bottle.

Washer fluid in the coolent


if u didn't run the engine no, just use a hose and flush tank, if u did run the engine just drain and refill the radiator with 50/50 solution of long life antifreeze, also flush the coolant reservoir with a hose as well..
