if the thermostat is in the head at the top radiator hose , remove it an fill the cooling system until the water is at that point --refit the thermostat and continue filling
make sure that the heater is turned on so that any air is moved out of the system
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
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.
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.
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 reservoirwith a hose as well..
