SOURCE: radiator flush

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.

SOURCE: Where is the radiator drain valve located on the

I First, you must remove the black air deflctor that runs underneath the radiator across the car. Maybe about 8 bolts. Even then I couldn't find the drain plug at first. It is on the driver's side. Beneath the radiator there is a heavy metal Mounting bracket. Almost looks like a crossmember. About an inch in from the left (driver's) side bottom of the bracket there is a large round hole with a rubber grommet. In the center of this hole it the outlet of the drain. If you reach directly above it on the back side of the radiator, i.e. come around back on the bracket and looking forward, you will find the drain ****. It is black plastic and has 2 ****, not a full petcock handle. It is still hard to see, even after removing the air deflector. The air deflector is the one people knock off by running too far forward when parking. I hope this helps .Remember the 2 or 3 vents at top of radiator hoses when refilling the system.
The radiator does have a hard to see drain plug on the left drivers' side. There are 5 10MM screws holding the air deflector on. The block has removable plugs, one 14MM hex next to the oil filter and one in about the same location on the other side of the block toward the firewall under the exhaust manifold.

SOURCE: where is the radiator drain plug located on a 97

It's located on the drivers side of the radiator opposite of the lower radiator hose. Note: you may be better off disconnecting the lower radiator hose, it's common for the drain plug to break or the O-rings to split causing more work to drain the radiator. That's why most tech's will drain the radiator from the lower radiator hose, less chance of breaking the radiator drain plug and most new cars now don't come with a drain plug to the radiator.

Need to flush radiator on my 2003 chevy malibu


Radiator is in front of the engine with the silver cap. Do not open it while hot. Drain is on bottom of radiator usually on passenger side. Also note that there is a high point air vent bleeder screw on top of the block that needs to be opened to bleed air from the coolant system, otherwise engine will overheat. And do not let you pets drink the anti-freeze since it is toxic.

Replaceing freeze plugs in the back of a side motor in a 2001 chevy malibu


1) Drain all coolant from the engine/radiator.
2) Drill a hole in the old plug to allow you to thread a lag bolt, which will then be used to pull the old plug out. Or use whatever means you can to remove the old freeze plug.
3) Thoroughly clean the hole with a wire brush attached to a drill motor.
4) Apply sealant to new freeze plug and locate into the hole.
5) Tamp the plug into the hole, flush with the block, with a hammer.
6) Refill radiator with coolant.
7) Check for leaks.

This isn't going to be easy with the engine in the car, but it can be done.

Your fan motor might be fried... and check your coolant, they have a tool which measures its ability to do its job. you might need a radiator flush but start small... THe tool to make sure you anti-Freeze is good is very cheap. By one and test it (it tells you how to test it) then check your fuzes for your Radiator fans in your owners manual. if that is good take your fans off and have them tested. you need to get your fans working again even if you need to by new. And see if your car needs a coolant flush, ( a true flush not a drain and fill
