There is no drain plug you will have to take the hose off the bottom to drain it then turn the engine over for just a few seconds then turn it off , this will pump out any other fluid

Let's assume your '02 is similar. After putting the van up on ramps I removed the bottom mud flap. It's rubber and is held in place with six 10 mm bolts. There is also an angle bracket attached to this flap in the center that latches to an overhead support, but there are no bolts on this bracket. The drain plug is on the right (passenger) side, pointing aft, and can be unscrewed by extending your right hand up from the bottom center. It's black and plastic and is meant to be unscrewed by hand. Next time I change the coolant I may try to unscrew what I think is the engine block drain bolt (looked like a 12 mm one). It is clearly visible with flashlight looking up from the bottom of the van toward the right hand side

The drain plug is most times white and would be on the bottom left or right corner of rad.but there are many vehicles that do not have a drain on the rad,yours may be one of them.remove lower rad hose to drain.leave rad cap on when removing lower hose,this way coolant will drain slower and will not make as much mess.hope this helps.

Where is radeator drain plug


Radiator drain plug is normally on the lower passenger corner of a radiator, it is also usually a petcock, some radiators do not have them. Just remember to remove the radiator cap, this will let the "hidden gallon" of antifreeze out

2002 kia sedona is loosing coolant.....within 2 days after filling the reservoir to FULL, it went a little more than halfway down to low . No leaking on ground. Sometimes smell coolant inside van after...


The heater core is leaking into the heaterbox under the dash. Which is why you smell antifreeze/coolant inside. After a while (if left go too long) you'll notice antifreeze on the floor/carpet and possibly running out from under the vehicle as it flows out of the drain for the air conditioner (the heaterbox has a drain in it to let out the moisture produced by the a/c)

Can I recharge the coolant in a 2006 Kia Sedona myself?


If you are talking about the radiator coolant then the best way is to drain old out, flush the system thoroughly then add 50/50 antifreeze back.

How do I drain the transmission fluid from the 2002 Kia sedona?


You need to loosen all of the bolts holding the pan on the bottom of the transmission and let it run out that way. There is no drain plug unfortunately.
