As in most designs, the radiator drain plug would be at the lowest part of the radiator. However, in some instances, it would not be readily accessible due to some other components such as a skid plate, fan cover brackets and others. An alternative is to loosen the lower radiator hose (radiator end) which should serve the same purpose.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The radiator drain plug is on the bottom right or left of the radiator facing the engine. On my PT Cruiser, it is on the driver's side.

I need to drain my radiator on a 2002 jeep grand cherokee

On many of these, the drain is on the right front of the radiator, sometimes requiring removal of a small panel in the grille or the entire grille. The ones I've serviced, after geting to the drain I've found that it dosen't turn. It is far easier to ignore the drain altogether and remove the lower hose at the radiator. Don't do this on a hot engine unless you like hot antifreeze baths! (I don't)
Good luck

I have a 2001 Jeep Cherokee and I can't go from 4 to 2 there anything external to look at on the transfer case? Or any other suggestions. Thanks....

Try going in reverse while shifting the t-case to 2wd. Other than the linkage falling off, the problem could be in the t-case itself. Check the oil level on the t-case by removing the upper plug(there are two plugs, one is the lower drain and the upper is the fill). The fluid level is when the fluid is level with the bottom of the hole. The jeep takes auto trans. fluid in there.

the drain plug should be a turn key spout on the lower driver side of the radiator.
