This is a service hose intended to drain coolant into a receptacle (bucket) during service. the hose attaches to a fitting on the bottom of the radiator drain valve. when not in use it is simply folded back through the hole in the splash panel, if equipped with a panel. if no panel exists then the tube simply hangs from the drain valve.

1999 chevy express van.I have two hoses that run off of my reserve tank one of the goes to the radiator. and another hose that looks like it goes on the acumlator


From the reserve tank, one hose should go to the radiator and the other should be for overflow. Sometimes that one goes to an accumulator, sometimes its left dangling cause its just there to drain any excess fluid from expansion in a hot system. Depends on the vehicle. If its in an enclosed system or plugged you would get an excess of back pressure which would further heat up the coolant and inhibit flow. Just leave it there. If it pukes coolant when hot then its doing its job. Don't overflow your reserve tank.

2000 Chysler LHS Radiator drain won't drain


I had the drain plug changed out on my town and country van by the dealer for a total of $30 If you have loosened it and have not re-tightened it, don't drive it like that because sure as heck it will cut loose and you'll burn up an engine. Good luck

Flushing antifreeze on a 2006 kia sorento


This procedure makes a bit of a mess and requires catch pans but it is the best way to flush a coolant system without cutting any hoses or adding a flush kit.


If your radiator does not have a drain plug is to remove the LARGE lower radiator hose and drain the anit-freeze. (Even if it does have a drain plug the steps below are the best way) You then plug the lower radiator hose connection on the radiator and have a 2nd person add water to the radiator with a hose. They will need to place a rag over the fill port for the radiator and flush the block until you get clear water from the lower drain hose. Once you get clear water drain off the fresh water by unblocking the lower radiator fitting and flush the radiator. Once you get cleanwater from the radiator connection, reconnect your lower radiator hose. (Tighten the clamp!) Then add your anti-freeze. Remember there will still be a some water in the block so do not be afraid to keep your anit-freeze / water ratio a tad higher because the left over water in the block will dilute it slightly.

I have a 1995 buick century. i want to flush radiator, but i couldn't located the draining valve. i need a help, if you can locate the draining valve for radiator.


Hi, if there is not a petcock or plug at the bottom of the radiator, you can just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant. Many cars do not have drain plugs. Please let me know if you have more questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the radiator drain plug on a 1993 Toyota Corolla?


Hi there,

For most Toyota radiators I know, the plug is in the center at the bottom of the radiator housing. If you cannot locate it, then simply remove the bottom radiator hose to drain the radiator. Keep in mind that you may need to replace the hose clamp if it has the one-use factory style clamp.

The drain plug is directly below your upper radiator hose at the bottom of the radiator. You can start by disconnecting the battery ground cable.

Hope this helps...

Where's the drain plug on radiator?


Coolant drain plug is below where the inlet hose (the big one on top) goes to the radiator on the very bottom pointing down!
The metal lines are on this side as well...
Best of luck!

HOW TO CHANGE THERMOSTAT ON THE V-6


First make sure engine is cool.
-Put drain pan under car, coolant will run out.
-Remove the TOP radiator hose that runs to the metal thermastat housing. Coolant will now be running out, try and direct it to the drain pan below.
-Remove the thermastat housing, BEFORE removing the thermastat make sure you TAKE NOTE at how it is situated in the casting.
- Take the thermastat housing and run a wire brush on the flat spot were the old gasket material is.
-Both mating sides of the thermastat housing MUST BE PERFECTLY CLEAN. There can not be any old gasket material left.
-Insatll new thermastat.
-Put a very light amount of PERMATEX orange high temp. silicone on BOTH sides of the new gasket.
-Put a small amount on bolt threads also.
-Now install thermastat housing, and bolts.
-Tighten bolts down a little at a time, alternating between the two, unitl till they are tight.
-Install the radiator hose, and tighten hose clamp.
-Remove radiator cap, pour in coolant, until it sits just below the radiator cap neck. This may take a little time as the system has some air in it.
-Install the radiator cap. Make sure you radiator overflow tank is filled properly.
-Remove the drain pan, make SURE ALL the tools use used are secure, and out of the engine bay.
-Start engine, and place your heater control to 'HEAT"
-Let engine run until the top radiator hose is hot, which means you thermastat has opened.
-Keep watching the engine temp AT ALL TIMES, we wnat to make sure there is no air in the system.
-Inspect for any leaks. Now when the top radiator hose is hot make sure the hose clamp is tight.
Please let me know how it goes.
