There should be a drain valve at the lower corner of one side of the radiator. If not, then you may have to disconnect the lower coolant hose and drain the liquid contents from there. You may want to flush out your radiator while you are changing the coolant by using a garden hose and running water through the system as it drains out the bottom.

Coolant drain plug location


If you can't find the drain plug, maybe there isn't one. Put a container under the hose you need to change. Undo the clips at each end and pull the hose off one end. Point the loose end of the hose so the coolant goes into the container you put under the car. Replace the hose with the new one, do the clips up and then pour the coolant back in to the system (IF it is clean and not full of bits of dirt etc!) If it is dirty, then use clean water and antifreeze to make a 50 / 50 mixture and fill the system with that. Be careful not to pour the mixture in too quickly or you will make an air lock in the system.

Trouble draining coolant on 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis


The engine holds coolant and so does the heater core, the core not much but the engine holds maybe 2 or so gallons, the engine has coolant in the intake ,heads and block. to say you can drain it all complete is impossible, unless you find drain plugs on the side of the engine block and remove them, there is one on each side of the block, if you removed those you would get 90% of the coolant,with also draining the radiator. the only other way would be with a flush machine. i am a tech and the way you said the coolant was clean and you drained all you could then i would say if you keep doing it the way you are you will be fine, i drain mine the same way every year which is to soon for some but not me and i have never had a problem. the only time i drain the blocks at work is when people dont change the coolant for years and it gets rusted, then i remove the plugs. keep doing the flush the way you are and it will be fine, good day. have a good day.

How to do a coolant change for a altima 2004


Make sure the engine is cold before you change the coolant.
Open the hood, place a container under the radiator, and look for the drain-plug under the radiator. Remove it by turning it counterclockwise. Remove the radiator cap. Once coolant drained out, replace the drain-plug, and put in fresh coolant. You might also remove the coolant reservior and empty it.

Trying to change coolant


If drain is difficult to reach or won't open properly, remove the lower radiator hose. You can easily drain system from there. Make sure you use a good drain pan and that the engine is cool. Once removed coolant comes out really fast from there.
