Where do I fine the drain plug on radiator

Usually at the very bottom or bottom side of the radiator. Many newer vehicles no longer have this plug and you must use the lower radiator hose as the drain. Use caution when draining the radiator, remember that pets like the sweet taste of antifreeze and will be poisoned if consumed.

Place your bucket under the drain nossle and open that up. Let the coolant drain. When finished close both nossles.

If the radiator has not been replaced before or if it was put back the right way. Youre radiator hose clamps will be facing downward. Use some long needle mpse pliers to remove hose clamps and then remove the radiators hoses from radiator. Keep collection bucket under.

Once both sides of radiator hose are removed. Gently lift the radiator forward and upward to release the bottom of the radiator from where it is seated and then lower the radiator out the bottom.

Where is plug to drain the radiator?

Some models do not have a drain plug because they have a plastic radiator shell. If there is one, is should be by the lower raidator hose on the bottom of the shell. I usually just disconnect the lower radiator hose and let it drain from there.

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...

How change antifreeze in car raditor?

At the bottom of the radiator there is a plastic knob this is the petcock drain plug it can be hard to see and turn so you may need to jack up the front of the car a little to crawl under the front and look at the bottom of the radiator but if you can reach it from the top and turn it with a pair of pliers do so that way this will allow you to drain the radiator, remove the radiator cap if it has one to allow air to pass through radiator, if it has no radiator cap remove the cap on the radiator expansion reserve tank, after all antifreeze is drained turn petcock drain plug back in till tight then refill raidiator with 50% water 50% anti freeze mixture, start car and top off antifreeze run the car or drive for ten minutes then top off antifreeze.
