Have a look at bottom, on side of end tank, backside corner or sometimes even under, with access hole in frame. They make them a real pain to find and get to now for some reason. I guess so the average person will pay someone to do it?

Where is radiator drain plug 02 dodge dakota


This is a post on the Dakota forums:
My 2001 Durango and 2002 Dakota they use the same radiator. You'll have the same setup. I have recent and intimate knowledge of draining them. Crawl under the left front of the truck and look up at the bottom of the radiator. At the bottom of the driver side radiator tank (facing toward the fender) is a 3/4" long flat handled plug. Twist your hand (with a pair of pliers) up there from the back side of the bumper fascia. Grip it and give it a 180* counterclockwise twist. It is now opened and draining out the little nipple sticking straight down from the bottom of the side tank. You can stick a 5/16" (or 3/8") hose onto the nipple to drain it into a bottle or pan without making a mess.

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 engine coolant drain plug located on 3.4


Should be at the bottom of the radiator. If you are unable to find it, just disconnect the bottom radiator hose, from the radiator, and reconnect it once finished draining.

I am draining the coolant for maintenance. I have relieved the lower corner of the radiator. I am having problems locating the block drain plugs.


don't worry about the block drains. just flush through the radiator opening. Replace with 50/mix of anti freeze and DISTILLED water

Where is the drain plug for the radiator


Should be a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator that unscrews out. It looks like a wing nut has been welded to a bolt on the end of it. Another way to do this is just pull off the bottom hose.

Where is the radiator drain for 2005 ford focus


Yours is Located on the DRIVERS SIDE FACING the Engine and Just ABOVE its RUBBER RESTING MOUNT. This is Visual only after REMOVING the UNDERGAURD SHIELD, (PLASTIC) Some are MUCH more Difficult to Access than the LOWER RADIATOR HOSE, Thus Making the Radiator Hose the BETTER Choice in Draining the Cooling System. Using a LARGE DRAIN PAN I Find it EASYER to Use the Lower Hose for Draining the System.
