Ratchet, 3 or 6 inch extension, universal joint, and 3/4 inch or 19mm socket.
The plug is on passenger side of radiator on the engine side. The socket fits over the drain plug, turn counterclockwise to open or remove. On a Cirrus, it is difficult to reach, so I had to use a universal joint to reach it. I think the manual calls for a 19mm socket-mine was rounded off-a 3/4 in. socket worked.

    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.

    How do you drain the radiator on a 2001 blazer


    There is drain plug on the drivers side of the radiator at the bottom, but the safest way is to just remove the lower radiator hose on the passenger side to drain the radiator. The drain plug is plastic and it may crack due to time and heat and you'll have to buy a replacement radiator drain plug, for this reason most newer radiator don't come with a drain plug and if you want one you'll have to install the drain plug kit. If your radiator doesn't have a drain plug then you have the newer radiators install already as the older radiators we still being installed until they were all gone and the new ones were installed.
    Thank you for using Fixya.

    My 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 liter is leaking coolant from what appears to be the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.I have to replace about 2 quarts of fluid after a short drive.And no one has drained...


    The Drain Plug aka Radiator Drain **** has an o-ring on it that does wear-out over time, causing a leak. You can remove and replace these relatively ease. They only turn 1/4th to 1/3rd Counterclockwise to Open and Clockwise to Close. Work on only when the engine is cool. Leave the cap on the radiator to create a suction, decreasing the amount of radiator fluid you will lose. OR drain the Radiator Fluid into a clean container and save for reuse.
    Have the new Radiator Drain **** ready for immediately insertion after removing the other leaking Radiator Drain ****. To Remove:
    Twist the Radiator Drain **** counterclockwise and pull, continuing to twist counterclockwise removing it.
    Immediately install the new Radiator Drain **** by first pushing in and then twisting clockwise to close.
    Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

    How do I get to the radiator drain plug? 2003 Astro Van


    Great news for you, the best way to drain the radiator is to remove the lower radiator hose. The bad news is that OEM radiator came with no drain plug and you can have one put in after you remove the radiator to drill a hole and tap in a $6.00 radiator drain plug for NAPA auto parts. Good luck and hope this helps. this was a way for GM to save money by one less parts to have make, since most auto mechanic just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the radiator. Good luck and hope this helps. If your luck and your Astor does have one, you can find the drain plug on the lower drivers side of the radiator, engine side.

    Where is drain plug for 1998 dakota 4x4 i need to drain radiator &what is the turning thing on the lower drivers side of radiator 4


    1998 dakota 4x4
    You can remove the drain plug in the bottom on the radiator.
    You can remove the lower radiator hose. Since the vehicle is 10 years old you may want to inspect the hoses for replacement anyway.

    ) Make sure the vehicle is cool.
    ) Slightly loosen the radiator cap to release any pressure.
    ) Re-tighten the radiator cap.
    ) Place a suitable container under the drain point.
    ) open the drain.
    ) Re-loosen the radiator cap again.
    ) Allow to drain.
    ) REPLACE THE DRAIN PLUG.
    * At this point the radiator can be fill with water and a radiator cleaning agent- run the engine - allow to warm up.
    * Re-drain the radiator - .
    ) REPLACE THE DRAIN PLUG.
    ) Refill the radiator with water/anti-freeze.
    ) Dispose of waste fluid according to the local regulations. Some city dumps will accept it. Some parts stores may accept it. Do not pour down the drain or dump on the ground.
