SOURCE: Trying to flush the radiator--cannot find the bleed valve for coolant.

The drain should be on the drivers side at the bottom of the radiator, facing the driver. It's a plastic "wing" that unscrews. There should also be a bleeder for exhausting the air from the system when you refill. The bleeder I'm familiar with is a brass screw screwed into the thermostat housing. (where the top hose attaches at the engine)

SOURCE: where is the radiator drain plug on a 2003 Buick

I cannot speak for all models, but my 1989 Buick Century has a drainage valve located near the bottom of the radiator on the driver side of the car, and can sometimes require pliers to open. It's usually easiest to look for it from under the car....Thanks

Yes, this is very important maintenance procedures. Transmission should be serviced (filter, oil, and oil pan gasket replaced) @ 60K miles, plugs at 100K miles (I'd replace them early for better gas mileage), and radiator flushed @ 60K miles. Hopefully this helps!!

Where is 2003 buick century sensor located


Before you did any repairs to address your overheating problem, did you check to see if your fans were working at all ? One way to check if they are working is by starting your vehicle and turning the A/C on, they should automatically start running. If they do not, begin to perform diagnosis to that electric circuit.

How do i drain the old coolant from radiator. does the drain plug comes out or just turns to one direction. thanks


hi,, yeah you just turn it out, right to tighten, left to slacken, remember to remove your cap and leave a hose of running water flowing through the radiator to help wash out all the old stuff.

PS.. IF cant find the radiator drain plug, remove the button radiator hose..

I'm trying to perform a radiator drain (flush) on my 1999 Buick Century Limited. I need to know how.


drain raditor fluid then take off upper and lower hoses and put your house water hose in lower raditor hose and turn on water and let run for about 5 mins. to flush out raditor.
then run in top hose to flush back then lower hose again. that should clean it out.

1994 Century Buick Heating problem


did you make sure you got it full of coolent? i am saying this because if you don't it will create an air pocket in the system and it will not throw any heat until you get the air out. on some models there are relief valves either on the thermostate housing or buy the water pump to do this. all that needs to be done is to start car and let it run a few minutes to get warm and open the valve and let the air excape whenyou see a steady flow of coolent close valve and you should have it.
