If i forgot to put wire on thermosthat will that cause radiator to blow

NO The wire was probably for the temperature sender unit and the gauge would read nothing if it was lose of overheat if it was touching metal. radiators blow from excessive pressures generated from over heat or faulty head gaskets. have a compression test done to check for blown head gaskets or cracked head/s. The radiator will crack if there is excessively low ambient temperature ( freezing) and the antifreeze is below the correct concentration

My lower radiator hose swells and engine overheats. 1998 Eldorado..with radiator cap off coolant shoots out like a gyser. Is this a clogged radiator

Sounds very much like head gasket or cracked head. You need to have a cylinder leakage test done by a mechanic. To hard for me to teach in writing.

Trying to find were my radiator drain plug is located

It will be located on the bottom of the radiator facing the engine. If there is none, simply remove the lower hose to drain the system.

Where is the drain plug on the radiator buick regal 2000

Many newer automobile no longer have a Radiator Drain ****. If you do have one it will be located near the bottom of one of the Radiator Tanks in the "Most Inaccessible place imaginable". All you need to do is loosen the Hose Clamp on the Lower Radiator Hose and work the Hose free to drain the system. Be careful not to damage the Plastic Radiator Tank in the process of loosening the Hose.

I cant find the thermostat on my 1994 buick skylark

It is definately there. It is in a housing right where the hose runs into the engine on the TOP radiator hose. Should be in a rounded top shape with 2 bolts to remove.
