How to drain radiator


On some radiators there is a drain petcock. It will be located at a bottom corner of the radiator. Some drain out the back, others the bottom. If you don't see one, don't worry. Many vehicles do not have a drain valve anymore. You will need to remove the lower radiator hose on these to drain to radiator. Be ready for a mess.

I need to bleed the radiator system. Where is the bleed valve?


Uncap the radiator, and unscrew the radiator drain plug. Normally, this drain plug is located on the inside bottom of the radiator, but models will vary. Once the drain plug is unscrewed, coolant will rush out into the drain pan. If there is not a drain plug, then disconnecting the lower radiator hose will be adequate.

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.

I need to drain the antifreeze where is the plug from the engine block


The textbook method is to remove the drain plug. Most drain plug is make of nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.

The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.

Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant

Draining cooling system 2001 olds bravada


There is a drain plug on the radiator on the divers side, inside at the bottom. Note: most of the time when the plug is removed the O-ring get's damaged and needs to be replaced since it sticks to the radiator. Most of the time it's quicker and easier to disconnect the lower radiator hose on the passenger side and let it drain there. Most of the newer radiator don't even have a drain plug and if you want a drain plug,you'll have to drill a hole where the drain plug should be and place one there. The drain plug is around $4.99 at most Auto Parts store. Good luck and hope this helps.

Cannot drain radiator in my 2003 dodge durango to flush system


I'm guessing that you do not have a radiator drain plug. It would be located on the bottom of the radiator. If not the next best solution is to disconnect the lower radiator hose. You will only need to loosen the clamp, and slide the hose off the radiator. Don't forget to have something to use to collect the fluid. Keep it off until you are ready to refill. Hope this helps

You can remove the lower radiator hose. Since the vehicle is 10 years old you may want to inspect the hoses for replacement anyway.

) 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.

96 Grand Am radiator


if you don't have a draining nozzle at the bottom of your radiator than you'll have to disconnect your bottom radiator hose to drain the radiator fluid.Easy to do,but just make sure you have a drain bucket handy when you take the radiator hose off.Radiator hose is just ckamped on and most likely the only tool you need is a flat head screwdriver to loosen up the clamp and pull the radiator hose off.
