Go take it to the dealer you should still have a full warranty. If you want to try and do it your self you could void that warranty.

SOURCE: cannot drain radiator in my 2003 dodge durango to

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

Can't close plastic drain plug on dodge caliber radiator


There may be dirt blocking it. Let it rinse out for a while, check the looks of the fluid. Wiggle the plug while it drains. You may not have to remove it completely to drain.

I want to flush the radiator on my 2001 gmc jimmy. Is the radiator draincock covered by a plastic shielding? Also does the draincock have an O-ring that would need to be replaced? Thanks. Ian v.


there should be a drain **** on either side of the lower radiator. you might have to remove the splash guard to get to it easier, If it is not leaking then the o ring does not need replaced when you drain, the drain plug does not have to be removed all the way, it has a drain hole on it when the plug is loosened to a certain point it will allow to drain. If you remove all the way then go ahead and inspect o ring and replace before installing again. but always lube an old or new rubber o ring with (oil) before installing. Installing a dry rubber o ring will result in possible failure.

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 to replace a radiator drain plug on 2001 dodge dakota


with the use of a special socket that fits over the drain plug You can remove it from the bottom of the vehicle... obviously you will need to drain the radiator fluid first with the use of a drain pan to catch the fluid. Install is the reverse procedure

How to change radiator 1998 oldmobile intrigue


Hope this helps you. Here are the basics. There are many problems you may run up against (frozen bolts, stubborn or cracked hoses, rusted clamps, etc)that may need to be fixed or replaced before proceeding: SHut off engine, allow to cool completely. Disconnect the cooling fan, remove negative battery terminal connection. Drain radiator by opening draincock and/or removing lower radiator hose, collecting coolant in a drain pan. Do not let it go onto the ground - bad for environment! Open top radiator hose to allow remainder of coolant to flow out. A few quarts of coolant will remain in the engine block. You will want to totally flush and refill AFTER replacing the radiator to get all the crud out of the system. Unbolt radiator and disconnect any other items still attached (transmission cooler, temp sensor wires, etc.). Remove radiator and replace with new, reattaching all items removed from old radiator. Inspect other items and possibly replace suspects. Reattach hoses and make sure the clamps are tightened without pinching hoses excessively. Do a flush job with water/radiator flush, making sure the water runs clear out the draincock. Instructions for flushing the cooling system are usually printed on the radiator flush bottle. Be sure the heater is on and the engine warms up completely to open the thermostat. SHut off engine and drain as much water as will leave. Fill with 50% coolant mix (Dexcool or equivalent). Estimate water remaining in the engine and add 100% coolant to balance. COmplete fill with 50% mix. Remove air by running engine until warmed with the radiator cap off, adding coolant mix along the way.

Need help with flushing radiator


Are you sure you are turning the drain in the correct direction? If you are then if the lower radiator
hose clamp is fairly accessible you might try taking that off but be ready for a flood of coolant. Good luck. Neil W.

Im trying to flush my radiator and the draincock is only turning quarter turned and nothing comes out and i am worried about breaking draincock any advice


The only way I've ever flushed a radiator is by removing bottom hose and letting fluid drain from there. With a truck, this should be a piece of cake, due to the bottom clearance. I wouldn't mess with the deaincock as you may break something, and get to spend money fixing that too. Just my 2 cents..Good luck
