Not a huge problem as long as you DO NOT run the car. You will find a valve or petcock at the bottom of radiator open it and drain all fluid from radiator - then using a flush kit from Walmart follow package directions and do a full flush of cooling system. I would do it twice, then refill with appropriate fluids should be good to go for under 30 bucks and an hour or so of your time
no there is a drain , its just towards the center from the bottom outlet hose , it doesn't look too much llike a drain , as its black and is down inside a well (this guides the coolant out) the well is about 3/4 inch deep and the drain plug turns via a tiny wing nut
didnt specify type of vehicle ---look across the bottom of radiator for a "T" looking valve thats a petcock and opening it will drain radiator---no petcock look for a stubby about a 1 inch extension with a plug or a screw head that s a drain plug -----if their is nothing just lower hose line than to drain ur vehicle u remove the lower hose
I didn't get much out of the video. If the radiator has a drain valve it will be on the bottom of one of the tanks. Not all radiators have a valve. You have to remove the lower radiator hose if no valve exists.
Should be a drain plug or petcock at the bottom or rear of the radiator or remove the lower radiator hose. If there is a petcock just/drain plug. Generally on this year you would rotate it 1/4 turn and it will start draining. If it doesnt drain there is something inside the radiator. Then you will have to resort to removing the lower radiator hose. If you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, Midwest-tek
There common to break off, you can pick up the replacement drain plug at NAPA and buy a stud retracter to remove the drain plug. if the plug is not leaking, Leave it alone and to drain the radiator, just disconnect the lower radiator hose on the opposite side of the radiator.
Good luck and hope this helps you on your project.
If you can remove it, you can replace it either with the correct size NPT pipe plug or another petcock. I generally use a plug with teflon tape on the threads and drain by removing the lower hose...It's faster and easier than using the drain!
on one side of the radiator near the bottom is a petcock. open the petcock to drain. Take the radiator cap off to do this to allow it to vent so it will drain out.
If you cant find it, remove the bottom hose off the radiator. This is messy but effective.
