Radiator cap would where theradiator is! and the drain plug at the bottom. Make sure you add anti freeze if required in your area.

SOURCE: removing drain plug in radiator in 2003 sunfire

The textbook method is to remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.

Most drain plug is make of inexpensive 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

I just did a FREE write up on air purge from coolant system and how to detect initial state of blown head gasket at the Fixya tip selection.

SOURCE: How hard is it to flush and drain the radiator in

the easiest way that I've found is to just remove the upper, and lower radiator hoses from the engine. point the hoses downward, and spray thru the top hose with a garden hose, also spray down the radiator cap inlet. If the cap is crusty replace it, I also recommend removing the overflow and washing it out if needed. and yes the drain plug is hard to get to, plastic that likes to snap, and not worth messing with

How do i change the radiator fluid?


Most radiators have a drain plug on the bottom tank the engine block also has a drain plug . Remove the radiator cap ,open both drains ,let all the coolant run out, if there is no radiator plug remove the lower hose , remove the heater demister hoses, with the heater control on hot flush out all the coolant from the heater radiator. with a garden hose, till the water runs clean, tighten the radiator plug or re fit the hose,put a garden hose into the radiator and flush out till the water at the block plug runs clean ,refit the heater hoses, refit the block plug, fill the radiator from the hose leave the cap off , If it has a overflow tank clean and flush it. start and run engine for 5 minutes top up radiator if needed . stop engine and drain out all water. most important that all old coolant is drained out, only buy the best coolant you can . If you make up your own use only distilled water. keep some to top up with never mix with another brand. Fill radiator with coolant top up over flow tank, run engine top up coolant as needed, refit radiator cap run for another 10 minutes check for leaks,

Change anti freeze


Remove under engine stone plastic shield there is a drain plug at the bottom of the radiator, remove the cap off the reservoir if the drain is blocked go ahead and remove the clamp on the bottom radiator hose and let it drain from there, if you wish to flush the system, you will need to remove the thermostat and flush it then fit a new thermostat., hope this helps. ps. be sure to use jack stands and a wheel chock.

My friend went me to flush the radiator, wheres the drain plug and fill cap


there may not be a drain plug,the best way to flush the radiator is to take the bottom hose off the radiator & flush it that way, the filler cap should be on the top of the radiator......hope this helps.....cheers

Need to flush the water in radiator


Variety of chemical products available at any auto parts store you can use. Follow manufacture's directions. Basics are (with the engine cold) to te enough space in the radiator that you can add the product. Add product and close rad cap. Start engine and warm it up (again follow manufacture's directions) to that the heater core also gets flushed. Now open rad stop **** to drain radiator into disposal container. Fill with clean water. I like to run a hose into the radiator with the engine running, stop **** open and draining and flush it clean after using the chemical flush. Now fill with a 50/50 mixture of the correct antifreeze. Operate the engine until it is at operating temp and let it cool and then recehck the c oolant level. Some cooloing systems will hold a lot of air making them troublesome to cmpletely refill. It is not a big deal as long as you go back and check the coolant level. Use caution if opening an hjot radiator as the hot coolant or steam can blow back n yhou and scald you. Better to always let engine cool down before opening a radiator cap and alsys use a rag to protect your hand when opening a radiator cap. Never add coolant or water to a hot engine unless the engine is running as you can crack the block if you do. There are flush kits that involve cutting a heater hose (not to be confused with a radiator hose) and inserting a fitting that you can connect a hose to to assist in flushing and filing your radiator. .

Want to change out coolent in radiator myself is it a wise choice


Things you will need:
Radiator coolant mixture (get from garage)
Radiator flush fluid (also from garage)
Distilled water (Or if your me garden hose water ;) )

Take off the radiator cap when engine is COOL. Find the drain plug located in the bottom of the radiator (normaly hand tight) and let it drain out into a catch container. Put the drain plug back in, follow the instructions on the flush container topping the radiator back up. Let engine run as directed on bottle and then carefuly undo the radiator cap using a rag as not to burn yourself. Then remove the plug again and drain out the flush fluid. Then repeat the process with the radiator fluid as instructed on the bottle.
