Trying to drain the radiator

I am working on a 1995 cadillac eldorado and i am trying to use an oil to repair the headgasket which requires you to completely drain out the radiator but i cannot find the radiator drain plug. the entire bottom side of the radiator is enclosed in a piece of steel that is welded in on both sides of the car, it is not an aftermarket job, any ideas?

I need to drain the radiator on the Eldorado and refill it.


The radiator drain is on the back of the radiator plastic side tank in the back it faces the engine, the drain looks like an old fashioned clock winding key head, turn it counter clockwise to loosen while gently pull out to released from O ring seal. You must do this from under the car, it should be on the drivers side. If you have trouble turning it they make a special tool for about $4 that you can buy at any parts store like NAPA or Carquest..

Check oil level Light on 95 Cadillac eldorado


Did you check your oil level? If the oil level is OK and the light will not shut off, check the connector at the oil level sensor. It is located in the side of the engine oil pan. If the connector and wires are OK, then you may need to replace the sensor. It simply screws out of the oil pan, but you will most likely lose a little oil in the process, so be sure to use a drain pan.

Blown head gasket


Yes, driving around with a blown headgasket is BADDDD....

If you've never replaced a headgasket before then I would suggest that you not try it without proper supervision and help.
On a v8 when you replace one headgasket you replace the other as well. The gasket kit comes as a set of 2 headgaskets and all other gaskets and o-rings that will need to be replaced. You will need an array of tools to accomplish the mission - some hand tools and some specialty tools for dismantling the cylinder head.
I'm really not trying to scare you off but this is NO SMALL JOB. It will require patience and it will require tools and prior knowledge - so get the HAYNES RePAIR manual for the car and read up if you decide to go for it. I did the headgastets on my Acura Legend v6 - and what should have taken 30 hours start to finish took about 55.
Good Luck and Happy Motoring!!!!!!!
