1997 Chrysler Concorde radiator drain valve - not draining

On my 97 Concorde, I located the radiator drain valve, a stop-**** type plastic valve.

I can turn it 90 degrees, and have the radiator cap off, as well as the bleed vent open - but no flow !

Does this type valve pull out to flow ? It really seems like 90 degrees is all it's meant to turn. I tugged on it to no avail but didn't want to break it, so I didn't push my luck.

I prefer not to just pull the lower radiator hose, although if no better answer, that's what I'll do !

Thanks -

Radiator drain plug how do i open it to drain the radiator

You don't. You never open the petcock on radiators with plastic tanks because the petcock always breaks. If it doesn't break, it'll leak when you close it. No pro ever uses the petcock. You loosen the lower radiator hose clamp and yank the lower radiator hose. You'll take a bath, but it'll all be drained in about 1.5 mins. Then reconnect. You'll actually drain far more coolant that way too.

The oil drain plug is located on the side of the oil pan, passenger side. It does not look like a typical drain plug, as it's one of those quick drain type. It is meant to be hand loosened and tightened. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN or you are in for a world of hurt. Just firmly finger tight

Do i need to remove anything to get to the radiator drain plug on 2002 chrysler concorde lxi?

the drain "bung" or "spikot" will be located on either the drive or passenger side bottom corner of the radiator. in some cases you need to remove a splash guard or skid plate in order to access it. once you find it you should be able to slip a 3/8th or 1/2 inch hose over the end in order to run it neatly into a container

Where is the radiator drain plug located on a 97 chevy 1500 Z71? I'm trying to flush the radiator,but cannot find it.

It's located on the drivers side of the radiator opposite of the lower radiator hose. Note: you may be better off disconnecting the lower radiator hose, it's common for the drain plug to break or the O-rings to split causing more work to drain the radiator. That's why most tech's will drain the radiator from the lower radiator hose, less chance of breaking the radiator drain plug and most new cars now don't come with a drain plug to the radiator.

Raise the vehicle. Locate the drain valve on the engine side of the radiator on the bottom tank on the driverside. The valve will look kinda like a butterfly wings together. Turn it counter clock wise and it will start to drain.

Should be a drain valve located on the bottom of the radiator, if not, you may have to just remove the lower radiator hose. Most radiators have drain valves, but there are a few that don't. Hope this helps
