If you can't find one, it may not be there. (rarely used item) If you need to drain block find an easily accessible Welsh (freeze out)plug and remove it. Usually just flushing through the normal inlet/outlets for the radiator is sufficient for most purposes.

linkage to the rear of the master cylinder, with no free play.

this folly collapses the MC piston ,blocking the drain back ports
and the brakes lock. A travesty waiting to happen

Prizm low beam problem

Possible problem is at bulb plug in. Take & disconnect the light from wiring connector, put DIELECTRIC grease in wiring plug after you check for corrosion. Sometimes it gets a film on connections & just need some TLC... GOD BLESS.....

A diagram of the flushing of a radiator and block of a chevrolet blazer LS 2000

Theres no such thing as a diagram, here are the draining instructions, hope this helps...
  • 1-Place a large drain pan beneath the radiator drain plug. The drain plug is located on the passenger side at the very bottom of the radiator on the engine side.

  • 2-Make sure the engine is cool. Open the hood of the truck and remove the radiator cap.
  • 3-Loosen the drain plug. On the 2000 Blazer, the drain plug is a wing-nut type of plug. Twist it with your fingers until the coolant begins to drain.

  • *To flush the block, once you have drained the radiator, run the engine for a bit untill the temp gauge goes up to normal, then the coolant will have been evacuated from the block. DO NOT leave the engine on, once it reaches normal temp, (this will happen quick) turn off right away, otherwise you'll be forking out a few hundred $$$ to fix the worped heads.
    4-Tighten the drain plug with your fingers once the coolant has drained fully from the radiator. Remove the drain pan and dispose of the used coolant properly.
    Some service stations will take and recycle your used coolant.
    Hope this helps...

    Spark plugs

    Good. The spark plugs, Are located on top of the engine. On each cylinder.
    Some cars come with a plastic cover on top of the Engine and you will need to remove to see the Ignition wires. Remove the ignition wires and with a 5/8 socket you will remove the spark plugs.

    Be careful Don't drop, because the gap can be out of calibration.
    Replace the Ignition wires if need.

    Ok. if you have more questions let me know.

    2000 Prizm

    Is there a few possibilities for a Low mileage per gallon on any car.
    But I will mention the more Importants.

    The Spark plugs.
    Depend on the Mileage on your car, Normally For a Prizm.
    The spark plug should be changed every 30,000 Miles.
    With Factory Dippon Denso ( ND) or NGK. Both are factory replacement.

    Check for any Vaccum leak on the Intake Manifold and The Big Rubber hose from the Throttle Body
    To the Air filter.. Or any restriction on the Big rubber hose.

    Is very Important to Have changed the Oil every 3,000 miles.
    Incredible But Old oil made any car to have low mileage per gallon.

    Check the condition of the Transmission Fluid .
    Is nessesary to change the first time at 60,000, and after Every 20,000 or 30,000 miles.
    To old or burn Transmission fluid made the car run on more RPM to get power.
    Compare with new oil ,

    Ok. is there a few more things but check this first and let me know.

    I hope this help on your question.
    Thank you for use fixya.
