Facing the front of the car, the drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator, right hand side, between the support rail and the radiator. There is a hole in the support rail to access this drain plug ( + ) style plug - unscrew counter-clockwise.

I need to bleed the radiator system. Where is the bleed valve?


Uncap the radiator, and unscrew the radiator drain plug. Normally, this drain plug is located on the inside bottom of the radiator, but models will vary. Once the drain plug is unscrewed, coolant will rush out into the drain pan. If there is not a drain plug, then disconnecting the lower radiator hose will be adequate.

Where is plug to drain the radiator?


Some models do not have a drain plug because they have a plastic radiator shell. If there is one, is should be by the lower raidator hose on the bottom of the shell. I usually just disconnect the lower radiator hose and let it drain from there.

    How do you drain the radiator on a 2001 blazer


    There is drain plug on the drivers side of the radiator at the bottom, but the safest way is to just remove the lower radiator hose on the passenger side to drain the radiator. The drain plug is plastic and it may crack due to time and heat and you'll have to buy a replacement radiator drain plug, for this reason most newer radiator don't come with a drain plug and if you want one you'll have to install the drain plug kit. If your radiator doesn't have a drain plug then you have the newer radiators install already as the older radiators we still being installed until they were all gone and the new ones were installed.
    Thank you for using Fixya.

    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.

    Draining cooling system 2001 olds bravada


    There is a drain plug on the radiator on the divers side, inside at the bottom. Note: most of the time when the plug is removed the O-ring get's damaged and needs to be replaced since it sticks to the radiator. Most of the time it's quicker and easier to disconnect the lower radiator hose on the passenger side and let it drain there. Most of the newer radiator don't even have a drain plug and if you want a drain plug,you'll have to drill a hole where the drain plug should be and place one there. The drain plug is around $4.99 at most Auto Parts store. Good luck and hope this helps.

    How do I get to the radiator drain plug? 2003 Astro Van


    Great news for you, the best way to drain the radiator is to remove the lower radiator hose. The bad news is that OEM radiator came with no drain plug and you can have one put in after you remove the radiator to drill a hole and tap in a $6.00 radiator drain plug for NAPA auto parts. Good luck and hope this helps. this was a way for GM to save money by one less parts to have make, since most auto mechanic just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the radiator. Good luck and hope this helps. If your luck and your Astor does have one, you can find the drain plug on the lower drivers side of the radiator, engine side.

    You can remove the drain plug in the bottom on the radiator.
    You can remove the lower radiator hose. Since the vehicle is 10 years old you may want to inspect the hoses for replacement anyway.

    ) Make sure the vehicle is cool.
    ) Slightly loosen the radiator cap to release any pressure.
    ) Re-tighten the radiator cap.
    ) Place a suitable container under the drain point.
    ) open the drain.
    ) Re-loosen the radiator cap again.
    ) Allow to drain.
    ) REPLACE THE DRAIN PLUG.
    * At this point the radiator can be fill with water and a radiator cleaning agent- run the engine - allow to warm up.
    * Re-drain the radiator - .
    ) REPLACE THE DRAIN PLUG.
    ) Refill the radiator with water/anti-freeze.
    ) Dispose of waste fluid according to the local regulations. Some city dumps will accept it. Some parts stores may accept it. Do not pour down the drain or dump on the ground.
