Question about 1996 Chrysler Cirrus
Where is coolant drain plug on 1996 Chrysler Cirrus?
The coolant drain plug is located on the bottom left side of the radiator when looking from front of car. To access it you must remove the passenger side fog light and push the rubber cover out of the way.

After opening the passenger-side fog light, the specified 19mm socket did NOT fit. After engineering a custom 19mm WITH rubber glove piece inserted to turn it, the petcock fought like a Spartan to stay in place. After loosening it, only a pinhole-sized stream came out, and eventually clogged. To add insult to injury, it ALMOST BROKE TRYING TO TIGHTEN IT BACK INTO PLACE. DO NOT LOOSEN the petcock, people! Instead, go over to the driver's side fog light, remove it, then get a 1 1/2" C-clamp and remove the factory hose clamp. Dispose! Spray with silicon to lubricate, pry off the hose and drain the system several times. Don't forget to use a small siphon hose to drain the overflow reservoir, which probably has a mud-like substance caked to the bottom. Use a garden hose to loosen the dirt and siphon several times. DON'T add the coolant in the reservoir, use the central cap to fill. 1990's petcocks are engineered to be unserviceable, to keep us from saving money. Don't touch them! DANGER!
