SOURCE: 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.

Wheres the location of the radiator drain plug on 2003 kia optima?


Bottom of radiator tank at the rear of the tank, it is most often on the driver's side, you need to go under the car to see the drain valve. I don't do it that way, I just remove the lower radiator hose from the lower radiator hose nipple to drain the coolant.

Adjust radiator cooling fan 2003 kia optima


There is no adjustment on the cooling fan. If the car overheats, there are only a few things it could be. First, with the engine off and cool, check if the radiator is full of coolant and it looks clean.

The most likely cause of overheating is a stuck thermostat. You will need to drain the coolant and replace the thermostat. You can locate it easily by following the top radiator hose to the housing on the engine. The thermostat is under this housing.

You could also have some kind of blockage on your radiator. If there is a lot of dirt in the fins, air cannot circulate and remove the heat. Use some compressed air to blow the fins clean.

I want to flush the coolant on a 2003 Kia Optima 2.4 liter Auto with A/C. How much antifreeze should I buy to mix with water? What is the total coolant capacity?


Coolant capacity is 7.7 qts./7.3 liters, for a 2.4 liter 2003 Kia Optima.
You will not be able to get all the coolant out of the engine, unless you do a thorough engine drain and flush. If you only plan on draining the radiator, you will need less than 2 gallons mixed total to refill it, since some coolant will remain in the engine block and heater core.

How do i install the plastic radiator plug in the bottom of the radiator? on a 2003 kia spectra?


Should just thread in. Unless it is now stripped. Which is why I don't touch them. Pulling the lower radiator hose to drain the radiator is an easier and safer method IMHO.
