SOURCE: 2002 Toyota Sienna Sunroof

There are 4 drains on the sunroof (2 in each front corner, 2 in each rear corner).
If you want to check to see if they are clear, you can do this.

Get a squeeze bulb (about the size of a turkey baster) and squirt water down each drain, look for water draining out at the bottom of the car. For the rear drains, park the car on a slight uphill, and gently squeeze water down the drain trough on each side, here again, look for water draining out of the car.
If those ar clear, next step is to check the seal of the glass. The drains are only designed to take in a small amount of water, if there is too big of a gap between the panel and the body, it will over run the drain troughs (kind of like when the gutters on a house get stuff in them).

Finding water leaks is kind of a pain, but not if you take it a step at a time.
One thing to remember, water does not run uphill.

So to further water test it. Find a place where you can park it uphill or downhill, grab a flashlight, a friend and a hose.
Start at a low spot, and work your way around the sunroof (one person inside with the light, one outside with the hose). Just let the water run slowly, you don't want to use a nozzle or a spray.
Once you can see when the water starts leaking on the inside, you can narrow down the cause.

You need to open the sunroof fully and locate the small drain holes at each corner. They will be blocked with debris. Get a piece of welding wire or the likes and carefully unblock the hose by prodding and pouring water down it. When cleared the water shout run away freely.

SOURCE: how to remove radiator drain plug

Radiator caps and drain plugs; these seem to be disappearing from our vehicles since they cost a buck or two.
If your Olds still has one, you should be able to find it easily by checking the lower tank of the radiator.
If you are flushing or changing the fluid, please do not let the old fluid simply run onto the ground since the sweetness of the stuff attracts critters and domestic pets can be poisoned by it.

Can't figure how to remove wireing cover over Thermsta housing on a 2006 4 cyl. Elantre


  • 1

    Begin by sliding under the front of the car and locating the radiator drain plug on the bottom of the passenger's side of the radiator. Slide the catch container under the drain plug. Use the socket set to loosen and remove the plug. Allow all the coolant to drain out of the system.

  • 2

    Follow the coolant line that comes out of the bottom of the radiator and enters the engine block. Where the line enters the block, there is a small oval cover. Use the socket set to remove the two screws holding this oval cover on. Below the cover, you will find the thermostat.

  • 3

    Pull the thermostat out and then slide in the new thermostat. Replace the cover and tighten down the mounting screws. Unscrew the radiator cap and fill the system with a 50/50 mix of water and radiator fluid. Start the car and see if it cools down like it should.

    How do i drain the radiator on a 2002 jaguar x-type


    below the radiator you will see a hose on the passenger side. Yes, you will have to remove the lower tray to access this. The lower hose attached to the radiator has a plastic drain plug attached to the bottom of the hose. Unscrew with a slotted scewdriver counterclock wise to drain the radiator. It will drain faster if you remove the cap from the expansion tank on the drivers side.

    Where is the drain plug for the radiator


    Should be a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator that unscrews out. It looks like a wing nut has been welded to a bolt on the end of it. Another way to do this is just pull off the bottom hose.

    Where is drain plug for 1998 dakota 4x4 i need to drain radiator &what is the turning thing on the lower drivers side of radiator 4


    1998 dakota 4x4
    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.
