Plastic tanks have a screw in drain in the bottom of the radiator tank
it is up in a housing and has a cross in the end for a large philips screw driver
you may have to remove splash panels to get to it.

SOURCE: 2005 kia spectra over heating

Did you install a new thermostat and make sure to bleed all the air out of the system when you replaced the radiator? If you didn't, or installed a Stant thermostat, replace it with a FACTORY OEM thermostat. Make sure the cooling system is bled by opening your radiator cap (WHILE THE CAR IS OFF AND COLD), starting the car and running the heater. Add coolant to the radiator as the engine heats up, until is at normal operating temperature AND starts spitting coolant back out.

Hope this helps,
matt

Where is the radiator drain


on the bottom of the radiator. either on the side pointed toward the engine or the very botttom pointed at the ground. be careful with the fluid, cats and dogs are attracted to the stuff and if they drink it they will die. get a large container there will be alot of it, any spills should be washed away immediatly to avoid dead pets, use lots of water

I have 2002 Kia Spectra after engine shut down the fan motor is running so long that it draining the battery. It does not shut off before the temp gage is all most complety cooled down. Do you have any...


The fan should shut down after the radiator temperature is between 180-195 degrees. If yours is staying on way below this I would think you temp. sensor is stuck and keeping your fan on.
