98 tacoma radiator replacement


Not a difficult process. start by draining your radiator from the drain plug on the bottom, passenger side of the radiator. Disconnect upper and lower hoses and drain as well.

You will need to remove the fan shroud. The trick is to remove the 4 bolts holding the clutched fan and remove the shrowed WITH the fan at the same time. This will save you from playing with the belts. From there, there is only a handfull of bolts and they are all easily accessible.

Where is the radiator drain plug on a 1993 Toyota Corolla?


Hi there,

For most Toyota radiators I know, the plug is in the center at the bottom of the radiator housing. If you cannot locate it, then simply remove the bottom radiator hose to drain the radiator. Keep in mind that you may need to replace the hose clamp if it has the one-use factory style clamp.

The drain plug is directly below your upper radiator hose at the bottom of the radiator. You can start by disconnecting the battery ground cable.

Hope this helps...

2001 Oldsmobile Alero 2.4l engine, 244400 miles - radiator is leaking at drain plug. This happened after I drained the rad. for replacement. of hoses. Can the plug be replaced without putting in a new...


you can try removing the plug and seeing if it is a gasket or an o-ring that seals it to the radiator. You should be able to find an o-ring or a gasket that will work at your local parts store. If replacing the o-ring or gasket does not work than the radiator will need to be replaced. We no longer drain radiators with the petcock for this reason.

The drain plug should be on the bottom left side and its a white wingnut you undo and when you do it back up to fill it make sure you dont do it too tight or too loose as its only plastic and can strip if youre too rough with it

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.

) REPLACE THE DRAIN PLUG.
) Refill the radiator with water/anti-freeze.
