SOURCE: Where is the radiator drain plug on 2005 Chevrolet

The textbook method is to remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.

Most drain plug is make of inexpensive nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.

The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.

Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant


I just did a FREE write up on air purge from coolant system and how to detect initial state of blown head gasket at the Fixya tip selection.

SOURCE: How do I drain the radiator of a 2005 Hemi engine

on the large hose on the bottom of the radiator, remove the clamp, take off the hose, they come off hard try it with a channel lock , or get a small screwdriver inbetween the hose and radiator, if you cant get it , cut it with a sharp knife real close to the radiator, if it is a factory clamp get a new hose clamp

There is no special tool. The easiest and fastest way to drain the radiator is to take the lower radiator hose loose from the radiator. It will drain quickly. Hope this helps :)

Need to know how to drain radiator fluid on a 05 chevy blazer?

There should be a drain plug on the passenger side of the radiator. If there is no drain plug and both hoses are at the top of the radiator you can pull the lines to the transmission. Adjust the flow coming out by taking off and putting on the radiator cap. Just make sure to reconnect the lines before you refill the radiator.

Where is the radiator drain plug on 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer

They usually put them in the most out of the way spot, where the coolant will run everywhere but in the drain pan. What I do if I can is siphon the coolant out. Take a piece of 1/4 in. steel or copper line about 3ft. long and a piece of clear plastic line, about 6ft long, that will fit snugly on the metel line. Take radiator cap off and carefully lower the metel line to the bottom of the radiator, now use a vacuum pump, or **** on the plastic line and get a siphon started. By using clear line you can see the coolant coming so you don't get a mouth full. Good luck.

Where is the drain plug for radiator on 2005 Cavalier

My guess is on that year car you have no drain plug. You need to remove the bottom hose on the unit itself.
