The drain plug is on the drivers side of the radiator at the bottom. It's a plastic drain plug with an O ring, so make sure you lube the O rings before you re-install it so it will not break. I find it easier to just remove the bottom radiator hose on the passenger side the drain the radiator, and with the car being almost 10 years old, you may just want to replace the radiator hoses just to be safe. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.

While Facing it It Should Be Opposite the Lower Radiator Hose, Although the Way Mose Vehicles are Built, They are Hadr,Sometimes even Impossible to Get to to DRAIN Radiator. I Normaly Use A LARGE Drain Pan and Slowly Remove the Lower Hose to Drain Them. Hope this Helps!

SOURCE: 2000 Olds intrigue overheating

i have a 2000 olds intrigue thats been overheating alot lately the other day my drain plug for my radiator came on the way to work so i lost all my antifreeze on the way, i got to work and wound getting another plug to replace...the one that came out...topped off antifreeze...anyhow i go home and car overheats on the way home...i took it to a radiator shop today and they checked for, leaks, checked the water pump, pressure tested it...and they told me that the only thing they found was a airlock, but however the guy did recommend taking it to a mech and having it checked for a blown headgasket, so i go home today and i noticed my temp gauge going up and down on the way home it would get hot then cool down then get hot again...the car did eventually start to overheated so i pulled over and let the car cool down...i know this is getting frustrating, so do you have any recommendations or solutions as to whats cause the car to overheat.

Where is the drain plug for the radiator on a 2000 olds bravada


It will be on the bottom of the radiator if it has one. If you do not find one simply remove the lower radiator hose to drain the antifreeze out.

I want to drain or flush coolant from 2000 intrique but I can not locate the screw. how should I do it?


Some models do NOT have a drain petcock like the old cars did. If that is the case, the easiest way to drain the radiator is to loosen and remove the lower radiator hose from the radiator. Once it is drained, put it back in place, tighten the hose clamp and refill...
Good Luck

You fill at the coolant or surge tank,and the drain plug should be on the side with the lower radiator hose or the passenger side,it will look like a thumb screw or wing design urn counterclockwise and pull out at the same time.

Need to drain coolant from 1998 Olds Intrigue. What is best way? (3800 Engine)


COOLANT CHANGEON THE RADIATOR (LOWER DRIVERS SIDE FACING THE MOTOR) THERE IS A PLASTIC LIKE PLUG THAT YOU TURN COUNTER CLOCKWISE ABOUT 3/4 OF A TURN, THEN YOU CAN PULL IT OUT ABOUT 1/2 AN INCH THIS WILL DRAIN THE RADIATOR, THEN YOU CAN PUSH THE PLUG BACK IN AND TURN IT UNTIL YOU FEEL IT LOCK BACK IN PLACE. REFILL RADIATOR WITH 3 PARTS COOLANT TO 1 PART WATER.
1998-'99 Intrigues equipped with the 3800 engine have a specific process for replacing antifreeze. It is somewhat of a lengthy process and you should refer to your owners manual for doing this. After you empty and flush your system with water (garden hose), only fill the system with green 50/50 antifreeze, NOT Dex-Cool. Avoid Dex-Cool. If you bring your Intrigue to a shop to get serviced, make sure and inform whoever doing repairs and/or leave a note (clearly visible) to NOT use Dex-Cool if they're doing any work pertaining to cooling system.

3.5 olds intrigue overheating. Why?


Replace the radiator, and flush the system out. Don't use Dexcool in the system as this is the source of many cooling problems on GM's.
