Its not a typical petcock, it should look like a phillips head screw on the underside tank of the radiator

Hi,
There are no petcock valve on toyota camry.
What its a plain radiator cap that has a valve in it, pressure can be activated at certain point and the coolant goes through the coolant reservoir.
You mean the radiator drain plug? you would see that plug underneathe that radiator assembly, wing nut type plastic made, can be loosen by hand or a pair of pliers!
Hope that was your looking for!
Thanks for using Fixya!

43@2003 Chevy Malibu V6 How to drain coolant from radiater. I don't know what procedure to use to open the plastic drain thing at the bottom of the radiater to get the coolant to drain and then close it...


Place a drain pan under the petcock.
Slowly turn the petcock CCW
Be careful to avoid contact with the flow if the car is hot
Open the petcock several turns until the flow is constant.
Remove the radiator cap to allow air into the radiator
once flow has stopped, close the petcock.

Is there anything more we can help you with?

How do you drain the coolant out of a 2002 yukon


Usually there is a petcock on the lower edge of the radiator either on the right or left side. If you can not find it at all then disconnect lower radiator hose from either radiator or water pump. This will make a small mess but will drain the coolant.

How do I change the lower radiator hose


Cooling System
Ensure that the engine is completely cool prior to starting this service.
1. Remove the recovery tank or radiator cap.
2. Raise and support the vehicle.
3. Place a drain pan of sufficient capacity under the radiator and open the petcock (drain) on the radiator.
è Plastic petcocks easily bind. Before opening a plastic radiator petcock, spray it with some penetrating lubricant.
4. Drain the cooling system completely.
5. Close the petcock.
6. Remove the drain pan.
7. Lower the vehicle.
8. Determine the capacity of the cooling system, then property refill the system with a 50/50 mixture of fresh coolant and distilled water.
9. Leave the recovery tank or radiator cap off to aid in bleeding the system.
10. Start the engine and allow it to idle until the thermostat opens (the upper radiator hose will become hot). The coolant level should go down, this is normal as the system bleeds the air pockets out of the system.
11. Refill the system with coolant to the proper level.
12. Turn the engine OFF and check for leaks.

Chaning coolant


Sorry but most newer radiators don't have a petcock. I just changed mine by removing the lower radiator hose.Most newer cars only hold a gallon or so of antifreeze anyway. If you have five year coolant (dexcool) DO NOT MIX WITH ANY OTHER BRAND regardless of what the bottles tell you. If you mix red coolant with green it will turn into a radiator and heater core clogging glop.
