Hello! The drain plug is located on the bottom right hand side of the radiator. I've attached a picture below to indicate what it looks like. To open the drain, you will only need to turn the plug 1/4 turn and pull it outwards, and then coolant will begin to drain. For faster flow, you should remove your radiator cap as well.

Where is the radiator drain plug for a Pontiac Grand AM SE, 2.4L 4cylnder?


Typically they are on the drivers side. It will be a white plug with a 1/4 inch square notch in the middle.

I would not drain the radiator with the drain. They are known to break the o-ring and leak after wards. It is usually much easier to pull the lower hose and let the radiator drain that way.

Is there a radiator drain plug on a 2002Pontiac Grand Prix 3.1 L


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

Most drain plug ismake 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
