Some of the drain plugs that GM used from 1999-2002 are just a 1/4-1/2 turn counterclockwise and pull out or pull towards engine it will pull out only so far and stop and the coolant should start coming out , the other style was turn counterclockwise to unscrew it about 3-4 turns and pull towards engine.

Thank you mic0707. My 1998 has a light blue wing nut style valve at the bottom of the radiator on the passenger side. One-quarter (1/4) turn and draining commenced.

A diagram of the flushing of a radiator and block of a chevrolet blazer LS 2000


Theres no such thing as a diagram, here are the draining instructions, hope this helps...
  • 1-Place a large drain pan beneath the radiator drain plug. The drain plug is located on the passenger side at the very bottom of the radiator on the engine side.

  • 2-Make sure the engine is cool. Open the hood of the truck and remove the radiator cap.
  • 3-Loosen the drain plug. On the 2000 Blazer, the drain plug is a wing-nut type of plug. Twist it with your fingers until the coolant begins to drain.

  • *To flush the block, once you have drained the radiator, run the engine for a bit untill the temp gauge goes up to normal, then the coolant will have been evacuated from the block. DO NOT leave the engine on, once it reaches normal temp, (this will happen quick) turn off right away, otherwise you'll be forking out a few hundred $$$ to fix the worped heads.
    4-Tighten the drain plug with your fingers once the coolant has drained fully from the radiator. Remove the drain pan and dispose of the used coolant properly.
    Some service stations will take and recycle your used coolant.
    Hope this helps...

    Where is the drain plug on a 2003 chevy blazer


    The oil drain plug is located on the bottom of the oil pan.
    The radiator drain is on the bottom passangers side of the radiator.
    The transmission drain plug is in the trans oil pan , or you may have to drain by releasing the tension on the pan bolts... in which case you will likely need to replace the transmission pan gasket to reseal it.

    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.

    How do I drain and replace the engine coolant for a chevy Blazer?


    You'll want to remove the radiator cap. On that tank, on the bottom toward the engine is a drain to unscrew. You might want to spray some WD-40 on the drain plug, to help get it unscrewed.

    How do i drain the radiator and flush out on a 1999 chevy blazer?


    open the drain valve on the bottom inside of the radiator, run the engine with the garden hose in the radiator cap, have the heater switched on high temp.  After the water comes out clean, turn off engine and let all water drain out.  Replace with 50/50 mix if distilled water and antifreeze.  Collect old antifreeze as it is very toxic and poisonous.
