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...

    Were is the thermostat located in a Pontiac Sunfire 2000?


    Hi:
    Your thermostat is located under the thermostat housing, which is what the upper radiator hose clamps to on the top of your engine. Basically, you need to start with a cold engine, drain your radiator, then unclamp the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently tap on it to remove it. clean up the mounting surfaces on both the engine and the housing, and install a new thermostat, and new gasket. tighten to proper torque, reconnect the radiator hose, then refill up the radiator and cooling system.

    Removing drain plug in radiator in 2003 sunfire


    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
