Most radiators don't have drain plugs anymore. You just remove the lower hose. Loosen the clamp and twist back and forth until it breaks free.

How do I drain the radiator on my 1999 3.3 liter Plymouth Voyager Minivan?

I looked at a couple of dozen radiators for sale and could find no drain plug on any of them.
Be advised, some radiators have none.
In that case, you have two choices,
1) look elsewhere for a drain with a really good light. or
2) remove the bottom radiator hose and drain it that way.
Know that removing the hose will splash coolant "everywhere", you will need a very big collection pan.
God bless your efforts.

Do i need to remove anything to get to the radiator drain plug on 2002 chrysler concorde lxi?

the drain "bung" or "spikot" will be located on either the drive or passenger side bottom corner of the radiator. in some cases you need to remove a splash guard or skid plate in order to access it. once you find it you should be able to slip a 3/8th or 1/2 inch hose over the end in order to run it neatly into a container

Where is the radiator cap on a 2000 taurus

Well, if your vehicle was equipped with a radiator cap, it would be located on the radiator. However your vehicle does not have one. There is, however a pressure cap located on the coolant reservoir. This information is covered on page #150 in the Owner's Manual. (complete with pictures to show you where it is.)

I'm trying to find the location of the radiator drain plug on a 1996 chrysler sebring

I think you will have to lower the splash shield under the front bumper and it should be on the very bottom of the radiator.

If not, you can loosen the lower hose at the radiator and drain it that way.

Were is the drain plug for the radiator located? Do you have to take the splash shield off to get to it?

Anything on the radiator is difficult to get to. I usually remove the small hose that goes from the overflow bottle into the lower radiator hose to drain the cooling system. If you look at the passanger side of the car in front of the wheel down at the bottom you will see where the lower rad hose goes into the radiator there is a tee where the small hose from the overflow tank comes in, remove the pinch clamp and pull the hose off, have a big pan ready because it will come out fast! Good luck. P.S. Please dont do this with the engine hot!

Radiator drain plug

It's probably located under the splash guard and should have either an internal hex head, an external hex (like a bolt head), or both. You can also drain the radiator by pulling the lower radiator hose.

I need to drain the radiator? Where is the drain plug, and is it white in color???

It's an ivory or off-white color. It's located at the bottom of the radiator (you'll probably have to remove the splash guard to get to it). Another option for draining the coolant is to just pull the lower radiator hose. This is also one of the lowest points on the radiator and will allow for the purging of the coolant. Just make sure you take your radiator cap off otherwise it'll take a week (hyperboly) to drain.
