Where is the location of the drain plug for a radiator on a 2006 chevy impala

locating of the radiator drain plug, as well. You access it from inside the engine compartment. It is on the lower left-hand (drivers side) inner corner of the radiator. There are 3 different small hoses running directly in front of the drain plug, which makes it difficult to see. Good luck!

Cant find drain plug on radiator

Not all radiators have a drain plug, if theres a drain plug its located at the bottom of the radiator, depending on the model car or truck it will be locate on the backside of the radiator facing the engine , look on the rightside and then the leftside and in the middle, if this one doesnt have a drain then just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the radiator, sometimes its hard to see the drain so ook closely. good day

I need to bleed the radiator system. Where is the bleed valve?

Uncap the radiator, and unscrew the radiator drain plug. Normally, this drain plug is located on the inside bottom of the radiator, but models will vary. Once the drain plug is unscrewed, coolant will rush out into the drain pan. If there is not a drain plug, then disconnecting the lower radiator hose will be adequate.

My mazda mpv keeps overheating after i changed the water pump and thermostat.. how do i bleed my cooling system

It could be the radiator is bad. There is a plug located on the bottom of the radiator. Unscrew the plug and let the fluid drain, you should be able to see if there is rust or gunk in the water/antifreeze. Then use a garden hose and put it in the hole used to fill the radiator and let the water run.

How do i replace a thermostat on a 2003 mazda protoge lx

I can remember step by step, but you will probably need to remove the skid plate under the engine area directly below the radiator. After the radiator is completely cooled down locate the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator. Place a large bucket under and drain it. You may need to loosen the cap on top to allow it to drain quicker. Then follow the radiator hose from the BOTTOM of the radiator to the engine block. That is where it is located. The hose will connect to a cap held on by 2 or 3 bolts. Remove that to get to it. Notice how sits in there when you take it out to make sure you sit the new one in correctly.

Radiator drain plug

Just recently found this on my MPV. get on your back and slide just under the front of the van. just behind the bumper you'll see several holes about 3/4" to 1" diameter. there is one located more toward the driver side. there is a large black Phillips head screw. this should be the drain for the coolant/antifreeze. if you look inside under the hood, or through some of the other holes, you should be able to see where this connects to the radiator. hope that helps.
