Hello there:
you should have a drain on the bottom of the radiator you will have to look for it on the driver side of the car you should see a twist style valve you will have to open it to drain if no valve you just may need to take the lower radiator hose off and drain it this way just remember to remove the radiator cap to allow to drain a little faster...hope this helps you out please leave a review thanks sincerely D.Jones

I would not use the drain-plug. With older cars it can not reseal properly. Just disconnect the bottom hose and afterwards refit the hose.

To access the drain **** you first need to remove the black plastic shield that is covering it.
It will be just under the drivers side front. You will notice a small round spout extruding just above the the drain ****.

If it is an original drain **** then it should be white and can be removed by either using a socket, a hex tool, or a crescent wrench.

Mine broke the second time when I was trying to remove it. I went to Autozone to purchase a new one and it costs no more than $3 something.

Anyways the replacement ones don't require any tools to remove or it on.

Changed the rack in a 99 taurus but its fine then when you turn the car off fluid blows out the top of powr steeering pump

HI there it's must likely that you have too much fluid in and or there is air in the system.
to fix problem drain power steering sys by disconnecting one of the hoses at the pump
and saving the fluid to reuse.
ones system is drained reconnect hose and fill 1/4 of the tank .
start engine and turn steering wheel all the way too the left&right three times doing these
you are removing air from the system
now with engine running and steering wheel at center check fluid level and fill to the mark
on the stick .

good luck

I want to flush the radiator... how do I do that?

FIrst drain the previous liquid in the radiator.

Take the Drivers side "fog light" out(only 2 screws), and access the bottom raidiator hose behind the light. Loosen the clamp and pull the hose away from the raidiator untill drained completly, put hose back on, refill with water, then drain again.(repeat as much as needed until flushed to your desire) I prefer to run the engine a few minutes between flushes, but "YOU MUST MAKE SURE ENGINE HAS COOLED" before draining the fluid.

I am going to attemp to change the tranny fluid in my '92 Taurus. Where is the drain plug underneath and is it true that it takes 12.8 quarts of fluid? Is there anything else I should know before I start?

well first theres no plug to drain fluid, you will have to remove the trany pan, the pan gasket and filter need to be replaced,next thing is that it doesnt hold 12.8 qts, thats only if it was dry empty,just dropping the pan doesnt get all the oil out, the converter is still full and the lines and cooler,i would replace the filter and pan gasket then take to a garage and have a bg trany service done, this service gets 100% of the old oil out,your doing a drain and fill, this only takes about 6 qts,good luck.

Do you know the correct procedure for removing a power steering pump from a 2001 Ford Taurus OHV engine? Does the pulley have to be removed first in-vehicle? Thanks for your help

Loosen the belt and remove it from the pump pulley. Disconnect the lower hose to drain remaining fluid from the pump. You can tie this hose up or fit a plug into the end of it to stop unnecessary fluid drain. Disconnect the other hose and tie it or plug it. Now the only thing holding your pump are the mounting bolts. Remove them and pull your pump out...Voila!
