On the bottom left of the radiator is the drain plug. It is on the side facing the motor. If you do not see the other way to drain the radiator of the coolant is to remove the bottom radiator hose.

Here is a picture of the radiator with an arrow pointing to the drain plug.

    I would like to know the location for engine drain plug, not the location for radiator drain ****.

    There is no drain plug on the engine for the coolent.



    Now if you would like to drain the oil then you need to get under the truck and on the oil pan is the drain plug for the motor. It is on the very bottom at a 45 degree angle.



    If I read your question right you said that you need to replace the coolent. Last sentence before Thanks.



    Here is a link on how to do it.

    Thank you for help.



    I need to know where the engine coolant drain plug is, not the oil change procedure.



    In a toyota corollan repair manual, there are two coolant drain plugs: one is called engine drain plug, another is called radiator drain ****.

    Ok here you go.



    It's below the EGR by several inches on the right rear of the engine block.



    Also read the link below first. Give it time to load.

    you dont need to mess with that, just take the lower radiator hose off and get the heat running. that way you can run water through it, and get everything out of the heater core too. when it runs clear, its flushed.

Temp sensor on 1998 toyota tacoma 3400


The engine coolant temperature sensor is usually located on the thermostat housing. This sensor controls the readings of the coolant temperature gauge in your vehicle when the ignition switch is ON .Here's a link to the sensor. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Drain the coolant from the vehicle.
  2. Disconnect the engine wiring protector from the brackets.
  3. Disconnect the sensor wire.
  4. Using a 19mm deep socket, remove the sensor and gasket.
To install:
  1. Apply a thin coat of Loctite or equivalent to the switch. By hand, carefully thread the switch into the engine. If resistance is felt at all, remove the switch and inspect the threads for any damage. Continue to install the switch. Once installed, tighten to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  2. Connect the sensor wiring.
  3. Install the engine wire protector to the brackets.
  4. Refill the coolant. Start the engine and check for leaks.

How can I change fuel injectors on a Toyota Tacoma 98 4 cylinder


The Toyota Tacoma has a fuel injector that mixes fuel with air. This technology almost completely replaced carburetors in the late 1980s and its programmable firmware allows the same hardware to be used with different fuels. A fuel injector is only a nozzle and a valve; it still requires a pump to inject the fuel into the engine.
    • 1 Determine which fuel injector your Toyota Tacoma will need. This depends not only on the make and model, but also the engine size. Models made before 2005 may have a 2.4L, 2.7L or 3.4L engine. The current version may have a 2.7L or 4.0L engine.
    • 2 Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the engine under cover subassembly and drain the engine coolant. Detach the intake air connector and disconnect the throttle body motor assembly with a socket wrench.
    • 3 Disconnect the fuel lines and remove the fuel pressure pulsation damper assembly with a socket wrench. Unplug the electrical connectors for the fuel and vacuum switching valve. Remove the engine wiring harness clamp and the air conditioning compressor clutch connector with a socket wrench.
    • 4 Remove the two fuel rail mounting bolts with a socket wrench and lift out the fuel rail with the injectors still attached. Pull out the fuel injectors and discard the old gaskets.
    • 5 Use new gaskets and install the new fuel injectors by reversing the removal procedure.
    • 6 Fill the coolant reservoir with coolant of the proper grade and type. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

I need the location of the coolant temerature sensor on a 99 taco


Its at the rear of the engine, close to the firewall. Look at the intake part of the engine block for 2 wires that connect into the sensor plug. It is installed vertically.

Replace starter


Disconnect the battery, then crawl under the truck and locate the starter, remove the plug going to the solenoid (small brown lead w plastic clip) . then the power wire that goes from the battery to the main starter terminal (12 mm nut) locate the 2 starter bolts 14 mm and unbolt the starter and remove. install in reverse order. ON the 4 wheel drives you may need to remove the skid plates over the bottom of the engine to access the starter.
