Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
With the drain open nothing is coming out? Did you remove the radiator cap? You can try removing the petcock completely and see if there is any gunk blocking the hole. If there is you can gently poke around in there trying to free it. If that doesn't work you can run the engine with radiator cap on and the drain open, the pressure and heat might free what ever is blocking it. Or if you have access to a coolant pressure tester you can hook that up and pump some pressure in the system to try and get it going. Be careful and stay clear of the drain opening when attempting either of these methods.

The sensor is on the passnger side of the radiator below the radiator cap. It is black and square and has a single plug at the bottom. It is held onto the radiator by a metal retaining clip. Remove the clip and the sensor pulls out of the radiator. Disconnect the wire by pulling carefully on the plastic lock and pull on the plug. Fluid will leak out to level of sensor. Drain or place catch basin below sensor plug to catch radiator fluid. Sensor can be purchased through a dealer for around $70 US, or Auto-Zone for under $40 US. Your choice.
