If you want to flush the raditor remove the big hoses, don't worry with the drain plug as you can't flush it good enough with the drain open anyway. If your just changing the fluild you can drain it and fill it but thats not flushing it. remove the therostate too and flush the engine and remove the heater hoses and flush them too. As you may not know what kind of antifreeze is in the motor now you need to get all of it out as some kinds of antifreeze don't mix and make a clogging slime instaed of good coolant. Do it right or take it to a shop that will.

SOURCE: Radiator Drain Plug for Camry 99.

depends on what motor you have, it'll either be on the bottom of radiator (you might have to move the cover to get at it) or in the rear of the engine block. if you get at them i'd simply just remove the lower hose from the radiator. just make sure car is compleatly cooled down first.

SOURCE: How hard is it to flush and drain the radiator in

the easiest way that I've found is to just remove the upper, and lower radiator hoses from the engine. point the hoses downward, and spray thru the top hose with a garden hose, also spray down the radiator cap inlet. If the cap is crusty replace it, I also recommend removing the overflow and washing it out if needed. and yes the drain plug is hard to get to, plastic that likes to snap, and not worth messing with

Testimonial: "I agree,seems to be the best way without breaking the plastic petcock and leaving you stranded.Thanks for the info."

How do I flush the radiator


Removing the drain plug and just letting old coolant drain out and then refilling doesn't really flush it out. It only drains what is in the radiator and it doesn't circulate and flush what is in the engine and heater core.
Take radiator cap off, then take top radiator hose off where it comnects to the radiator..only disconnect that side of the radiator hose aim end of hose downwards and leave it there. Take a wet rag and push it into the radiator where the hose was connected..you don't want to push it in so far you have trouble removing after flushing...the wet rag is just to limit the amount of water that will come out of radiator where hose is no longer attached..crank car and coolant will start to slowly come out the vend of radiator hose aimed downward...have a hose or 4 or 5gallons of water...right after you crank the car pour the water or befilling the radiator with the hose...you want to keep the water going in the radiator as to keep it fulI...replace what is coming out of radiator hose...continue to add water until what is coming out of the radiator hose is clear water.. this way the water is circulating through the entire cooling system and engine. When water is coming out clean...turn car off remove rag from radiator and reconnecupper radiator hose..the drainplug is at the bottom of the radiator on the side of radiator that is on the drivers side of the car....remove drain plug and drain water left in radiator..replace drain plug and crank vehicle and fill radiator with coolant recommended for your vehicle... Sounds more complicated than it really is..other option take to a repair shop and have them flush with machine..usually around 100 bucks at ashop..Iif you have any questions Iwill be glad to answer..

2) Then open the hood of the car and touch the radiator. Don’ttouch the or open the radiator if it feels hot to touch. If the radiator iscool to the touch, then loosen the radiator cap with one turn. Wait for 2minutes to make sure the pressure in the radiator is gone. Then remove the radiator cap.
3)Then place the bucket/traybeneath the radiator drain plug to catch the old coolant.Make sure the tray /bucket has at least a 2-gallon capacity.
4)After the old coolant is bleeded out then use the wrench to remove the radiator drain plug fromthe underside of the radiator. In some car models , the drain is not directlyunderneath the radiator but on the backside of the radiator.

How do i change the radiator fluid?


Most radiators have a drain plug on the bottom tank the engine block also has a drain plug . Remove the radiator cap ,open both drains ,let all the coolant run out, if there is no radiator plug remove the lower hose , remove the heater demister hoses, with the heater control on hot flush out all the coolant from the heater radiator. with a garden hose, till the water runs clean, tighten the radiator plug or re fit the hose,put a garden hose into the radiator and flush out till the water at the block plug runs clean ,refit the heater hoses, refit the block plug, fill the radiator from the hose leave the cap off , If it has a overflow tank clean and flush it. start and run engine for 5 minutes top up radiator if needed . stop engine and drain out all water. most important that all old coolant is drained out, only buy the best coolant you can . If you make up your own use only distilled water. keep some to top up with never mix with another brand. Fill radiator with coolant top up over flow tank, run engine top up coolant as needed, refit radiator cap run for another 10 minutes check for leaks,

Flushing antifreeze on a 2006 kia sorento


This procedure makes a bit of a mess and requires catch pans but it is the best way to flush a coolant system without cutting any hoses or adding a flush kit.


If your radiator does not have a drain plug is to remove the LARGE lower radiator hose and drain the anit-freeze. (Even if it does have a drain plug the steps below are the best way) You then plug the lower radiator hose connection on the radiator and have a 2nd person add water to the radiator with a hose. They will need to place a rag over the fill port for the radiator and flush the block until you get clear water from the lower drain hose. Once you get clear water drain off the fresh water by unblocking the lower radiator fitting and flush the radiator. Once you get cleanwater from the radiator connection, reconnect your lower radiator hose. (Tighten the clamp!) Then add your anti-freeze. Remember there will still be a some water in the block so do not be afraid to keep your anit-freeze / water ratio a tad higher because the left over water in the block will dilute it slightly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Radiator Flush needs to be flushed. Where is the drain plug


There may not be a drain plug. You will probably need to disconnect the lower radiator hose to drain radiator.

Want to change out coolent in radiator myself is it a wise choice


Things you will need:
Radiator coolant mixture (get from garage)
Radiator flush fluid (also from garage)
Distilled water (Or if your me garden hose water ;) )

Take off the radiator cap when engine is COOL. Find the drain plug located in the bottom of the radiator (normaly hand tight) and let it drain out into a catch container. Put the drain plug back in, follow the instructions on the flush container topping the radiator back up. Let engine run as directed on bottle and then carefuly undo the radiator cap using a rag as not to burn yourself. Then remove the plug again and drain out the flush fluid. Then repeat the process with the radiator fluid as instructed on the bottle.
