Hello! The drain plug is located near the front passenger side wheel well...Open it up and drain the radiator... What I like to do next is remove the t-stat and replace waterneck... Now fill radiator with water (actually fill degas bottle) and run engine with upper hose removed at radiator... Flush until only clean clear water comes out of hose... Drain radiator, replace t-stat, fill radiator with coolant and you're done...Guru....Saailer

Where is the radiator drain plug on a 2008 ford expedition? I've been searching for an hour and can't find it. I also have a 2000 expedition and easily found the drain plug on the passenger side.

Did you look under it, at the bottom of the radiator
for an allen hex plug -- possibly

You know it is on the bottom,so why remove any
plastic covers on top,can't hardly work on that vehicle
anyway, it's so big & high up

You may have to remove bottom covers, to access the radiator

Did you try googling a picture?

I would leave the novice part out, as you should be able to
figure it out, given your experience

If you go to a parts site,you can see all sides of the radiator

Need to do your research, days before your going out
to work on vehicles

How do i drain the radiater on a expedition xlt

There should be a drain on the bottom of the radiator on the pass, side. A butter-fly twist is usually installed, just turn it and it will open up to drain., once open, you can pull the plug completely out and it will drain faster.

How to properly drain engine coolant

Get a large drain pan ready and remove the radiator cap when the engine is cold. On the bottom of the radiator there is a pitcock which is usually plastic that is screwed in the drain hole. Slowly remove it until coolant comes out. Once you remove it completely coolant will come out quickly. Once it is drained remove the lower radiator hose to drain what is left. This will drain 85% to 90% of the coolant.*** Please rate me on this answer.***

Drained old coolent,O/M says it holds 20 qt;s only got 8 qt;s out,engine warms up quick,but heater takes 20/25 mins

You have to consider that the hose and heater cores hold fluid that will stay in the system so when you drain your radiator the system will hold the rest.If your vehicle has rear heat /ac the system has alot of hose that will hold coolant.There is an option of changeing the thermostat.and once you remove the hose and housing more fluid will be removed.

Cant find drain plug on radiator for 2000 ford expedition

The radiator drain plug is on passenger side of the radiator tank at the bottom. You can use pliers to loosen it. Be careful that it does NOT come out, only loosen it enough to drain the anti freeze.
