Bottom right hand side, a pair of pliers turn it counterclockwise, and it will drain. You can purchase radiator flush and fluid at any discount store or parts store. Which brand is totally up to you as it is a choice just like oil, soda, etc in other words on is just as good as the other. There are directions on how to flush the radiator and I prefer the antifreeze that is already mixed 50/50. Hope this helps Tim

Flush the coolant on the 2002 tundra


PROCEDURE TO FLUSH
  • Park the Toyota Tundra on a level surface and set the parking brake. Then, with the engine off, touch the radiator to gauge its temperature. If the radiator is still warm, allow it to cool off before you start next step.
  • Twist the radiator cap one full turn, pause for a few seconds and then fully remove the cap. You want to pause to relieve any internal pressure inside the radiator. Opening a pressurized or hot radiator can cause it to spew hot coolant and burn anyone it comes into contact with.
  • Position a bucket or tray with a two-gallon capacity underneath the radiator, below the drain plug. To access the drain plug, you may have to remove the plastic engine undercover, which should be on the driver's side of the Toyota Tundra's radiator. Use a socket wrench to open the plug.
  • Open the drain plug and allow the existing coolant to drain completely into the bucket. Once complete, pour the old coolant into a sealable container for proper disposal.
  • Put the drain bucket back under the radiator and close the drain plug. Then, fill the radiator with distilled water. Next, open the drain plug to let the water flow into the bucket. Replicate this procedure until the water runs debris free out the radiator.
  • Replace the radiator drain plug and pour fresh coolant into the radiator until it's within an inch of overflowing. With the Toyota Tundra, you need to use the same coolant that came with the truck. Most likely, it is Toyota Long Life red coolant, but consult the owner's manual to be sure.
  • Start the engine of the Tundra and turn the heating fan to high. Allow it to run until the cooling fan turns on two separate times.
  • Switch the Toyato Tundra off and check the coolant level. If it is lower than before, add more coolant. If not, put the radiator cap back on and close the hood.
TIPS
  • You will need 2 gallons of coolant for the four-valve Toyota Tundra and 3 gallons of coolant for the six-valve model.
  • Using tap water from a hose is an alternative to flushing with distilled water, but tap water can leave sediments behind that can damage your coolant system
WARNING
  • Because coolant is extremely toxic to people and pets, it's imperative that you dispose of the old coolant properly.

Where is drain plug on radiator so i can flush the radiator.


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.

Radiator flush


The drain plug should be located on the drivers side on bottom of radiator. Should be a flat tab that you can use to unscrew it. Or the faster/messier way of doing it, is to pull of lower radiator hose. Alot faster but alot harder to catch coolant to reuse.
