Just recently found this on my MPV. get on your back and slide just under the front of the van. just behind the bumper you'll see several holes about 3/4" to 1" diameter. there is one located more toward the driver side. there is a large black Phillips head screw. this should be the drain for the coolant/antifreeze. if you look inside under the hood, or through some of the other holes, you should be able to see where this connects to the radiator. hope that helps.

My mazda mpv keeps overheating after i changed the water pump and thermostat.. how do i bleed my cooling system

It could be the radiator is bad. There is a plug located on the bottom of the radiator. Unscrew the plug and let the fluid drain, you should be able to see if there is rust or gunk in the water/antifreeze. Then use a garden hose and put it in the hole used to fill the radiator and let the water run.

Cant find radiator drain plug

All radiators dont have them...I have seen 4 different brands(Radiators) for your vehicle, and neither one had a drain plug...However if you want to flush the system you can just unhook your lower radiator hose, and do it that way...

How do I add antifreeze to a Mazda 2000 MPV 2.5L radiator? The only thing I could find that resembles a radiator cap is on the reservoir.

That's it!
You need to drain the radiator enough to add antifreeze/coolant. Thre is a drain plug/screw at the bottom corner of the radiator on the driver side.
You should drain it completely and close the valve then add coolant at the proper mixture.

Mazda MPV Coolant Loss (but no overheat)

i had the same thing on my wifes 2000 mpv van...the ends of the radiator are made of some sort of composite type had a slight crack in it....wasn't obvious until it got worse and started streaming water from it when warmed up....even after it cooled enough not to be spewing it was hard to actually see the crack though a few inches long....was hard to even see where the water and antifreeze mixture was coming from until i took out the radiator

Oil change

It's a regular 12mm bolt (it doesn't look like a "plug") protruding horizontally from the back corner of the oil pan (aluminum pan with a waffle pattern, pretty much centered just in front of the front axle).
