Under the radiator on the bottom of drivers side there is an plastic bolt with an hole . You will need an 1/4" ratchet to remove it. It is the drain plug . Look from the front of the car.

How to flush coolant on 2004 grand prix


  • Move your badass w-body (a.k.a. Pontiac Grand Prix) to a level area and set the parking brake. Pop the hood and touch the radiator. If it's warm let it cool before you continue.
  • Twist the radiator cap one full turn (Remember to be careful because even when radiators are cool they can still erupt coolant)
  • Place any type of container (bucket [but has to be able to hold 2 gallons]) underneath the radiator and blow the drain plug. (The drain plug on your Grand Prix is on the driver's side bottom of the radiator facing the engine.)
  • Loosen the drain plug and let the old coolant to drain completely. (You may need a wrench to loosen the drain plug)
  • Dispose the old coolant in a sealable container (The coolant is very toxic to people and pets, so you gotta be careful)
  • Shut the radiator drain plug and fill the radiator with water.
  • Run car for a little bit and repeat the process again. (Let car cool, and drain water)
  • Close the drain plug and fill the radiator with fresh coolant until it's about an inch from overflowing. (DO NOT USE ORANGE DEX COOLANT IT IS HARMFUL FOR YOUR HEADGAKETS) You will need 3 gallons of coolant (SE, GT, GT1, GT2, GTP, GTP Comp G.) and 4 for the GXP model. Be sure to check the drain plug for any leakage.
  • Start your car and turn the heating system to high. Allow the car to keep running until the cooling fan turns on twice. After that happens, switch off the engine and check the coolant level. If it went down, add more coolant. If not, put the radiator cap back on and close the hood.

Trouble draining coolant on 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis


The engine holds coolant and so does the heater core, the core not much but the engine holds maybe 2 or so gallons, the engine has coolant in the intake ,heads and block. to say you can drain it all complete is impossible, unless you find drain plugs on the side of the engine block and remove them, there is one on each side of the block, if you removed those you would get 90% of the coolant,with also draining the radiator. the only other way would be with a flush machine. i am a tech and the way you said the coolant was clean and you drained all you could then i would say if you keep doing it the way you are you will be fine, i drain mine the same way every year which is to soon for some but not me and i have never had a problem. the only time i drain the blocks at work is when people dont change the coolant for years and it gets rusted, then i remove the plugs. keep doing the flush the way you are and it will be fine, good day. have a good day.

Where do i pour the fluid back into the engine i need the exact location of fluid compartment.


By the fluid, I am not sure if you mean the oil, or the coolant. If you are talking about hte oil, then the drain plug is on the bottom of the engine on the oil pan. There is a 15mm bolt that is on the very bottom of the engine. You put the oil back in the engine on the top left side. It will have a picture of an oil can.

Where is the plug to change the engine coolant for a 2004 grand-am pontic


If you are to change the engine coolant first be sure that the engine is cool. Remove the radiator cap and unscrew the drain plug of the radiator "pet-****" located either on the bottom or low side of the radiator, Once the radiator is empty, fill again with water and run the engine. Repeat this process if necessary. Wait till it cools and drain again. Ad the coolant as per manufacturer's guidelines and complete with water. This should clean your engine coolant as well as your reservoir.

Is there a radiator drain plug on a 2002Pontiac Grand Prix 3.1 L


The textbook method is to remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.

Most drain plug ismake of inexpensive nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.

The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.

Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant

Trying to change coolant


If drain is difficult to reach or won't open properly, remove the lower radiator hose. You can easily drain system from there. Make sure you use a good drain pan and that the engine is cool. Once removed coolant comes out really fast from there.
