It does not have one, the best way to drain the system is to remove the lower radiator hose.

I'm trying to do a coolant flush and I can't find the petcock plug on my 1998 Dodge Durango. Please send video link or picture thank you in advance


Some radiators do not have a petcock, and you need to remove the lower radiator hose to drain your coolant.

I need to drain the radiator to flush it and the heater core and i cant find a drain plug in my 1998 ford taurus where do i find this drain plug to drain it


There is a drain on the bottom of the radiator that has "ears" on it. It should be on the extreme lower left or right. Use pliers to open it up.

How do i find drain plug on the radiator for a 1998 gmc sierra truck


Not all radiators have drain plugs, if it does, it is on the inside bottom, just a petcock valve. Most of the time you just pull the hose and dump into a pan or flat bucket. Hope this helps.

On my 92 ford explorer my radiator petcock is leaking is there any quick fixes


If you can remove it, you can replace it either with the correct size NPT pipe plug or another petcock. I generally use a plug with teflon tape on the threads and drain by removing the lower hose...It's faster and easier than using the drain!

How do I change the lower radiator hose


Cooling System
Ensure that the engine is completely cool prior to starting this service.
1. Remove the recovery tank or radiator cap.
2. Raise and support the vehicle.
3. Place a drain pan of sufficient capacity under the radiator and open the petcock (drain) on the radiator.
è Plastic petcocks easily bind. Before opening a plastic radiator petcock, spray it with some penetrating lubricant.
4. Drain the cooling system completely.
5. Close the petcock.
6. Remove the drain pan.
7. Lower the vehicle.
8. Determine the capacity of the cooling system, then property refill the system with a 50/50 mixture of fresh coolant and distilled water.
9. Leave the recovery tank or radiator cap off to aid in bleeding the system.
10. Start the engine and allow it to idle until the thermostat opens (the upper radiator hose will become hot). The coolant level should go down, this is normal as the system bleeds the air pockets out of the system.
11. Refill the system with coolant to the proper level.
12. Turn the engine OFF and check for leaks.
