Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
There is one on the side of each bank. It is pictured on page 1-23 of the Haynes Repair Manual for the 1996 through 1998 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable, photo 26.5. The block coolant drain plugs are one to two inches above the oil pan rail on each side of the engine block.
If you are also looking for the radiator drain fitting, it is on the bottom left corner of the radiator. On some models it may be difficult to access due to the front bumper cover and the plastic panels attached to the back uderside of the cover.
The car is rated low for service and repair accessibility. Poor design by Ford's engineers due to restrictions by Ford's accountants. You can purchase the Haynes Repair Manuals at most auto parts stores or online.

1-Place a large drain pan beneath the radiator drain plug. The drain plug is located on the passenger side at the very bottom of the radiator on the engine side.
3-Loosen the drain plug. On the 2000 Blazer, the drain plug is a wing-nut type of plug. Twist it with your fingers until the coolant begins to drain.
