Re: drain drain **** for Sonata 2000
To my knowledge, the radiator drain plug is at the lower right side of the radiator which is difficult to get at. In most cases, a workaround is to loosen/remove the lower radiator hos attachment to the radiator.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My online Sonata manual shows these possibilities, but does not identify which applies specifically to 2000 Sonata. Also, when you talk to the dealership parts counter, you'll need to know whether your 2000 Sonata is (a) 4-cylinder 2.4L MFI DOHC engine, or (b) 6-cylinder 2.5L MFI DOHC engine. Its easy to tell - just count your spark plug wires.

You first have to drain the radiator, then you diconnect the heater hoses to your heater core .in the engine compartment.
Then you remove the cover off the heater core assembly under the passenger side , under the glove box.
Then you take straps off the heater core off. and replace . Install every thing you removed previously and refill your radiator and your done.
I did some checking and found that there is little to no info available,the only mention was that the internal filter is not user serviceable.Autozone sells a screw on external filter for your year and model but they don't show the location,try checking the trans oil cooler for the screw on filter.
