SOURCE: Drained radiator to change coolant.

Remove cap from radiator and fill this way, the meaning of the word reservoir remove oir from the end and you are left with the word reserve, the mass of the coolant is located in the radiator, the resovoir holds the coolant that is exsess when the engine is hot and the water has expanded,

Engine Diagrams

Hello. Here a non-photo diagram. Hope this helps!!!

The thermostat is located on the side of the water pump, the water pump is located just above the a/c compressor, the thermostat is fed coolant from the radiators lower radiator hose.
Thermostat :
1. drain coolant and tighten drain plug ( easier method : remove radiator cap, get big drain pan, place drain pan under lower radiator hose to radiator connection, remove clamp, slowly remove hose, allow coolant to drain into pan, now is a good time to remove radiator hose and clamp from thermostat housing )
2. remove thermostat cover / cap ( easiest to get at this when front of car is supported by jack stands and right hand side lower cover is removed ).
3. thermostat cap is held on by 3 bolts / remove thermostat.

You will notice that the thermostat's air bleed hole is pointing up and lines up with notch in water pump housing,,

ATTENTION :failure to install new thermostat in the correct location will cause engine to overheat.

1. install new thermostat to water pump, make sure air bleed hole lines up with notch, install and tighten bolts, install a new lower radiator hose, fill cooling system.

thermostat # 17670-77E00
lower radiator hose #17854-65G20
hose clamp #09401-36403
upper radiator hose # 17852-65G20

2000 plymouth breeze found drain plug on radiator turned it nothing came out i put 2 pitchers of water in so i know there is liquid in it

The area behind the drain plug on the radiator is likely plugged up with debris. Removing the lower radiator hose will do the same thing and a little faster. You also run the risk of the drain plug leaking if you remove it. Removing the lower hose will prevent this from happening as well. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

I want to learn how to drain and flush my radiator. I need help on how to do so without making as mess

well its bound to make a little mess but you should have a drain plug on the radiator at the bottom towards the engine side on one of the 2 tanks (sides of radiator ) unscrew drain plug and let drain into a pail or pan ( 2 gallon ) after it drains remove lower radiator hose. use a garden hose and fill radiator and let it flush for a little, hook lower radiator hose back, tighten drain plug and fill with a 50/50 mix new antifreeze,

Radiator replacement

Start by removing the shroud over the radiator area. There should be little plastic screws in it holding it on. Then drain the coolant from the old radiator. there should be a drain on the lower passenger side of the radiator facing the rear. looks like a white nut, turn that until fluid runs out. Make sure you have something available to catch the coolant. I used a small rubber hose attached to the end of drain to direct it to container. After all fluid has drained, disconnect the overflow hose running to the plastic bottle on right of radiator. Remove the 3 bolts holding the bottle in place, and remove. You will not have to remove fan and shroud from vehicle if you just remove the four bolts holding the blade itself to the pulley you can then slide them back far enough away from radiator to get it out. That will make things much easier. there are two other hoses that attach to the radiator 1 on upper passanger side and 1 on lower driver side, remove those. Then remove the two transmission cooling lines from the radiator and plug the ends to prevent dirt getting in. Once all hoses and lines are detached from radiator remove the two mounting bolts at top of the radiator where it attaches. Those are the only bolts holding it in. it rest inside grooves at bottom so you just pull up the radiator and you have it removed. Installation is the opposite of removal. Try to get your plastic (degas) bottle as clean as you can if your reusing . If radiator will not drain through plug for whatever reason, removing the lower driver side hose will drain very quickly but be ready for a rush of coolant. I hope this helps you out.

Where is the drain plug for the radiator

Should be a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator that unscrews out. It looks like a wing nut has been welded to a bolt on the end of it. Another way to do this is just pull off the bottom hose.

Where is the engine coolant drain bolt on a 2003 2azfe camry? i found the radiator drain but can't find the engine drain plug-a photo would be great

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

Most drain plug is make 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


I just did a FREE write up on air purge from coolant system and how to detect initial state of blown head gasket at the Fixya tip selection.

My heat will suddenly go cold, then after a while it will work again. i think it may be the thermostat, but i'm not sure. I have all the tools to do a thermostat change, I just don't know where it is on...

Removal & Installation CAUTION When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze, and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely on jackstands.
  2. From the driver's side portion of the radiator, open the draincock and drain the radiator so the coolant level is below the coolant outlet elbow which houses the thermostat. If the radiator has been replaced, the replacement unit may not have a draincock. In this case the lower radiator hose will have to be loosened and removed to allow for the coolant to drain out.
On some models it may be necessary to remove the distributor in order to gain access to the thermostat housing mounting bolts.
  1. Remove the outlet elbow retaining bolts and position the elbow clear of the intake manifold or cylinder head to provide access to the thermostat.

Installation is in reverse order....

The housing that "holds" your thermostat is right below the distributor.
