The dealer should be able to order the correct drain plug for you. Do not lose the rubber washer. Also be careful not to over tighten the new plug when installing. If you take the threaded piece of the plug to a hardware store you may be able match up a short brass plug that will fit (most hardware stores do not have a big supply of metric hardware).

Where is the coolant drain plug


On the bottom of the radiator. There will be a little plastic valve that looks like a butterfly. Spin this to loosen it, and it will let coolant flow out.

Where is the radiator drain plug located on the 2004 Chevy Colorado? (Drain ****??)


The drain plug is located 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.

Where is the drain plug on the radiator buick regal 2000


Many newer automobile no longer have a Radiator Drain ****. If you do have one it will be located near the bottom of one of the Radiator Tanks in the "Most Inaccessible place imaginable". All you need to do is loosen the Hose Clamp on the Lower Radiator Hose and work the Hose free to drain the system. Be careful not to damage the Plastic Radiator Tank in the process of loosening the Hose.

Where is the radiator drain plug on 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer


They usually put them in the most out of the way spot, where the coolant will run everywhere but in the drain pan. What I do if I can is siphon the coolant out. Take a piece of 1/4 in. steel or copper line about 3ft. long and a piece of clear plastic line, about 6ft long, that will fit snugly on the metel line. Take radiator cap off and carefully lower the metel line to the bottom of the radiator, now use a vacuum pump, or **** on the plastic line and get a siphon started. By using clear line you can see the coolant coming so you don't get a mouth full. Good luck.

How do I flush the coolant on the 2002 tundra V6?


PROCEDURE TO FLUSH
  • Park the Toyota Tundra on a level surface and set the parking brake. Then, with the engine off, touch the radiator to gauge its temperature. If the radiator is still warm, allow it to cool off before you start next step.
  • Twist the radiator cap one full turn, pause for a few seconds and then fully remove the cap. You want to pause to relieve any internal pressure inside the radiator. Opening a pressurized or hot radiator can cause it to spew hot coolant and burn anyone it comes into contact with.
  • Position a bucket or tray with a two-gallon capacity underneath the radiator, below the drain plug. To access the drain plug, you may have to remove the plastic engine undercover, which should be on the driver's side of the Toyota Tundra's radiator. Use a socket wrench to open the plug.
  • Open the drain plug and allow the existing coolant to drain completely into the bucket. Once complete, pour the old coolant into a sealable container for proper disposal.
  • Put the drain bucket back under the radiator and close the drain plug. Then, fill the radiator with distilled water. Next, open the drain plug to let the water flow into the bucket. Replicate this procedure until the water runs debris free out the radiator.
  • Replace the radiator drain plug and pour fresh coolant into the radiator until it's within an inch of overflowing. With the Toyota Tundra, you need to use the same coolant that came with the truck. Most likely, it is Toyota Long Life red coolant, but consult the owner's manual to be sure.
  • Start the engine of the Tundra and turn the heating fan to high. Allow it to run until the cooling fan turns on two separate times.
  • Switch the Toyato Tundra off and check the coolant level. If it is lower than before, add more coolant. If not, put the radiator cap back on and close the hood.
  1. TIPS
  • You will need 2 gallons of coolant for the four-valve Toyota Tundra and 3 gallons of coolant for the six-valve model.
  • Using tap water from a hose is an alternative to flushing with distilled water, but tap water can leave sediments behind that can damage your coolant system
WARNING
  • Because coolant is extremely toxic to people and pets, it's imperative that you dispose of the old coolant properly.

Where is the drain plug on a 03 corolla radiator


The drain plug should be on the bottom left side and its a white wingnut you undo and when you do it back up to fill it make sure you dont do it too tight or too loose as its only plastic and can strip if youre too rough with it
