  1. Open the hood.
  2. Look for the fill spout.
  3. From the fill spout go strait down the back of the radiator.
  4. The drain spout is right there on the backside of the radiator towards the bottom (see pic).
  5. Turn with a pair of Vice Grips or stick a little screwdriver in the hole in the center of drain tab.

May be true, some car manufacturers save $5 by not having one. Have to remove lower hose to dump radiator.

Cant find drain plug on radiator


Not all radiators have a drain plug, if theres a drain plug its located at the bottom of the radiator, depending on the model car or truck it will be locate on the backside of the radiator facing the engine , look on the rightside and then the leftside and in the middle, if this one doesnt have a drain then just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the radiator, sometimes its hard to see the drain so ook closely. good day

hi,, yeah you just turn it out, right to tighten, left to slacken, remember to remove your cap and leave a hose of running water flowing through the radiator to help wash out all the old stuff.

The radiator drain plug is on passenger side of the radiator tank at the bottom. You can use pliers to loosen it. Be careful that it does NOT come out, only loosen it enough to drain the anti freeze.

Cant locate drain plug on my radiator on my chevy colorado


The textbook method is to remove the drain plug 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
