Where is the Radiator drain plug located on a 2002 Town and Country Limited 3.8L


If equipped with a drain plug ( some manufacturers don't supply one ) it will be located at the lower left or lower right of the radiator. It may have a butterfly type screw or could have a recessed phillips head screw.

I can't locate the ac / condenser drain plug on 2004 grand cherokee limited. looked every where.


The drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator, close by the lower radiator hose. If you have a radiator without the drain plug, disconnect the radiator lower hose (radiator side) to drain the radiator. Be sure to connect it back together after you flush the system, and before you top it off.

I want to flush the radiator on my 2001 gmc jimmy. Is the radiator draincock covered by a plastic shielding? Also does the draincock have an O-ring that would need to be replaced? Thanks. Ian v.


there should be a drain **** on either side of the lower radiator. you might have to remove the splash guard to get to it easier, If it is not leaking then the o ring does not need replaced when you drain, the drain plug does not have to be removed all the way, it has a drain hole on it when the plug is loosened to a certain point it will allow to drain. If you remove all the way then go ahead and inspect o ring and replace before installing again. but always lube an old or new rubber o ring with (oil) before installing. Installing a dry rubber o ring will result in possible failure.

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.

How to change radiator 1998 oldmobile intrigue


Hope this helps you. Here are the basics. There are many problems you may run up against (frozen bolts, stubborn or cracked hoses, rusted clamps, etc)that may need to be fixed or replaced before proceeding: SHut off engine, allow to cool completely. Disconnect the cooling fan, remove negative battery terminal connection. Drain radiator by opening draincock and/or removing lower radiator hose, collecting coolant in a drain pan. Do not let it go onto the ground - bad for environment! Open top radiator hose to allow remainder of coolant to flow out. A few quarts of coolant will remain in the engine block. You will want to totally flush and refill AFTER replacing the radiator to get all the crud out of the system. Unbolt radiator and disconnect any other items still attached (transmission cooler, temp sensor wires, etc.). Remove radiator and replace with new, reattaching all items removed from old radiator. Inspect other items and possibly replace suspects. Reattach hoses and make sure the clamps are tightened without pinching hoses excessively. Do a flush job with water/radiator flush, making sure the water runs clear out the draincock. Instructions for flushing the cooling system are usually printed on the radiator flush bottle. Be sure the heater is on and the engine warms up completely to open the thermostat. SHut off engine and drain as much water as will leave. Fill with 50% coolant mix (Dexcool or equivalent). Estimate water remaining in the engine and add 100% coolant to balance. COmplete fill with 50% mix. Remove air by running engine until warmed with the radiator cap off, adding coolant mix along the way.

Can't find radiator drain valve on 2003 Buick Rendezvous


You will have to jack the car up and get under it to get to the drain valve, it is located on the back side of the radiator tank, drivers side, if not there then opposite side..

Where is the radiator plug located


If you can't find the drain plug don't worry about it...half the time they don't work properly anyhow...Let the system cool down and remove the lower radiator hose at the radiator. everything will drain out really well from there. As for the tie wrap, it won't hurt anything. If you can get it out, fine but it can't go anywhere from there.
When you remove the hose, use a good sized drain pan. Coolant will come out quickly in large volume.

I was told it didn't have one but my husband did find it. You have to remove the mud guard located under the radiator and it will be on the drivers side of the radiator.

Im trying to flush my radiator and the draincock is only turning quarter turned and nothing comes out and i am worried about breaking draincock any advice


The only way I've ever flushed a radiator is by removing bottom hose and letting fluid drain from there. With a truck, this should be a piece of cake, due to the bottom clearance. I wouldn't mess with the deaincock as you may break something, and get to spend money fixing that too. Just my 2 cents..Good luck
