drain on bottom of radiator, only flush if it's real dirty and brown, otherwise just drain and refill... also in the book ...everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available for FREE to make copies up and repair like a PRO! Dave :)

First, get a "Flush and Fill Kit" with cleaning additive in the auto dept at your local dept. store. Run the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature then shut it off. There is a small drain plug on the underside or back bottom of the radiator. It unscrews to drain the radiator but first carefully release pressure on the system by loosening then removing the radiator cap. Now remove that little drain plugand letit run out. Now follow the directions on theflush kit precisely. Not actually hard at all.

How do you flush the radiator of a '99 gmc safari?

In order to flush the radiator on my 1996 Safari I had to remove the radiator fan cover under the hood (there are 6 bolts holding it in place). You will find a plug on the bottom of the radiator that has to be unscrewed and the old water will drain. I ususally put a hose in the cap and let the engine run (with the heater on) to flush out all the old fluid. Then re-plug the radiator, re-install the fan cover and re-fill with fresh fluid.

How do you flush the radiator of 1999 Chevy S-10?

An easy way to flush a radiator is to remove the bottom hose from the radiator, and put a garden hose in the top fill hole, turn the water on, on the garden hose and let the water push the water out of the radiator. Do not start the truck. This is for flushing a radiator, not an engine. Dont forget to reattatch the bottom hose and refill the radiator as water will also flow out of the engine and will now be low.

How do you flush the radiator in a 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.1L V6 Fwd?

First drain the cooling system by opening the drain in the lower part of the radiator and dispose of the used coolant properly. Then follow the uppper rad hose from the rad to the engine. At the engine there is a housing that houses the thermostat. Take it out and stick it back together temporarily. Take the upper rad hose loose at the radiator and stick the garden hose in the radiator. Start the engine and let it run until the water runs clear. Reinstall the thermostat making sure the spring goes toward the engine. Drain all of the water out of the radiator and fill the radiator up with coolant and you should end up with a 50/50 mix in the radiator.
