Best Answer

Using your owner's manual or your eyeballs, locate your radiator's drain plug. It could be anywhere along the bottom of the radiator, and will be either a screw plug, bolt plug or a petcock (simple drain valve). Be sure you have your used coolant receptacle in place under the drain before you open it up. Look at the bottom of the radiator facing the engine. I there is none then pull off the lower hose.

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 on a 2001 dodge grand caravan?

Never flush a radiator. When flusing the radiator theres no way to be 100% sure that you got everything out, and flushing a radiator will only losen things up that can get into the engine, clogging it up causing you BIG problems... Its okay to drain and refill the radiator, but never flush one. All of those deposits that's getting lose, some will come out but what doesnt will find its way into your engine, causing you a huge headache.


Where is the Radiator drain plug on 2006 Pontiac grand prix?

Look along the bottom of the side radiator tanks. If there is a drain valve/petcock it will face inward towards the engine. If you can't find one then the radiator doesn't have one. Radiator drains have fallen out of favor over the years because they cost more to produce and it's one more place for coolant to leak out. If there is no drain then you will have to remove the lower radiator hose.

How do you flush out a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire radiator when you can't find the drain plug?

It may or may not have a drain plug for the radiator. Look at the bottom of the radiator usually on the passenger side of the car. It doesn't really look like an actual plug. It is more like a plastick wing nut, just unscrew it and it should drain. Some radiators don't have drain plugs at all. If it doesn't just take off the lower radiator hose from either the radiator or the engine block and do it that way i think the sunfire drain is on the driverside of radiator facing forward. it should be a 1/4 inch hole in center. you have to turn and pull to drain. be careful not to damage plug or radiator.
