There is a drain plug underneath the radiator It will be on the bottom right if you are facing your vehicle. Then fill from your Radiator.

first you will want to locate the petcock (radiator drain) it should be near the bottom of the radiator on the side opposite the lower hose. simply turn the petcock (do not fully remove) the petcock is designed to let the fluid out without having to be completely removed. in order to expedite draining of fluid remove the radiator cap and there should also be small brass "vent" screw, its located near where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine and also within 2 inches of the thermostat. something else that i do to get some of the fluid from the heater core out is to squeeze the lower radiator hose near the engine block (reachable from the serpentine belt area of the engine.

~squeezing the hose produces a small pressure wave that forces fluid out and lets a little air in. making the draining process go a little faster.

the inlet hose should be the lower hose...

the radiator should have 4 other smaller hoses these are for engine oil and Transmission Fluid.

i always take mine to the dealer and let him/her to take care of it i trust the dealer to do a good job on my van

Why the steam inlet at the top and coolant circulation from bottom of the reactor why we can't use the glass lined reactors for alkali reactions?

In the PWR the top houses the steam outlet, not inlet, and coolant flow is applied to the pressure vessel inlet connections. A glass lined vessel would simply not be durable enough for a 40 or hopefully 60 year life. If it started cracking or peeling off, how would it be repaired?

Why does my truck heat turn cold unless its sitting still my coolant is full new thermostat and system has been flushed?

Try backflushing the heater core. You have two heater hoses going into the firewall - after running, one should be hot to the touch, and one should not. The one that's hot to the touch will be the inlet... when you backflush it, you'll use it as the outlet. Disconnect the heater hoses, keep the ends elevated, put in some radiator flush or CLR, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then, using the outlet hose as the inlet and vice versa, you can either flush it out with pressurized air or pressurized water.

The thermostat is located on the side of the cylinder head, just above where the block mates with the head. There is a coolant inlet fitting (the thermostat cover) which should have a hose connected to it. If you can find that coolant inlet cover, the thermostat is located inside/under that cover. There should be two bolts holding that cover on.

Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses going to the heater core at the firewall.

Do not use too much pressure or you will cause a leak in the core.
