Is there an engine block coolant drain plug on a 2006 Chevrolet Express 3500 6.0 L V8?
There are block coolant drains on both sides of the block. Drivers side block drain is towards the front and the passenger side is towards the rear. They take a large allen wrench to unscrew.
Coolant enters the water pump from the lower radiator hose. The water pump pumps coolant into both sides of the engine block towards the rear of the block. Coolant then flows up into the cylinder heads and flows toward the front of the heads before crossing over into the intake manifold and up to the thermostat. Coolant then flows through the thermostat into the upper radiator hose back into the radiator.
yes in a way. block heaters heat the coolant in the block there for warming the block up. coolant heaters heat the coolant out side the engine like in the hoses and radiater. and when the coolant gets hot enough it opens the thermosate and starts flowing through the engine..The coolant heater should be hooked into the engine so that it heats only the engine and the heater core. If the coolant heater is trying…
Kind of. There are water jackets inside the engine block and usually the heads of a liquid-cooled engine Water (or coolant) will either flow from the block to the head to the radiator, or from the radiator through the head to the block (a reverse flow design). The latter is better because it cools the heads first and helps prevent detonation. It also reduces thermal shock to the engine block.
I need to drain the engine coolant from the engine block on a 1997 transport. Where is the engine drain plug located?
Take it to dealer and hope they do it correctly, There is a plug on bottom of radiator loosen and it drains coolant out of radiator, but not out of engine, There are plugs on the side of the engine block that have to be removed to drain coolant out of block. Probably impossible to get to and accidents happen, sorry I hope this helps some.
There is oil in my radiator in my 02 Chevrolet Monte Carlo but it doesn't overheat What wrong with it?
Check to see if there is coolant on the engine block. It is common for the Monte Carlos, along with other GM cars equipped with the 3400 V6 engine to experience leaking intake manifold gaskets. A leaking intake manifold will cause oil to leak into the coolant system and even worse, for coolant to leak into the oil system.
