The radiator drain is located under the radiator (you may have to raise your vehicle to spot it beyond the shield). (1)Remove radiator cap and attach a 3/8" diameter hose to the drain fitting to direct the coolant into a container and then open the drain fitting with a pair of pliers. (2)Flush radiator with fresh water from a garden hose until water runs clear through the plug. (3)Refill with 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. Piece of cake, huh!! The hardest part is locating the drain fitting which appears to be well hidden, but I think it is on the driver's side of the radiator. Good luck. By the way, intructions are from Haynes Repair Manual Ford Ranger 1993 - 2005.
