One drain plug located in the center (bottom) of the radiator. It's not easy to get to but it can be done. If you cant get it just take off the bottom hose on the passenger side of the radiator.

Get a Hanes or Chilton repair manual, it will say. The capacity really isn't critical unless you are doing a complete teardown and completely draining the system.

How long will a car last if the head gasket is blown?

Every time you start the engine you are doing damage. The coolant will mix with the oil and coolant is a horrible lubricant. How long you should drive it is none at all. Do not run this engine with a blown head gasket or you will be paying for a complete overhaul or buying another engine.

What is the funsion of coolant sensor of a Toyota 4 Runner 1992?

The coolant temperature sensor, which is located behind the engine block near the firewall, senses when the coolant temperature reaches a predetermined temperature so that the transmission can shift into overdrive. This sensor and the hose preceding it can get gunked up with cystallization from the coolant (red Toyota coolant is notorious for doing this) and can prevent proper flow to the sensor i.e. your transmission may take longer to shift into overdrive or may not shift at all depending on how constricted the hose is.

Where is the choke located on 1998 Ford Windstar?

There is NOT a choke on any fuel injected engine. The coolant temperature sensor does the job of what used to be the choke. When the coolant in the engine is cold, the coolant temperature sensor tells the engine control module and it determines how rich or lean to make the engine run. You can use a scanner to see if it and all the other sensors are doing the job they are meant to perform.

What would cause no circulation in radiator?

If the temp gauge reads normal and the engine is not overheating, the thermostat is doing its job. The thermostat maintains the coolant temp by opening and closing allowing the coolant to flow or not to flow. When it is closed the coolant doesn't circulate.

What is the coolant capacity for a 97 corolla?

Unless you are doing a complete rebuild of the engine this a very relative question. When you flush your system coolant remains in the engine, water pump, and hosing making it near impossible to give an exact measurement. However, from my experience with these models, you wont need more than a gallon of coolant to refill it. It may take a few days/drives before all of the air pockets are out, so just check it a few times.

How do you change the knock sensors on a 2001 Nissan Xterra.?

newer cars do have knock sensors.. I have a 2001 xterra with the 3.3L v6 and the knock sensor is located underneath the intake manifold.. you might want to get a good repair manual or copy some pages out of one at the local library to help you figure out how to do it yourself if you plan on doing it. I'm about to change mine this weekend after i get some money together for the sensor and new intake gaskets.. this thing is making me go broke!

How do you change the coolant in a 2000 Nissan Xterra?

After radiator has cooled down remove radiator cap. In the center underside of the radiator is a drain plug unscrew it and drain until all coolant is empty. You will have to locate the bleeder screw in the head in order to drain the fluid in the head and not just the fluid in the radiator and lines. The screw is near your throttle body on the head of the engine (top and center). It is hard to explain where without pictures, but I suggest getting a simple Haynes or Chilton's manual. For simple things like changing coolant they really help and the money you save by doing this yourself once will pay the manual off.

What could be the problem if the coolant light does not go off even when coolant is added on a 1994 Saturn?

You have an air bubble. The coolant level sensor is high in the block and you need to bleed the suystem of air in order to turn the light off. Not doing so will create hot spots in the engine block and eventual failure.
