How do you install a radiator in a 1998 ford contour?"
There is no drain.
by Tigercadd:The drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator, passenger side facing the engine compartment. Im not a Big mechanic or anything but i know a few basics, not every car has a drain plug for the radiator, if it does, it will be on the bottom of the rad. if it doesnt a simple way to drain the coolant would be to disconect the bottom rad hose and let the coolant drain through thatI have looked at the manual and from what I can remember, on the Ford Contour, you have to remove the plastic splashboard underneath the front part of the car before you can see the radiator drain plug on a 1998 Ford Contour. I have not actually changed the radiator fluid on my Contour but I know you will have to remove the bolts that hold the splashboard on and remove the splashboard before you can see the radiator drainplug.

Either at the bottom or the rear lower section of radiator
you can either pull the hose for it or you can usually just open the drain plug on the radiator
take the lower radiator shield off under the passenger side below the lower radiator hose should be where the plug is and u can take it out with a flat head screw driver
Look for a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
