The radiator has a hard to see drain plug on the left drivers' side. There are 5 10MM screws holding the air deflector on. The block has removable plugs, one 14MM hex next to the oil filter and one in about the same location on the other side of the block toward the firewall under the exhaust manifold.

You need only to drain off a couple quarts of coolant to change the thermostat.

Remove the drain plug from the bottom of your 2002 Chevy Camaro radiator. Allow the coolant to drain out into a container. When all the coolant is drained out replace the drain plug to its original position. Fill the radiator with new coolant.

Just beneath the lower radiator hose is the drain.

Place something to catch the engine coolant beneath your 1990 Chevy Corsica radiator. Remove the radiator drain plug with a 9/16 ratchet. The engine coolant will drain out.

There is a drain on the lower right of the rad. If you can't get to it, pull the lower hose.

It does not have one. You will have to remove the transmission fluid pan to drain the transmission.

The bottom inside corner of the radiator.

== == It is located at the lowest level of the radiator, and it looks like a miniature water tap. Be careful not to try to drain it when the coolant is very hot, you could get burned. You will need a very large container to hold the coolant, at least 6 gallons in size.

Disconnect the lower coolant hose.

Look at the rear or bottom of the radiator

On the bottom of the oil pan, look for the large bolt.

If the drain plug is leaking its the rubber bushing around it probaly and they are only three dollars for a new one. You should change your oil when you relace it.

there are no drain plugs on gas tanks, you will have to siphon the gas out or take the tank down to get the gas out.

The engine block coolant drain plug on 4.3 liter Chevy Blazer is located on the bottom of the engine, near the oil filter. It allows coolant to be completely drained from the block during maintenance.

There is a plastic drain valve on one of the bottom corner's of the radiator (facing engine) open valve and properly catch & dispose of coolant that comes out. You may need to use pliers to loosen drain valve. Tighten by hand.

Drain the oil from your 2000 Chevy Impala oil pan. Remove the oil pan retaining bolts. Remove the old oil pan gasket and clean the surface. Put the new oil pan gasket on and reverse the process.

The only way to drain all the coolant is to unhook the bottom radiator hose. The radiator does NOT have a drain vale.

Drain the coolant, unclamp the old hose, remove the old hose, install the new hose, clamp the new hose in, fill up the coolant.

I am trying to drain old antifreeze and replace with new and cannot figure out how to remove the radiator plug on my 2001 Chevy impala 3400V6 engine?

Coolant drain plug is on the bottom of the radiator. You turn the knob and watch out. You need a wide drain pan not an oil change pan.
