Where is the radiator cap and drain plug on a 1999 Ford Contour?
in the engien
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…
being a technician, i have never located one! we hook a machine up to the upper radiator hose or you can disconnect the heater hose located under the car on the passenger side, but that's quite a mess. well u have to take the lower radiator shield off, the drain can be taken out with a flat head screw driver the plug is right below the lower radiator hose
Does the cooling system of a 25 ford Contour need to be bleed after changing the fluid and how is this done?
take off the plastic covers under the front of the engine. then you will see a small hose on the passnger side of the car that runs down from the lower radiator hose around the passenger side of the engine. simply use pliars to loosen the clamp and pull off that hose. make sur to have a bucket there, and the fluid won't drain good until you remove the radiator cap under the hood.
