Should be on the bottom of the radiator. If you see none, then just remove the lower radiator hose.


The drain petcock should be on bottom, drivers-side of the radiator. It'll take a while to drain it through the petcock. Be sure to open the radiator cap to allow air into the system to help it go faster.

Although it's likely to be messy as heck, I usually take a large drainpan and pop the lower radiator hose off.

Please keep in mind, most if not all radiator petcocks are a left hand thread
there is a drain on lower left side of radiator. unscrew and drain.
