Which way do you turn a radiator Petcock?
In this way, which way do you turn a radiator drain plug?
Using your screwdriver, turn the drain plug in the counterclockwise direction until it comes loose. Let the radiator fluid empty into the bucket.
Secondly, how do I empty my radiator? To flush a radiator, start by draining all of the old antifreeze in the radiator into a drainage pan. Then, seal the drain valve and pour a full bottle of radiator cleaner and 1 gallon of distilled water into the radiator reservoir. Next, turn your vehicle on with the heat on full blast for 5 minutes.
Similarly, you may ask, where is the Petcock on my radiator?
A radiator drain petcock is usually located above the bottom of the radiator. So even if you can open it, you're not draining the radiator completely. That's why shops always remove the lower radiator hose. That drains the entire radiator AND most of the coolant from the engine.
How do you drain coolant from engine block?
The basic steps to flush a car engine block are:
- Remove the lower radiator hose and catch the draining coolant in a bucket.
- Remove the top radiator hose and flush the system out with a normal hose.
- Continue until the water runs clear out of the bottom of the engine.
- Refill with coolant and reattach the radiator hoses.
