That is the petcock, all it takes is a 1/4 turn to open to drain the radiator (have the radiator cap off).

Best Answer

I have the cap off the resevore there isn't one on the radiator. (never seen one like that) and nothing happened. Where exactly does the anti freeze drain. Think it's clogged


Or did you mean 1/4 turn and pull the plug out


Yes, pull it after turning it, "lefty loosey" as they say - may actually take more than 1/4 turn, just turn it until it stops. Should pop out after turning it. Just in case it should break as they're known to do, you may want to buy a spare one first from parts store, they're cheap.


after all that all I got was a slow drip. do you think a radiator flush will resolve this. I have limited resourses, that's why im under the hood. Thanks for the help
