Customer Question

Trying to change coolant on a 2004 range rover. I opened the drain plug on the radiator but only drops of coolant came out. Someone said there is a drain port on the plug that has to opened and a tube to be inserted to drain coolant. How do you do this? Also need assistance is removing the block drain plug. Can't find it still even with the diagram.

Why are you draining the block there is no need to drain the block. Also is the cap off the radiator and overflow when trying to change the coolant?

Someone else said that you can drain more of the old coolant out by the block drain plug. Not all of it comes out through the radiator drain. Yes cap is off the expansion tank. There is no radiator cap on the radiator itself on a 2004 range rover.

Yes but there's no reason to drain the block this only done if there is contaminated fluid or oil mixed with the coolant.Best and easiest way to drain the system is take a drain pan and remove the lower radiator hose make sure the vehicle is not hot. Reattach the radiator hose install the new coolant and bleed the system and you will be fine . Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
