Default Where is the Engine Block Drain Plug?


I'm trying to locate the Engine Block Drain Plug? According to my HAYNES manual, there are 2 coolant drain plugs found in the engine block. I looked and I could not find them....[:@]

I'm trying to fully flush out my coolant, so any help would be GREAT.

NOTE: I'm not talking about the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator on the passenger side. I already drained that one.

Have a good day...

You don't need to pull the freeze plugs. Just fill it up with straight water and drain it 2 or 3 times.

Thats what I am going to end up doing if nobody knows where those stupid plugs are. If I can drain from the block, I would save quite a bit of time.

Anyone....anyone?

I'm convinced they don't exist....I can't find ANY info on them.

It's not that they don't 'exist' it's probably that they're just regular Freeze Plugs that can be removed to make it easier to drain the engine. Anytime you remove a freeze plug, you run the risk of accidentaly knocking it INTO the block...then you are scr3w3d.
