I am looking for a pic of the location of the radiator petcock in my 94 5.0L. the couple photos I have found on the internet/in my manual are either so over/underexposed that they're useless, or are too zoomed in to locate the petcock with relation to what's near it. I had been just pulling off the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant but I think I'm ready to stop doing things the ghetto way lol anyone help me out?
im no photographer but... i just ran out and took a couple pics of mine (also a 94). its on the passenger side tank. its on the back side a couple inches from the bottom. wait.. a couple inches from the bottom, whos idea was that? anyway, heres pics, hope it helps.
it looks like a plastic wing nut. the tank is molded so it kinda hangs off the side. another way to drain it would be pulling the lower radiator hose off. WARNING: messy! i dont start my new job for a couple weeks so youre welcome to make a trip to columbus and i'll help you drain it.
what I really need to do is take a garden hose and run it into the radiator then run the engine with the petcock open until it comes out clear I was having trouble getting all the crap out of the coolant. I might wait until the spring, it's a little cold to be putting water in the radiator these days
