FYI there is a lower drain cock on this car. I had to remove 10 little
screws on the bottom of the plastic radiator shrowed below the car up
front. It's this plastic shield thingy used for directing the airflow.
Ford purposely used a rare size screw that is impossible to find in
the typical tool box in order to make this job hard for the do it
yourselfer. And there are 3 larger screws holding this plastic shield
The drain cock is on the very bottom drivers side corner of the
radiator itself. It does not come completely out. What you have to do
is unscrew it just enough so that the coolant will drain out a seperate
hole just off to the side of the drain cock.
Please DO NOT DUMP USED RADIATOR FLUID INTO THE STORM DRAIN! It ends
up into the ocean, rivers, and lakes and it contaminates the
environment. It is toxic, it kills all the marine life. The used
fluid needs to be carefully bottled and sent to the proper city
I chose the green fluid by "PEAK" that makes it less toxic than the
conventional coolant/anti-freeze. Its the one in the Green containers,
not the blue ones. Safe for aluminum engines and water pumps.
