    Comments about Dorman - Help Radiator Drain Cocks:

    Even though the Advance Auto website says this part doesn't fit my car, I can tell you it is a perfect fit for a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme SL 2 Door with 3.1L. The old part's wing was buggered up so much I couldn't hardly get it open and was afraid once I did I couldn't get it closed again. Bought this part in store and waited until I needed to drain antifreeze again. This Dorman part fit perfectly. Very pleased. To remove the old one, turn left 90 degrees and pull straight out, new one pushes in and you turn right. Pin will be straight up.

      GM should've made the original plug like this one instead of having a plastic tab. This one has a metal tab, and I'm sure it'll last much longer.

Found the drain plug housing on the lower passange side of the radiator, and this product looks like it will fit, but there is no existing drain plug. Do I need to somehow perice a hole in the pecock housing ???

                I'm glad to assist, Dave! I did some research on the 2004 GMC Sonoma 4WD 4.3L V6 Crew Cab and found that what you are looking at should be the petcock. You are not required to pierce a hole through this, it can be unscrewed. This should use a No. 4 hex key (Allen wrench) (metric). Make sure that you are careful when removing to avoid stripping the plastic.

                A helpful tip I picked up is to move the rubber splash guard hanging over the plastic wheel well to help you see clearly what you are working on. When reinstalling the petcock, a large coin such as a $1 coin may ease the process and help prevent stripping of the hex head.

                With reference to your Dorman - Help Radiator Drain Cocks - GM 2005-92 - Part No. 61133 for 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a threaded type. To replace the radiator drain plug, just loosen 1/4 turn using a 1/4” square drive extension in counter clockwise. The new one just pushes in until the o-ring is free and then you turn 1/4 turn clockwise by hand to close.

                A:

                The radiator drain plug on your 1995 Grand Prix should be located at the bottom drivers side of the radiator. If you turn this, coolant will drain out. If you have skinny arms you may be able to reach down behind the fan to the knob, otherwise you will have to remove the flashing underneath, 5 bolts total. use a 1/4 inch Allen wrench in the center of the knob to loosen it.
