Hi! I don't see the radiator drain plug on my 98 V6 SOHC. Do I need to
remove the black plastic shroud that covers the bottom of the radiator to
get to it? The lower radiator hose looks accessible--can I use that to
drain the radiator instead. Appreciate any advice.

Ken

You got it! Just remove the 4 bolts that hold the black plastic shroud in
place and pull straight down. There are 2 push clips, one on each side that
keep the shroud in place after you remove the bolts. I recommend flushing
the heater core while your at it.
