:waving: I am trying to drain and flush my radiator today. I have already drained the radiator and can't find the drain plug on the block. My Haynes manual uses a 1994 Sentra and shows the plug right by the upper hose, but it isn't there on my 1987 ( :wtf: ). It's a 1.6L and I need help now because I've already drained the radiator

there aint such thing as a drain plug on the E16. if you want to flush it i suggest you hook a hose to one side of the engine and recuperate the water on the other side. most of the water came out as you emptied the radiator.

Go to you local auto parts store and get one of those flush kits. Only like ten bucks and it comes with cleaner. You simply install a T-fitting on your upper(?) heater hose. There you connect a garden hose and run the engine for a few minutes til your thermostat pops and all the coolant in the block is flushed out. Read the directions on the box. Easy stuff.
