2001 7.3 Powerstroke diesel (block drain plug)

Hey Peeps .

I want to drain my coolant fully,and do a complete flush and coolant change on my 2001 F250 with Powerstroke diesel.

To get the cleanest and most complete draining of the system,I'd like to drain the block,after draining the system at the radiator and hoses.

From the picture provided,can you tell me which of these two drain plugs is for the coolant?



Thanks in advance !

Rick

The bottom one is a return to the oil pan, so not that one

Here is the one on the drivers side. There is also one above the starter on passanger side. Make sure you disconnect the batteries or you might get some fireworks. Don't ask me how I know....lol..

Why wouldn't you just put a T in the heater core line and flush it with the garden hose. the thermostat isn't going to stop the block antifreeze from coming out. It'll come out. Quick too
