Coolant drainplug washer size
« on: May 15, 2019, 11:19:52 PM »
Heeyoo

Does anyone know the measurements for the copperwasher on the coolant drainplug ? I've looked on this forum (not extensively, I admit) and on exploded diagrams but I can't seem to find the specs for this anywhere

I noticed last year when changing coolant that the washer is due for replacing so does anyone know what size I should go for ?

Have a look at an online parts list. Dimensions of most nuts, bolts, washers etc. are shown:

unfortunately, no dimensions for the washer I need, not even an article number for it, but it's ok, I'll take the plug to a shop here that sells bolts, washers everything and figure it out from there

I’m currently doing some work on my mate’s Explorer including flushing the coolant. Most sources say that coolant swapping is main dealer only. The most I’ve managed to find out after two hours research is the lowest drain bolt is on the left hand side but I can’t seen anything resembling a drain bolt with a copper washer.

Checked the parts list above. 👍🏻

Anybody point me in the right direction?

The engine block coolant drain is located on the left front corner of the cylinder block, above the radiator bracket and below the exhaust header pipe.

Wicked. Thanks. I was looking lower. Don’t know why when I think about it. 👍🏻
