Hi there!

If you want to drain you radiator, just use the drain plug located just below the radiator. But in order to do it,you must at least turn off your engine for 30 minutes so that the coolant/water of the radiator wont be too hot.

hope I helped you! :)

just asking, did you replaced the old coolant with the same brand or other? this may cause your engine to adjust to match the running temperature and therefore, spill put some coolant if necessary.

regards! :)

Hi You may need to check your radiator hoses for swelling.
Can cause this type of fault mentioned.
Best to replace hoses if that is the case.
