    Hello Fellow ST’ers

    I have a 2004 Sport Trac and Im going to be flushing the radiator soon, is there a petcock on it or just remove the bottom hose?

    Thanks,
    MoSsMaN

    Bottom hose is way faster and easier..... there is a drain but its like a 1/4 hole.

    ^ Agree. And really the BEST way to remove most of the contaminants. Just be prepared for the flood. If you insist on using the nylon petcock, best to use a 5/16" allen hex socket. Just a heads up, NAPA has Zerex G-05 on sale thru April 30. Order on line, pick up in store.
