You are watching: Dodge ram 1500 radiator drain plug
The owners manual does not suggest where the drain plug is located on the 2013 Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi. Can someone suggest me in the ideal direction? Also, is there a appropriate procedure for getting the air out of the cooling system? I am offered to the old school way of leaving the radiator cap off, turning the heat/defrost on high and watching the air bubbles make their means out of the device. Thoughts?dh
I have a 2014 5.7 and also it is situated on the reduced driver side edge of the radiator. I cut a item of hose (3/8" I think) and also slid it over the drain so I can overview the anti-freeze into a container. If this doesn"t help you must have the ability to look it up on youtube.

Thanks for the help. How did you go about rerelocating any air in the device after you included the brand-new coolant?dh
The old fashion means. I filled it till it would not take any more then began the engine. With the radiator cap off you can watch the air occupational it"s way out. Make certain you let the t-stat open up because you will certainly must add even more at this point. I let my truck idle till it wouldn"t take anymore and also tright here were no even more air bubbles, about 15 minutes. If your temp gauge fluctuates a lot you probably did not acquire it complete. Keep an eye on your gauge and inspect the level a couple times over the next few days and you"ll be fine.
