  • Coolant drains

    The radiator one is obvious.
    But I cannot find the 2 that the manual refers to on the engine block in order to change the coolant.

    Thanks in advance.

    NM but with tricky electrical setups of course.
    And that's the wank wank wank and more wank factor out of the way.

      Have you looked in the service manual?

        Yes, where I said:
        'the 2 that the manual refers to on the engine block'

        It gives no indication of where they are apart from 'on V6 engines there are 2 plugs, located on each side of the block' (Haynes Repair Manual Pajero 97-05 pg 1-33 37/5).

        And yes, I have done a search of the forum.

        Many thx in advance,
        John

              Drain Plugs in block

              Hi There - Just picked up this thread as I am changing my coolant - can you give me a starting point of where to look (ie from above or beneath) I can't match the picture as posted to my car

              Thanks

                That pic is for the overseas double cam motor - I've tried and failed using it to find the plugs on the Aussie spec single cam motor. If anyone's found them, some descriptive orientation would sure help!

                2010 MY 2011 VR-X V6. Stock standard.

                Previously 02 NM auto V6 Exceed silver. Extra transmission cooler & transmission temp gauge, activated rear lights, Impco sequential LPG system, Redback (Wildcat) Headers, heavy duty radiator. Lovells shocks F & R, Polyair bags in rear.

                My original Pajero experience - '90 NG Superwagon, 3.0 V6 manual bought new and kept until 1998. Great vehicle, no problems apart from the noisy valve lifters typical of that engine.

                  I have a 93 NJ 2.8 TD and have spent hours looking for the block drain plug to no avail. Anybody help?

                    hi if you have a 4m4 motor the drain plug for coolant is right near the oil filter
                    on the 6g7 mpi on the left bank it is next to the engine mount right bank not sure they are
                    small bolts
                    the 6g7 gdi left bank just beside the heat shield to the front
                    when you find one it will be easy to spot next time on the right bank it is a small bolt just
                    looking like it is all by it's self
                    hope some of this helps
                    cheers liam

                      Thanks - got it now - its the 4M40 and its right where you said it would be - behind the oil filter.

                      The old Haynes Manual didn't even give a hint where it might be - other than on the side of the block. As its pointing down I would have described that bolt as being on the under side.
