    Looking at the manual looks like it's on the front side in the middle of the block.

    Do you really need to empty the block?

    Depending on how you do your flush.... I personally wouldn't leave the block 'dry' (so to speak).

    You can leave it in there and flush it out with water.

    so i would have to remove that plastic cover on the front of the engine and it should be somewhere near the middle? and when you flush it after its flushed you flush it with water and when does the heat get involved i read something about using it
