96 cherokee sport

Hay guys

So i own a 96 cherokee sport my 1st jeep evere and wow what a beast it is i love it the shape the performance its perfect!

So i havent had much problems with it other then a split lower radiator hose that i had to rrplace but now i notice it needs a good flush but cant find the drain tap Can anyone help?? And would it be easyer and cheaper in the long run just to replace the radiator. By the way my xj is right hand drive as im from nz

I highly suggest you drop the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant. The petcock to drain from the radiator on the XJs is woefully under-designed and has a history of breaking. I won't use them.

Just be careful when you drop the hose as it will come out swiftly. Wear eye protection and have a big drain pan!
