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!
