its still going to pour out when you pull the freeze plug but it wont be as much as if you dont drain any.

i always just pull the lower radiator hose but everyone has their own way of doing it

ok so i did the freeze plug yesterday and everything seemed fine. i got in it this morning and started driving...leaks more now the b4. the freeze plug i used was the rubber one and it didnt leak after the install. could it be that i didnt tighten the nut enough? or should i just redo it with the solid plug?
