Coolant drain?'s on 2.5 turbo

Since the hot summer days this year my 92' 2.5 turbo 124 has been running between 90c and 105c. The coolant is due for a change so I will do that and test the t-stat too. A few questions:

Is there a block coolant drain on a 92' 2.5 turbo...where?
Any advice on making sure all air is out of the system?
What is the best flush/fulid to use?

Thanks for any input.

Look under the exhaust manifold on the passenger side of the engine, I believe there is a block drain plug there, correct me if I am wrong.

Ali,

Thanks for the pointer. I found the drain plug but did not have the strength/tool to perform the task. Drain and flush went well. But did not solve the over heating problem. Although, I found only one aux. fan to be working when the defrost is on. Should both? If so what could be the problem.

Yes, that bolt can get pretty stuck sometimes. I have to use a breaker bar to get it off sometimes.

Both fans should be running together. One cause is a bad fan; can't help you further than to let you know something's awry...good luck with it
