It seems it is on the back of the engine (facing the car from front),
near the exhaust manifold. But it is so rusted (heat + water) that I
finally broke that bolt -:(

ouch, thats a bummer. sorry to hear it. just open the drain plug on the radiator and drain all the fluid then hook a garden hose up to the radiator and keep it pumping water through till it comes out all water (with the car running) then start to drain the water and add non diluted coolant. Or if your a mineral deposits is going to kill your whatever freak go to wal-mart and buy distilled water, around 5 gallons. and do that.

So what were you trying to do to begin with? Was it leaking or was something wrong with it? Did the bolt break off inside of the engine? If you weren't trying to change the plug before, you for sure should change it now.

I was trying to change the coolant, so I poked around to find a
way to get rid of the coolant inside the engine block. Now it is
stuck, I have to do what ghost_rider suggested..
The top of the bolt came off, but thanks god the coolant is not leaking.

You better keep on praying that it doesn't start leaking. When that plug loosens up because that bolt is no longer keeping tension on it, you are gonna have a mess. I suggest you fix it real soon. :bash: Good Luck BTW that would be thank GOD.
