What is the best way to drain the coolant from the block? A Honda technician advised to not remove block drain plug located on engine block rear side near oil filter. Is there more than one drain plug? Supposedly the threads in the block can become damaged cosequently rendering the engine unusable and not repairable. Is there any other way to drain the block such as a frost plug that is user friendly?
