There is a drain in the side of the block normall near the back on the side. Sometime it is a tap that you screw in not out to open it. It is possible to flush without removing the plug but if you want a good job take the time to remove the thermostat and flush using the bottom radiator hose and not through the radiator as you won't want any muck blocking up the cores in the radiator. Then flush the radiator from bottom to top.
If you mean the drain plug for the motor crankcase, you might stick a screwdriver or wire or something like that in and our of the hole until the motor oil runs out. If the transmission drain plug, same answer. If the radiatror drain plug, try taking the radiator cap off and blow air into the drain with an air hose gently to open it. (NOT high pressure so you don't damage the radiator). Be Blessed.
There is usually a petcock or maybe just a plug at the bottom left or right. Some cars have no plug at all. In these cases, the manual says to just remove the lower radiator hose. In any case, be careful if the coolant is hot. OK?
Drain plug is located on the driver's side of the radiator, It's common got the drain plug's O rings to go bad and promote leaking after it's been removed due to time and heat.
Your better off by doing what most Techs do by unhooking the lower radiator hose from the passenger side to ensure no additional work is needed to flush out the coolant from the radiator.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.
you need to flush the radiator out.
With the engine cold, remove coolant bottle cap to release pressure.
Drain engine coolant from drain plug on radiator.
With the drain plug removed disconnect the highest hose connected to a radiator.
use an hosepipe and put it in place of the disconnected radiator pipe.
turn on the water to the hose pipe and let it flush out any sludge accumulated in the radiator. after a few minutes turn off water supply, reconnect radiator hose and drain plug and refil using recommended coolant mix for your galaxy (purchased at most autofactors and garages).
Also check your thermostat as if this is faulty it would stop the flow of coolant running around your engine.
The drain plug should be located on the drivers side on bottom of radiator. Should be a flat tab that you can use to unscrew it. Or the faster/messier way of doing it, is to pull of lower radiator hose. Alot faster but alot harder to catch coolant to reuse.
