Hey, i just flushed out my coolant system a month ago. it is located (if you face the front of the car) on the bottom right. it will drain straight down to the ground and you have to unscrew it from the back of the radiator. it is covered by a pastic piece and sits right on the radiator frame. hope that helps some!!

Some vehicles don't have one so you will need to draw the coolant out through the radiator or remove the lower hose to drain it.

Trying to drain my radiator but i cant find the knob to do's a 2003 chevy impala.

An easier way to do it would just be to remove the bottom hose running from the engine to the radiator where it connects to the radiator, it drains faster (but is a little messier) but still effective. Hope this helps!

How do you drain the coolant system on 2003 Impala 3.4 ?

The drain **** is on the lower right "backside" of the radiator. You can't get to this or the lower hose without removing the plastic shroud under the radiator. This has 5 bolts holding this on. Then reach around the back of the radiator and you will feel a wingnut. You can loosen the drain knob with pliers, but a small crescent wrench on bolt attached to wingnut will prevent any stripping. The knob will only need a turn or less to loosen,,,,then you can use your fingers to adjust flow.
