I think you may have a hex head plug in the bottom of the radiator, although they do not now offer this option for draining... If so, get a long 1/2 or 3/8 extension with a 14 or 15 metric socket and loosen it after removing the fill cap. Make sure it has cooled down... else, you will have to loosen the lower water line from the radiator to drain... you should do this again wiht water into to get the best results... remember the water will not enter the block fully until the thermostat is open ie you must refill and check several times when refilling... put you new antifreeze in first then finish with water.. or you may mix small amounts ie, 1/2 gall at a time to get a 50/50 mix. good luck

Have a 99 suburban its been sitting for a year and had no problems but now the engine is missing changed plugs cap and rotor but same exact problem

If it's been sitting for a year with the same fuel, drop the tank and flush it and the fuel lines completely. Also take out the fuel pump and replace the fuel pump screen and don't forget to replace the fuel filter as well. Fuel WILL go bad sitting for that long.

When changing A/C compressor on 99' chevy suburban 1500 what all needs to be changed or done besides the flush, vacuum and freon.

there is either an orifice tube or a expansion valve. both do the same job. however, the orifice tube should be replaced. it will filter small particles from the system and gets clogged. i would also replace the accumulater or receiver/dryer and condensor. if your compressor went bad chances are there is a lot of debris in the system. flushing doesn't always remove the debris. there is much more info on the internet regarding this subject. as well as videos on you tube
