SOURCE: i have rust on bottom of my radiator cap

It is more likley that is not rust. The coolant GM uses is called Dexcool, Dexcool has had a reputation of causing a sludge that appears to be rust in the cooling system. I could get into the chemical break down, but there isn't enough room to explain. The main cause to this, is lack of maint. over time the coolant will build a charge of electricity called electrolisys, this is what causes what you are more than likely seeing. The correct way to eliminate this (if it isn't too bad) is to go to your local repair shop, and ask if they offer the BG cooling system flush w/ additive. If they do, go ahead and have them do it. If it is pretty bad have repeated after about 6000 miles. You may also find more info on the dexcool and its effects here

SOURCE: where is the radiator drain plug located on a 97

It's located on the drivers side of the radiator opposite of the lower radiator hose. Note: you may be better off disconnecting the lower radiator hose, it's common for the drain plug to break or the O-rings to split causing more work to drain the radiator. That's why most tech's will drain the radiator from the lower radiator hose, less chance of breaking the radiator drain plug and most new cars now don't come with a drain plug to the radiator.

You did a good job covering it all. The only next possibility is the gauge itself and/or or wiring going to or from it.

How do i change the radiator fluid?

Most radiators have a drain plug on the bottom tank the engine block also has a drain plug . Remove the radiator cap ,open both drains ,let all the coolant run out, if there is no radiator plug remove the lower hose , remove the heater demister hoses, with the heater control on hot flush out all the coolant from the heater radiator. with a garden hose, till the water runs clean, tighten the radiator plug or re fit the hose,put a garden hose into the radiator and flush out till the water at the block plug runs clean ,refit the heater hoses, refit the block plug, fill the radiator from the hose leave the cap off , If it has a overflow tank clean and flush it. start and run engine for 5 minutes top up radiator if needed . stop engine and drain out all water. most important that all old coolant is drained out, only buy the best coolant you can . If you make up your own use only distilled water. keep some to top up with never mix with another brand. Fill radiator with coolant top up over flow tank, run engine top up coolant as needed, refit radiator cap run for another 10 minutes check for leaks,

The coolant light is on in my 95 camaro. History: .July 2006 i flushed out the rad and then took it off the road aug 2006....due to financial constraints, not mechanical issues........Its in great...

Hello: If the light is for low coolant level and the radiator/overflow tank are full it will not hurt to drive it. The thermostat has nothing to do with the coolant level switch. The level switch will be in either the overflow tank or the radiator tank.

My 1999 Chevy 1500 pickup has transmission fluid in the radiator. Can this be fixed?

It would cost as much to repair the leak that is internal on the tank then to buy a new radiator or buy a used radiator at a salvage yard. Make sure you flush the system after you change repair or change the radiator to get all the oil out of the system. The parts store has a flush for cleaning out the system.
