Need location of radiator plug on 2004 chevy venture

If it has one it would be on the bottom of the radiator. Most cars and trucks today don't have a plug or valve.
You are expected to use a recycling machine to flush the coolant.

Where is the engine coolant drain plug located on a 1994 ford thunderbird?

The radiator does, however, have a pet-**** or drain plug on the left side of the radiator. It is here where you can drain the radiator and engine. Keep in mind that all the water will not be removed because by nature of the block's position in the compartment, unless you use a flushing tee, you won't be able to remove all the anti-freeze. ---------------- It's called a drain **** and it's straight down behind and under the radiator on the left side way down there. Even though it's way down there it's still easier than getting to it from the bottom. It's not a typical screw type device though. It has a notch (metal tip coming out of one side of it and no threads. Just turn 3/4 turn and pull straight out. thanks

Want to change out coolent in radiator myself is it a wise choice

Things you will need:
Radiator coolant mixture (get from garage)
Radiator flush fluid (also from garage)
Distilled water (Or if your me garden hose water ;) )

Take off the radiator cap when engine is COOL. Find the drain plug located in the bottom of the radiator (normaly hand tight) and let it drain out into a catch container. Put the drain plug back in, follow the instructions on the flush container topping the radiator back up. Let engine run as directed on bottle and then carefuly undo the radiator cap using a rag as not to burn yourself. Then remove the plug again and drain out the flush fluid. Then repeat the process with the radiator fluid as instructed on the bottle.

Radiator Flush Plug

look under the left end of the radiator, at the bottom. Under the "bumper", a small white plastic's a valve of sorts to drain the radiator.
