The radiator is in the front of the car under the hood behind the grille. It will be rectangular shaped and have a fan set to blow against it. It will have a cap on the top. DO NOT REMOVE THE CAP WHILE THE ENGINE IS HOT. Beside the radiator is another rectangular shaped item that looks like the radiator but is the condensor for the air conditioner. It does not have a cap on top and is in front of the radiator.
The drain for the radiator is on the lower part. After draining be sure to close the drain before refilling.
Refill the overflow bottle as well.
AFTER you refill, let the engine run for about a minute while topping off the radiator so any air will work out of the system.
Then install and tighten radiator cap.
When you drain the radiator, dispose of the fluid according to local regulations or recycling center. Do not allow animals to drink any of it. It's poisonous.
You can get an auto repair manual from library, auto parts stores or the internet.

Be advised antifreeze has a sweet taste. Dog.cats and other animals will drink it AND DIE. Don't leave it in an open container!

Under the front of the car you will find a black plastic pan covering the engine. On the drivers side there is a hole in this pan. You will need a rachet, an extension and the proper size socket to fit the drain **** on the bottom of the radiator. Be sure to have a shallow container ready to catch the expelled fluid. This water is VERY TOXIC!
