Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala
Find the drain plug on either of the coolant end tanks on the radiator and open it (If you can't find it you can remove lower hose and it will do the same thing) Close the system back up and begin re-filling, start the engine and turn the heater on full hot and continue filling. Leave engine running and add coolant as needed . When it reaches operating temperature it will often try to first overflow a bit then level will drop as thermostat opens. At that point, re-fill again till full, leave running a few more minutes and then put cap back on. Check over for leaks and re-check level after it cools down and top off as necessary. Never open your system when it is hot.Keep pets away from anything you spilled it can kill them if they drink it.

At the bottom of the radiator there is a plastic petcock.drivers side if i remember right. This is ot really the best way.The best way would be to take it somewhere and have it flushed. Make sure to use dex cool.

SOURCE: antifreeze leaks
First thing you'll need to do is find out were the leak is coming from. If it's a hose leak the fix is simple. If, however, the problem is the radiator your better off having repair done by a qualified mechanic.
To find out were the leak is slide a piece of clean cardboard under the car, directly below the engine compartment and run the engine until it reaches operating temp. Shut of engine and look under the car for any obvious leaks and determine were the leak is coming from. If it is a hose you can, in most cases replace it yourself. Replacement hoses are avail;able at auto supply stores. This is also a good time to replace the hose clamps.
