Plastic tanks have a screw in drain in the bottom of the radiator tank
it is up in a housing and has a cross in the end for a large philips screw driver
you may have to remove splash panels to get to it.

Did you install a new thermostat and make sure to bleed all the air out of the system when you replaced the radiator? If you didn't, or installed a Stant thermostat, replace it with a FACTORY OEM thermostat. Make sure the cooling system is bled by opening your radiator cap (WHILE THE CAR IS OFF AND COLD), starting the car and running the heater. Add coolant to the radiator as the engine heats up, until is at normal operating temperature AND starts spitting coolant back out.
Hope this helps,

Should just thread in. Unless it is now stripped. Which is why I don't touch them. Pulling the lower radiator hose to drain the radiator is an easier and safer method IMHO.
