Question about Holden Cars & Trucks
Any radiator I ever flushed had a valve near the bottom of the radiator that stuck out. I am concerned about noise though-sure your water pump is not going out?

Perform a liquid block test (with the bottle of fluid over the radiator mouth.) If the blue liquid turns yellow or clear, you have hydrocarbons entering the cooling system (usually via head gskt.) If not, you have ruled out a costly repair.
Sounds like it overheats pretty easily, without t-stat! This block testing liquid is cheap, and will verify a suspected leaking head gasket without lengthy diagnosis. Hope it's better news, but good luck!

The drain should be on the drivers side at the bottom of the radiator, facing the driver. It's a plastic "wing" that unscrews. There should also be a bleeder for exhausting the air from the system when you refill. The bleeder I'm familiar with is a brass screw screwed into the thermostat housing. (where the top hose attaches at the engine)

SATURN USED A PRESSURE COOLANT SURGE TANK AND A INLET SIDE THERMOSTAT.THEY DONT HAVE BLEEDER SCREWS.YOU NEED LET CAR SET A LITTLE AT A TIME CRANK ENGINE FOR FEW MINUTES TURN OFF ENGINE.CHECK COOLANT LEVEL WHEN ENGINE SET LONG ENOUGH NOT TO SCALD YOU REMOVE PRESSURE CAP.ADD COOLANT TO SURGE TANK UNTIL LEVEL STAYS AT HOT FULL.WHEN COOLANT LEVEL QUIT DROPPING YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AMOUNT COOLANT.YOUR PRESSURE CAP COULD CAUSE OVER HEATING AND THE THERMOSTAT COULD BE BAD ALSO.

The bleeder fitting, should be close to the pressure line connecting to the back side near the top of the wheel cylinder assembly.In fact, it should be directly above the line on the wheel cylinder.I have seen where a Mazda b-2000 pickup used only one bleeder fitting for both brakes,was there at the end of the line,being on the left rear wheel..

The bleeding nipple would be near the water pump rad hose inlet and beneath the thermostat valve cover.
Bleeding is easy, just fill up the radiator and the reservoir w/ coolant run the engine for 5 min and open the bleeding nipples! or Just fill up the radiator before u start the engine, early morning, run the engine for 5 min. untill the thermostat valve opens, open the radiator cap( use a wet rag ), carefull not to open it instantly! Fill up the radiator while the engine runs, add coolant while u slightly reving up the engine.
Do these and open the heater to maximum, air might be inside the core too!
Hope that helps u out!
