There is a special tool to remove fitting. Don't get too rough...you will damage heater core. This will turn a small problem into a big one!

You can TRY eponxy .(Have to let it settle and get hard for a day or so.) This is a low pressure area10 - 15 psi. it may work NO guarantees. I've done it once that was on a 2000. . This car is still on the road. I have not touched the heater hoses since. Good luck

on metal tank units just unscrew it. I generally replace them with an npt brass plumbing plug. drains often fail... the plug lasts forever. On plastic tanks some are molded in, if so cut it off with a hacksaw blade, thread it to npt plug thread and use plug. Wrap either with teflon tape before installing.
A faster way of draining is to remove lower hose at the radiator.
Never open the system when it's hot. National pipe thread plugs are tapered. Don't overtighten or they will split what they are being installed in.
