None on the block, other than freeze plugs...
The only drain is on the bottom of the radiator (you knew that)...

I installed a Prestone motor flush kit and it flushes just fine, but does not "empty" the engine cavities. This is better, anyway.

You have to splice a "Tee" fitting into a convenient heater hose (highest one).

Hope this helps..

I need to drain the antifreeze where is the plug from the engine block


The textbook method is to remove the drain plug. Most drain plug is make of nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.

The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.

Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant
