The textbook method is to remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.

Most drain plug is make of inexpensive 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

It should be there. Just look hard under the radiator back-side wall, or directly under the radiator.

How do I get to the radiator drain plug? 2003 Astro Van


Great news for you, the best way to drain the radiator is to remove the lower radiator hose. The bad news is that OEM radiator came with no drain plug and you can have one put in after you remove the radiator to drill a hole and tap in a $6.00 radiator drain plug for NAPA auto parts. Good luck and hope this helps. this was a way for GM to save money by one less parts to have make, since most auto mechanic just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the radiator. Good luck and hope this helps. If your luck and your Astor does have one, you can find the drain plug on the lower drivers side of the radiator, engine side.

Cannot drain radiator in my 2003 dodge durango to flush system


I'm guessing that you do not have a radiator drain plug. It would be located on the bottom of the radiator. If not the next best solution is to disconnect the lower radiator hose. You will only need to loosen the clamp, and slide the hose off the radiator. Don't forget to have something to use to collect the fluid. Keep it off until you are ready to refill. Hope this helps
