Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series
The textbook method is to remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.
Most drain plug ismake 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
I just did a FREE write up on air purge from coolant system and how todetect initial state of blown head gasket at the Fixya tip selection.

On the bottom of the radiator is a drain plur, you will need to turn the drain 1/4 of 1/2 turn and this will allow the radiator to drain, most cases you will not have to completely remove the drain plug, if the over tank does not drain you will have to disconnect the hose on the bottom of the tank and drain it seperate.

First check for the rad fan working. It could be the Fan relay, bad ground connection or coolant temp sensor (commands the fan relay). If not, check for little tiny bubbles in the coolant. Do this by running the vehicle with the rad cap off. Make sure there is no pressure in the cooling system first or you will get burned (squeeze rad hose, should be cool and easy to squeeze). Look into the top of the rad and watch for these tiny little bubbles. If they are present, you will need a head gasket.

There should be a petcock along the bottom of the rad. Most newer rads don't have a cap the antifreeze is added through the overflow tank.

theres no radiator fill, the cap on the over flow tank is considered the radiator cap, thats where you fill the radiator, hope this helps.
