It should be on the bottom tank of the radiator. The pitcock is usually dirty white in color and will come out by twisting counterclockwise. I suggest loosening the plug in small increments so that you can control the coolant flow as it drains and avoid making a mess.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy S-10 Headlight bulb replacement?

There are two tabs that hold the Headlight assembly in place. Pull one up, then holding the Headlight assembly, pull the other one up. Locate the light that is burned out. Remove the harness from the light, then twist the light to remove. Replace with new one, and reverse process. Be careful to not touch the glass of the new bulb. The oil from your fingers and hands will shorten the life of the bulb

SOURCE: how to drain 2001 chevy caviler radiator

Hi

It sounds very much from your description that there is a strong possibility of air being trapped within the cooling system and causing the problem. This will cause the low fluid warning to appear on the car and although the vehicle will appear to be full of fluid - in fact you cannot replace enough fluid because of an air trap in the system.

Most vehicles cooling systems can be bled by removing the cap from the radiator or header tank and then simply allowing the vehicle to tick over for 10 minutes or so. Check and replace the fluid as the air is expelled from the system through the open header tank/radiator.

This may well resolve the problem without any further action on your part.

Some vehicles do have specific bleeding procedures for the cooling system but as far as I am aware this simple procedure is the standard method with your vehicle.

Also it is important to pay attention as to why the vehicle is loosing coolant in the first place. Is there a leak any where - check coolant hoses are not cracked. Is vehicle overheating because of fan failure hence boiling off fluid? Is there evidence of water getting into oil pointing to head gasket problems?

These things should all be considered in addition to clogged radiator.

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.
