Like he said, it is on the driver's side, on the bottom. Little hard to loosen at times. Nylon with o-ring.

Where is the coolant drain plug on the engine block 5.7L located

I know the 5.3 is located on the bottom (drivers side) of the radiator. There is a hose that snaps in a grommet going up the frame. You can unsnap the hose from the clip, lower the hose to a drain pan, then loosen the screw (valve) to drain.

Need best way to clean coolant from crank in 5.7 chevy

Not good my friend most or all of the coolant should be gone by now. sounds like you might have a hairline crack alowing antifreeze to newly enter your crankcase. Antifreeze in an engine for more than 100 miles turns into a creamy foam that exits your drain plug. and if the engine overheated and stalled out definitly. sorry Man.

How do you change coolant on a 2005 chevy silverado 1500

Open the hood, and to the right you will see a big thick hose connected to the top of the radiator, if you look down the right hand side of the radiator, you will see a thin hose with the opening facing up at you and it is connected to the lower part of radiator, where there is a plastic wing nut like plug, which when loosened, allows the coolant flow to come out of the small hose, but make sure that the hose is pointed down, into a 2 gallon bucket, then loosen. Also, nothing will come out unless you take the cap off your radiator reserve which is that square-ish looking container filled with orange dex cool (not green) coolant.
hope this helps you,good luck
