Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler
On metal tank units just unscrew it. I generally replace them with an npt brass plumbing plug. drains often fail... the plug lasts forever. On plastic tanks some are molded in, if so cut it off with a hacksaw blade, thread it to npt plug thread and use plug. Wrap either with teflon tape before installing.
A faster way of draining is to remove lower hose at the radiator.
Never open the system when it's hot. National pipe thread plugs are tapered. Don't overtighten or they will split what they are being installed in.

If a freezeplug is leaking, it is usually rusting through, so JBWeld won't hold then either.
To get them out, I usually try drilling a hole in the middle, threading a bolt in it, and then pulling it out with a crow bar.
A sharp chisel will also allow you to cut through the soft steel.
But if you don't replace it with an expandable rubber style, and want to use an actual steel replacement, you can't just drive the new one in with a hammer and socket.
You need to use permatex sealer, and then after beging driven down to the right level, you must hit the center dome.
That expands the plug and sets it.
If you don't set it, it will come out later.
