Where is the coolant drain plug

On the bottom of the radiator. There will be a little plastic valve that looks like a butterfly. Spin this to loosen it, and it will let coolant flow out.

How do I flush the cooling system in a 2000 hyundai elantra?

There are several methods for flushing the cooling system on ALL engine cooling systems. Time honored is drain the radiator (drain ****). Fill with fresh water and run engine to operating temperature until cooling fans turn on. Drain cooling system again. Refill with 50-50 coolant. Another method is purchasing a "T" vlave (coolant flush/service kit) from Autozone, PepBoys, NAPA, O'Reilys, CarQuest, etc.). This "T" valve is installed in one of the heater hoses & attached to a garden hose. Remove the radiator cap & turn on the water supply to the garden hose. Let water run until flush water is 'clear'. Remove garden hose from T valve & refill radiator with pure coolant until the T valve drainage turns green/orange. Install T valve cap... DONE!

    Where on the radiator is the drain petcock 2004 gmc sierra 323? Does anything have to be removed to get to it?

    Some models do not have a petcock, pulling the lower radiator hose will suffice in drainage. I suspect you know what you are doing since you have the correct nomenclature. Use extreme caution during this type of draining procedure when coolant is hot. If it is not on the lower left or right corners of radiator side facing engine, it is not equipped with a drain valve.
