On the passenger side of the radiator you will find a drain **** on the bottom facing the motor. they are made of plastic and usually white in color. it will only open a half of a turn. Be sure the motor is completely cool before opening this as the coolant will be hot if not. Good luck

Install a radiator in 1998 buick skylark

Jack the vehicle up and then place a jack stand under the A-arm. Complete the same process on the passenger side of the vehicle. Jack the vehicle high enough to allow placement of at least a 3-gallon bucket under the radiator.
  • 2Locate the drain valve on the left hand side of the Skylark's radiator toward the bottom of the radiator. Place a 3 to 5-gallon bucket under the radiator in a manner that will allow the bucket to catch the fluid.
  • 3Turn the valve open with your fingers. If the valve will not open with your fingers use a small pair of pliers to open it. The further you open the valve the faster the fluid will drain.

    You can unplug the horns under the hood but the relay will still be on draining your battery....the horn pad is warped and when it sits in the sun it will flex and make contact so you need to take the pad off (2 screws behind the wheel) disconnect the single wire from the pad and tape the end up
