    You say it drains out. Where exactly does it drain from. Is it coming out off radiator or one of the hoses?

I have a 2.2lt 2002 Calalier and I need to change the coolent. I have looked for a bleeder valve and am not able to find one. Can anyone please tell me where the bleeder valve may be located? I have a...

Okay, radiators these days, as a rule, do not have bleeder screws, or drains. If you need to drain the old coolant, put a catch can under the lower radiator hose, and remove it slowly from the radiator. This will allow you to drain the coolant, most of it anyway. You can never get it all.

Place a drain pan under the petcock.
Slowly turn the petcock CCW
Be careful to avoid contact with the flow if the car is hot
Open the petcock several turns until the flow is constant.
Remove the radiator cap to allow air into the radiator
once flow has stopped, close the petcock.

Is there anything more we can help you with?

1999 malibu no heat change thermo flushed rad blew out heatercore line hoses are hot get heat for a few min then goes cold air works fine

Chk for a vacuum controlled heater valve in the system. Usually on a hose. When the engine is not running it is open, but as soon as you start the engine, it closes and soon after the coolant in the core is stationary and cools down. GoodLuck _Ned_

Your fan motor might be fried... and check your coolant, they have a tool which measures its ability to do its job. you might need a radiator flush but start small... THe tool to make sure you anti-Freeze is good is very cheap. By one and test it (it tells you how to test it) then check your fuzes for your Radiator fans in your owners manual. if that is good take your fans off and have them tested. you need to get your fans working again even if you need to by new. And see if your car needs a coolant flush, ( a true flush not a drain and fill
