Where is the coolant bleeder valve on a 2000 chevy malibu

There are two! the easy one should be right under the bottom radiator hose on the radiator . the second is harder to get to it's located on the engine block, depending what motor you have depends where it is located, usually on the side towards the bottom. its a screw in plug when removed it will drain your engine.

Where is the drain valve for the coolant on a 2005 maxx 3.5 ltr engine

Chevy has long ago done away with coolant drain plugs. You will need a fluid evacuator to get the coolant out.

Where is the coolant tank to replace antifreeze in the 2005 chevy malibu? what identifying code or numbers is on the cap?

The coolant reservoir is on the passenger side of the vehicle. It will look similar to this.


If the coolant is original you will need to top off with "DEXCOOL" coolant. It is an extended life coolant and should not be mixed with regular green coolant.

If the coolant has been serviced most of the time they will flush out the dexcool and fill it with normal coolant. If the coolant looks green than this is probably true and you can add regular green coolant.

If your not sure what is in it there is a product approved for "all makes/all models".

What kind of coolant is used in this car, and how do I recharge it?

You can use any premium brand. Simply follow the directions on the container. It will also tell you how often to drain & replace the coolant. Most brands last either one or two years. The drain valve is on the bottom back side of the radiator.
