Question about 2000 Buick Century
If you want to flush the raditor remove the big hoses, don't worry with the drain plug as you can't flush it good enough with the drain open anyway. If your just changing the fluild you can drain it and fill it but thats not flushing it. remove the therostate too and flush the engine and remove the heater hoses and flush them too. As you may not know what kind of antifreeze is in the motor now you need to get all of it out as some kinds of antifreeze don't mix and make a clogging slime instaed of good coolant. Do it right or take it to a shop that will.

depends on what motor you have, it'll either be on the bottom of radiator (you might have to move the cover to get at it) or in the rear of the engine block. if you get at them i'd simply just remove the lower hose from the radiator. just make sure car is compleatly cooled down first.

the easiest way that I've found is to just remove the upper, and lower radiator hoses from the engine. point the hoses downward, and spray thru the top hose with a garden hose, also spray down the radiator cap inlet. If the cap is crusty replace it, I also recommend removing the overflow and washing it out if needed. and yes the drain plug is hard to get to, plastic that likes to snap, and not worth messing with

Testimonial: "I agree,seems to be the best way without breaking the plastic petcock and leaving you stranded.Thanks for the info."
should be on the bottom of radiator,some only have a plug,if you can't locate just undo bottom radiator hose and flush.
