IT looks like a screw thats pugging a hole not to be confused with the thermistor or fan switch which has wires connected to it, you could just pull the lowest hose off the radiator if its a cross flow type radiator and make sure that you drain it into a tray or some container and dispose it in an appropriate way ie licensed contracter/garage/council

Flushing the coolant system


Once the engine has cooled, locate the radiator drain plug and place a large catch pan underneath it. To expedite the draining process, remove your radiator fill cap to allow air to enter the system. With the cooling system refilled with tap water, replace the radiator fill cap and run the engine allowing it to reach operating temperature.drain radiator,
At this point, if you have opted to purchase a radiator flush kit, you should refill the cooling system with tap water and add the caustic fluid as directed.
Run the engine for as long as the radiator flush kit calls for (usually less than 10 minutes). follow directions on bottle for flushing. if you feel you want to use a T connection just cut into return line, from heater core. then you can use a garden hose to flush system.

Hi, if there is not a petcock or plug at the bottom of the radiator, you can just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant. Many cars do not have drain plugs. Please let me know if you have more questions and thanks for using FixYa.

You may have an air pocket in your system which some times happens.  One way to get rid of it is to take the upper hose off on the engine side,  fill your system with water until it runs out from your engine block, replace the hose, start your car turn you heater on and set to hi keep the radiator cap loose until the temp start to rise then close tight.  Once the air pocket had been remover you can drain some of the water from the radiator using the lower drain plug and add antifreeze.
