radiator drain plug...!
first off, what up to you all... hows everyone doing? well my quick question is, where the hell is our drain plug for the radiator located... i checked on the tech already but for some reason i cant really understand it and find it at all... the picture diagram said that it is located to the bottom right corner, but still cant find it... can some one please tell me where it is so i can drain out the old coolant and put the new one in, thanks to all...

what would be the alternate to unpluging the two pugs on behind the engine block for emptying radiator fluid from the car....
is there a hose i can unplug then just let it drain from there? if so where? i tried disconnecting the bottom passenger side hose on the radiator and turned on my car with the heater on but nothing comes out?
