Make sure the engine is cool so you don t burn yourself. Remove the radiator cap. Then look on the bottom of the radiator in the corner. Most likely the driver s side and there will be a drain valve. Gently twist counter clockwise and some you have to gently pull out a little at the same time. Once it has stopped draining then I have also attached the proper way to service. Make sure you use a 50/50 mix of the correct antifreeze. If you wanted to take it another step, here is a link to flushing.
