How do you know it is the petcock if you cant find it?

It is on the bottom of the radiator.

When I brought my car to the my mechanic for some other work to be done, he noticed it was leaking from there. Can it be replaced or do I have to change the radiator?

I did not diag the leak, your mechanic did. I am going on your info so I dont know if it has to be replaced or not. No matter what, if you have a leak, it must be fixed.

Let me rephrase this. Is it possible to fix the petcock or not? If not, then obviously I need to replace the radiator. I just want to know if it is possible to fix.

One more quick question a friend of mine would like to know. Does the radiator need to be removed to fix/replace the petcock?

The petcock should be on the bottom of the radiator on the driver's side. If it is leaking, chances are the rubber bushing on it is bad. And as mentioned, you can usually repair it or just replace it. As far as removing the radiator, you don't need to. You should be able to access the part if you safely lift the front of the vehicle high enough for you to get under it.
