What makes you think there is 1? And why are you trying to drain block?

I'm changing the coolant. I've already drained and flushed the radiator, now I want to get the rest out. My Haynes manual says there's a drain plug on the block and shows a picture of the location but I don't think the picture they show is of the same car I have.

Yah, haynes is notorious for lack info or misleadng info. You might try calling dealer or stopping by to see if they know/can find out? And ask how they perform anti freeze changeover.
