2000 Chevy Lumina - 75,000 miles. I am attempting to flush the radiator but cannot locate the drain valve or petcock. Should I just remove the lower hose? Also, how do I clean the plastic overflow container?

Thanks

If your facing the front of the car. THe drain valve is on your right side under the lower radiator hose. Be careful their plastic and break easly. The reservoir all you can do is remove it and scrub it out. I would just leave it.

Do you know if the drain plug unscrews or just pulls out?
