    I found it after a stuggle with the big poly pannel and its tiny rusted 3,000 screws, that goes from the bumper to the frame. The drain plug is a 3/4 inch white poly nut, at the bottom side of the radiator, on the drivers side. I did not want to remove the lower hose, to cut back on messyness.

    If you think opening the rad drain is going to get all your antifreeze out, you think wrong.
