where is the coolant drain -lumina

92 lunina ...cannot find the radiator drain..to do the thermostat
change...
Also how much should be drained....Ive been told to a level that
is below the thermostat.....well I cant actually see the level so what, a gallon or so?
any ideas?

Also can the drained coolant just be placed back in if it is clean?

Now's a good time to change the coolant as you have to drain a gallon or so out to do the stat .

Check autolibrary.org for the other information you seek.

The plugs on these newer cars dont look like the old petcocks used to. They are sometimes just a plastic pipe plug with a hex on it or maybe with a flat tab on it for you to grip with your fingers. Look at the bottom of the radiator tanks for this plug. Your tanks are located at the left and right side of the radiator and are part of it. When was the last time you changed the coolant...you you be wise to flush the entire system and install a new mixture 50/50 coolant and water.

Your drain may look something like this.

Good, than drain in a clean pan and reuse. Drain to a level below the thermostat, you'll still hae some spillage when you remove the housing. Good luck-Stevo
