Malibu Classic 2.2 liter engine

How do you drain the coolant out of the radiator on a 2004 Malibu Classic with a 2.2 liter engine. I see a white plastic plug on the lower drivers side corner of the the radaitor. I assume I just turn this? I am more use to seeing a wing type fitting, but I do not see this on this car.

Can't say for sure and would not advise removing a plug on an assumption until you know from someone who actually knows. A junkyard man might, if you did not want to call the dealership. For all you might not know, it could be a non replaceable (or difficult) factory installation port for something.

But WikiAnswers says for 2001 that if not on bottom of radiator, to just take off lower hose to drain. I wonder who the author is?
