On my '87 Toyota van the resivor just slides off when you pull directly up on it... though im not sure if this is factory standard or a modification made by a previous(and possibly frustrated)owner of my van.

Locate the radiator and the coolant reservoir box. Remove the lid of the coolant reservoir. Then remove the drain plug from the bottom of the radiator. When the fluid has leaked out, put the plug in place. Pour in a mixture of distilled water and antifreeze into the reservoir, according to your needs or the specifications. Run the engine for three minutes, then check the coolant level and add more if needed. Be careful not to remove the hose from the reservoir as the plastic nipple it is fastened to will easily break if too much force is used.
