It may or may not have a drain plug for the radiator. Look at the bottom of the radiator usually on the passenger side of the car. It doesn't really look like an actual plug. It is more like a plastick wing nut, just unscrew it and it should drain. Some radiators don't have drain plugs at all. If it doesn't just take off the lower radiator hose from either the radiator or the engine block and do it that way

i think the sunfire drain is on the driverside of radiator facing forward. it should be a 1/4 inch hole in center. you have to turn and pull to drain. be careful not to damage plug or radiator.

Typically there is a Drain Valve that you manually open to drain the radiator. Caution Don't Do it When The Engine is Hot.

Sometimes you will be able to see the drain valve when you open the hood - look down either side of the radiator. You may see it but can't reach it. Sometime you have get under the car such that you are underneath the radiator, and look on either side. The drain valve may not stick out - it may be built flush to the radiator.
