The 97 Cavalier doesn't have a typical drain on the radiator, as the entire system is closed and should only need service every 100,000 miles (barring any leaks or malfunctions) with the Dex-Cool coolant. To drain the cooling system, all you have to do it get under the radiator on the passenger side of the car and locate the drain plug. When you remove it, the coolant will run onto a piece of the frame and finally down through a nearby hole. You'll need to place something like an oil pan under the hole to catch the coolant.
