I'm not really sure what you mean but if you need to drain it and the tap on the bottom is stuck, undo the clamp on the lower hose and drain it into a pan. If you meant the core is clogged, you are pretty much out of luck. Try an autoparts store for radiator cleaning solution or mix 50/50 water and CLR. Do not leave this mix in there long because antifreeze is what lubricates the water pump and you will eventually burn it up by running anything else but antifreeze.

2004 trailblazer How much coolant will come out of water pump if you do not drain it?

I assume you want to change out the water pump and would like to know if you can do it without draining the radiator. You will lose approximately all the coolant in the radiator reservoir when you remove the radiator hose from the water pump. If the coolant is in good, clean condition, it might be wise to drain the radiator into a container and re-use the coolant.
