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.
