clogged drainage hole in the cowl (under the wipers)...

If there is coolant coming from it and it isn't a hose.
It uses a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze/coolant
it will say low coolant and it means you need to add a mix of 50/50 coolant and water to the overflow.
A 1997 Chevy Cavalier uses a standard 50/50 mix of antifreeze coolant and water. This keeps the engine from overheating and from freezing in the winter.
The 2003 Chevrolet Venture coolant capacity is four gallons. The coolant can be mixed 50 percent anti-freeze and 50 percent water.

50:50 if the coolant you buy is uncut. otherwise they do sell premixed antifreeze whick is already cut to 50:50
There's a coolant temperature sensor located on the lower part of the water pump on the drivers side.

50/50 mixture of DEXCOOL and water
To the left of the thermostat housing, It screews into the intake water jacket.
Connected to the upper radiator hose. Coolant flows from the engine to the radiator to be cooled. The coolant temp. sensor should be screwed into it.
A 2000 Chevrolet Silverado with a 5.3 liter engine takes 13.4 quarts of coolant. It is suggest that the coolant be mixed 50/50 with water.
