Best Answer

I have a 99 cavalier. The drain plug for mine is in the bottom right corner of the radiator as you are facing the front of the car. You attach a rubber hose to the side and turn the plug counter clockwise to open it. I don't know if a 97 is the same, but cavaliers don't seem to change too much from one year to the next.
