The drain valve is on the back/bottom of one side of the radiator. If you're facing the van, it's on the driver side. You have to go under the van. If you raise it, use jackstands. When you're under the van, on the driver side, on the back of the radiator, near the bottom, you'll see the drain valve. It should be directly under the battery tray.

To open the valve, you'll need an Allen wrench. Once the valve is open, open the radiator. The radiator cap is on the coolant reserve tank, not on the radiator.

New AnswerYes there is a drain at the bottom of the radiator. It is located on the bottom corner of the radiator, drivers side, facing in the direction of the engine. You will have to raise the front of the van on ramps or jackstands to be able to get to it. It looks like a white plastic bolt and you can loosen it by turning it counter-clockwise with a wrench. Be careful when reinstalling it that you don't accidentally over tighten it or you might strip the threads.

The radiator drain plug is on passenger side of the radiator tank at the bottom. You can use pliers to loosen it. Be careful that it does NOT come out, only loosen it enough to drain the anti freeze.
