At this point you might just be better off removing the hose clamp from the bottom rad hose at your radiator.

Make sure you catch all the coolant and dispose of it properly. It is poisonous to animals and it tastes good to them.

Look up through the 1" diameter hole in the subframe near the driver'* side of the radiator. You'll need a flashlight.

Not tryin' to be a smarta$$, but make sure you close it again before adding the new coolant.

If you're in a hurry, remove the bottom hose. If your coolant is really "gunky" remove the bottom hose.
