Smile Coolant change

I think it is time to change my coolant on my 2013 Cmry 4 cylinder. Two things. What coolant is OK for this aluminum radiator? And where to heck it the drain valve?

Thanks guys for your help

The radiator would have a drain at the bottom. Not sure the engine block even has a drain.

As to coolant.

The Toyota dealer has their Toyota brand coolant (red in color).

Or Zerex Asian vehicle formula (Red label not blue label).

Pentosin A4

AISIN ACT-004

Need coolant for 2005+ Toyota.

NAPA and Autozone sell Pentosin.

I used Zerex and got it at Walmart for a reasonable price. 1999 Toyota Avalon V6. Just saw in the store prestone also covers Asian cars but would need to double check that first by calling prestone. Just to make sure.
