Default Bleeder valve location

Hi,

I am new to this board and I am attempting to change the coolant in my mom's car. I have a manual that shows several locations for the bleeder valve but all of the locations that they provide do not have a bleeder valve in those locations. It also states that some of them do not have a bleeder valve. My question is can anyone tell me if her car is equiped with a bleeder valve and if so where would I find this. The enging is a 2.2 LT, automatic trans. Thank you for any help that you can give me.

You may just have to remove the lower rad hose and let it drain out there

your manual is showing bleeders for the 2.4l engine option. the 2.2 doesn't have them. lower rad hose it is i guess.
