Do you have a bad valve in the engine head? That is a major job and the head has to be removed to make the repair. The repair would be done by a machine shop.

No the drain vavle on the bottom of the rad is leaking and wondering how to remove it to replace?

If you have a plastic radiator then you probably can't remove the valve itself but you can unscrew the center of the valve and replace the O-ring. Have a bucket handy to catch the coolant.

You can buy replacment valve so Im c sure it comes off somehow
