Need some advise on coolant flush ASAP

Doing the flush right now.. Removed thermostat and dropped the lower radiator hose..got a lot of coolant out.. I am having to add water back into degas bottle and I dont add very much before it stops dropping...my truck is in the driveway on an incline..could that be the culprit? When I drain from the lower hose, the degas bottle drains also..So it cant be clogged... HELP
Call me if you an expert on this.. 317-919-5184

I know some is in the block as well. You need to unscrew the plug on the driver's side I think ( 1 side the plug is covered by the starter). This will drain more coolant out. You need to undo the plug ea. time you drain. ALex.
