Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
The best way is to replace it. Anything else will just be temporary. To replace it, drain the cooling system first. Use a hammer and cold chisel or big screwdriver and tap on one spot on the edge to make it turn in the hole. With it turned grab it with vise grips and work it out. Have a bucket handy because it will leak. Place the new plug in the hole and tap around the edges to start it back in, and keep going until it is flush with the block. A light coat of silicone would be a help in sealing the new plug but don't get too carried away with it because you don't want excess silicone floating around in your cooling system to block passages. Hope this helps.
