Tighten the drain plug.
Go to the parts store to buy a replacement drain plug with new o-ring if it has one.
Or, gets some radiator sealant and pour it in.

Where is the drain plug on the rdaitator


Many radiators no longer have a "drain plug". Using the drain plug can cause the plug to leak after draining. The best option if you wish to drain the radiator is to pull the lower hose.

Radiator drain plug leaking


try fitting a flat rubber gasket on the plug before fitting. It is possible the there was one on it but it fell off unnoticed or was cracked and broke off.

Leaking radiator. probably at the drain plug


since you loose the radiator drain plug and screw it back in I believe that on the drain plug there is an "O" ring which it gets either harder or cracked. Just renew the "O" ring or the drain plug.

My 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 liter is leaking coolant from what appears to be the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.I have to replace about 2 quarts of fluid after a short drive.And no one has drained...


The Drain Plug aka Radiator Drain **** has an o-ring on it that does wear-out over time, causing a leak. You can remove and replace these relatively ease. They only turn 1/4th to 1/3rd Counterclockwise to Open and Clockwise to Close. Work on only when the engine is cool. Leave the cap on the radiator to create a suction, decreasing the amount of radiator fluid you will lose. OR drain the Radiator Fluid into a clean container and save for reuse.
Have the new Radiator Drain **** ready for immediately insertion after removing the other leaking Radiator Drain ****. To Remove:
Twist the Radiator Drain **** counterclockwise and pull, continuing to twist counterclockwise removing it.
Immediately install the new Radiator Drain **** by first pushing in and then twisting clockwise to close.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

1999 Jeep GC is leaking at the plug. Is this a common problem?


If you have a radiator repair shop near by, have them fix it for you.you take it out and they fix it.Or replace it.Now if you are really good and want to save money you can try to epoxy it with a high temp resin repair kit.cleaning is the most important part to make this work.
