That plug is the radiator drain plug... it has a rubber gasket behind it that can be replaced... but chances are it is just loose.
Tighten the plug a little bit and see if that stops the leak.

Get the coolant pressure tested, its definitely leaking coolant. You will need to get the coolant running line.

I can not find the drain plug for the radiator


Most radiators have a pit **** to drain them. It is a small plastic butterfly looking valve in the bottom corner of the radiator. These valves are usually very fragile and always seem to leak after they have been loosened. I prefer to loosen the clamp on the bottom radiator hose and pull it off to let the radiator drain.

Water leaks from a small opening on the bottom left of radiator. What is the opening for?


if you mean the driver's side, that opening is where the radiator drain plug is located. The drain plug has a O ring that may have gone bad and will need to be replaced. Auto Zone or Napa will have the replacement part needed to stop the leak, and do not add any radiator stop leak. The stop leak will cause a restriction to your heater core and in the winter you may have heating issues.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck with the simple fix.

Tranny radiator leak


If the leak is minor take it to a radiator shop and they can probably fix it for you for much cheaper than replacing it. Try tightening the hose, if it is leaking from the crimped end of the hose (where the hose mets the connector), then you will have to replace the hose. If you are getting green then its the actual radiator thats leaking and happen to be leaking trough transmission cooler vents.

Leak undeneath upper radiator hose


Hi:
The radiator on your Focus is mostly plastic on the top and bottom, and the middle section is aluminum/ alloy. If you examine the radiator, and are sure it isn't leaking from the hose connection, then the radiator will need repaired. sometimes, small leaks in the middle , metal section are sealed just by using some radiator stop leak in your engine's coolant. A radiator shop can replace the top or bottom plastic piece on your radiator too, and often it is a good idea to check the price of an entire radiator at your local auto parts store, as sometimes you can buy a radiator for less than the cost to repair your old one.

I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY ELDORADO EVERYTIME I START MY CAR ON LOW OIL PRESSURE STOP ENGINE! I BELIEVE THAT I HAVE OIL LEAKING FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE RADAITOR OR FROM SOME WHERE FROM THE FRONT OF MY ENGINE!...


Oil leaks can come from any where. Search for information on tracer dyes on-line. If its from the radiator area and the oil appears red its transmission oil. In most cars there is an area in the radiator for cooling the transmission oil. Try replacing tightning but not over-tightning the clamps in the two small hoses connected to the radiator.

2003 volkswagon beetle radiater leak


Hi, you 1st have to determine the exact location of the leak, which may involve removal of the radiator to repair anyway. How bad is the leak? How often do u have to add coolant, and how much? If it's a minor leak, you can purchase 'radiator stop leak' from a parts store, that will seal it.
so, try the stop leak if it's a minor leak, you can have it removed and repaired, or purchase a new one. Having said all that, the leak could be a hose leaking, but running down and dripping off the radiator making it look like a radiator leak. With engine warm but not running, use a small mirror to hunt around to see if u can find the source of the leak. Look closely under the radiator hoses, as that could be where the leak is. It would be from the radiator bottom and up, any further back and it wouldn't show up at the bottom of the radiator, so no need to check back any further. Let me know what u find,good luck countrycurt0
