    Default Radiator Drain bolt problem

    The drain bolt at the bottom of the radiator have very minor leakage ,I change this bolt few days back because the previous one have some crack in it but this one also leaks but the bolt is not cracked the bolt is fully tight if I tight more then it must be crack . The leakage is very minor so the problem is not the reduction of the coolant but the system takes air from this point , you can see in the pic that blue color coolant on the bolt , is their any solution for this problem ??

    It is quite possible that the threads on the plug are not quite "snug" inside the drain. If you have Teflon tape available, wrap it around the threads a few times. If you don't have access to it, you can use high temperature silicone sealant on the threads. Just don't overdo it. Use as little as needed. Teflon tape is much better option though. You should be able to find it easily at plumbing supply stores.

    Do not use any glues or epoxies.
    My opinions, suggestions and thoughts are strictly my own. I reserve the right to be human and make mistakes.
