My drain plug was leaking so I replaced the O ring and tightened it back down and refilled coolant, but the little port that fits the rubber tube (for draining) kept a leak going and then the plug itself started leaking again.
Ive tried getting the plug out without success. Im ready to just run a bead of RTV around the plug and stuff some RTV into the drain hole itself to stop the leaking. Any ideas? good bad idea to do this?

Thanks

My stock 2001 radiator has a plug that needs to be turned, then pulled perpendicular. Its not a intuitive design, as a matter of fact, its back as#@. I had turned the plug, but forgot which way was locked. Ends up you can pull it out with a pair of pliers. I think the tab is horizontal when its closed. Who designed this plug?
