Having problems with your 2001 Oldsmobile Alero ?
2001 Oldsmobile Alero 2.4l engine, 244400 miles - radiator is leaking at drain plug. This happened after I drained the rad. for replacement. of hoses. Can the plug be replaced without putting in a new radiator?
You can try removing the plug and seeing if it is a gasket or an o-ring that seals it to the radiator. You should be able to find an o-ring or a gasket that will work at your local parts store. If replacing the o-ring or gasket does not work than the radiator will need to be replaced. We no longer drain radiators with the petcock for this reason.
