    I recently had a new radiator installed in my 2001 Jeep Wrangler and the drain on the bottom leaks from time to time. Is there a way to plug or seal it to keep from buying another radiator?

    Welcome to the site! Are there any particular conditions when it leaks?

    Welcome! How new is your new radiator? Taken it back to the shop that installed it yet? Sure its not a leak from a different higher location trickling towards the bottom? Try to tighten the radiator drain cock a bit more?

    I am sure it is coming from the drain. I did not know it had a screw. i was told it was spring loaded. I am going to wipe it clean and try to tighten it. I will reply to let everyone know how it goes.
