hey all

greg (happy) undid my bottom radiator plug, but it seems to have rolled into the bumper/cross-member area and i can't seem to find it! :?

question is, can i buy just the plug from any auto store? are they all (within reason) the same size/thread? :?

cheers!

I know where it will be Frase. I dropped Happys one as well. I know the little area in the front where it sits.

You can get a valve tp screw into where the plug used to be, so when you go to change oil you just release a valve instead of unscrewing a plug, I keep meaning to buy one. Good excuse to upgrade to one!

Will try and find a link for it..

ugh thought it was sump plug for some reason. $50 strikes me as pretty steep for a little thing like that valve anyway.
