Radiator plug - by npk

I took out the plug(plastic Red color located at the bottom driver side) to drain and flush the radiator.

When put back, small amount of water seeping out(by the droplets). Took out the plug and wiped it with a cloth...put back, still water seeping out.

Took out the plug(the O-rings look OK, no crack and still soft), dry it and apply some rubber grease onto the O-rings.

Put the plug back and NO MORE seepage.

Guess if U do not have rubber grease, olive oil or cooking oil will be good enuff. Jangan use WD40 or engine oil onto O-rings. Eng oil and WD40 attack rubber parts.
