Hey guys. I feel like this is a common problem with these cars. I have a leak under the radiator underneath the drain plug. Its the hole on the very bottom of the radiator pointed straight at the ground. Any idea what could be causing this? Do you think I need a new drain plug or something worse? A picture of where its leaking from is shown below. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Same thing happened to mine last year. A new radiator fixed that.

Which cap? On the top of the radiator? Or do you mean the drain plug?

The small drain cap, sorry I wasn't specific

That will rule out the cap letting a amount out. It could potentially fool you because if you look at it you'll see that it has a small spout.

So if its defective you wouldn't essentially see it leaking at the cap it would be below.

Once you do this you can rule that out, and continue if needed.
