Leak from Radiator neck

2008 3.7L Sport.

I noticed a leak from a plug on the radiator neck this morning.



I've never removed the plug before and before I unseat it, i want to investigate whether it may be replaceable. I have not been able to find the part on the replacement parts schematic pics i've found. anyone know whether a replacement plug or o-ring can be purchased somewhere?

thanks in advance.

@schrader; Are you sure that's not just leaking from the cap? That's what it looks like to me from that pic....

That being said, I don't know if that one plug can be bought by itself, you might want to try a salvage yard.

FYI, a brand new radiator for your 3.7L V-6 is only about $190.00 at AutoZone.

I had a leak in that area and it turned out to be the overflow hose right above it.
