1997 3.8L V6 Manual
On the bottom of the radiator, passenger side, there is a small "tube", about 1/2" long next to the wing nut. There is nothing connected to it and it is leaking about a dime size amount of antifreeze overnight. I just replaced the water pump, alternator, and thermostat. What is this "tube" and why is it leaking?

the tube is the drain!

go get a small rubebr cap, like bike tire valve cap nose spray caps work well. something that will fit it and not let fluid drip.


first try to tighten the wing nut.
