1998 Lexus ES 300
I was following the DIY to drain/refill coolant and while loosening the rear drain plug it fell out. It is stripped the threads on the bolt quite badly. I can manage to get it screwed back in, but it does not hold a seal.
I'm not sure what this bolt is called or what the part number is. I brought it to Napa and Advance Auto who didn't have a replacement. I'm hoping that a replacement will work and the threads in the engine area are okay.
Does anyone know of an equivalent I could possibly get locally, or an alternate idea? The guy at Napa recommended trying some rtv sealant when I put the bolt in, but I'm hesitant to do that.
Thanks in advance.
