I have a 1994 Chevy s10 blazer too. Changed the coolant 1 1/2 years ago. Using only my fingers I tightened the drain plug and it started to tighten and then got loose so I didn't tighten it as hard and it seemed to hold. A year later I was loosing antifreeze. Took it to my mechanic and watched him put a pressure tester on it and all the antifreeze blew out so he thought the end tank was cracked. He changed the radiator and said it was only the drain plug. I had forgotten about my previously problem until then. Well now three months later and I am loosing antifreeze again. Couldn't find a leak until I looked at the drain plug and the little tube connection was dripping. Using only my fingers turned 1/4 turn and then to make sure it was tight turned a little more (wasn't straining to tighten) and it too stripped out! Is this a common problem?
