First of all the radiator drain petcock is plastic, well the only ones they have at like auto zone and other stores are metal and don't fit there too big... I dunno what happened to the one i have but it's like it doesn't close or i don't know how to close it one of the two. here's a pic of the one i have on it right now

Another problem i'm having is when i'm driving it's like my engine jumpes like starts to kick and my fuel gauge goes from like half full to under the E


If anyone has any advice/info that could help i'd much appreciate it.

As far as the drain plug...it's a POS. You could always go to the stealership and get a new one. You could also go to Lowes or Home Despot and get a plug/bolt with the same thread pattern/depth. Just put some teflon tape or thread sealer on the threads of the bolt before you install it.

With the second problem, it's most likely something in the fuel pump module. The module installs into the top of the fuel tank and contains the fuel gauge sending unit, the filter, the pressure regulator and the pump itself. The only way to get at it is to drop the fuel tank. It could be any one of those components causing the problem but my guess would be the sending unit since the gauge is affected...but that's just a guess.
