It's not a major catasrophe, but its not normal, just get a new plug, and make sure its not overfilled.

I have the mopar chrome cover and it has the plug that screws in. So i am just going to take it out and put some rtv on the threads and put it back in.

Normal in the sense that a lot of folks allow it to happen.

No leaks are designed according to spec that I am aware of.

I think a lot depends on what you are comfortable with letting leak.

Think of it this way.....if stuff can get out, ( bad ), crap can get in, ( worse ) !

Ya man, thats totally normal, dodges are like harleys, they leak and drip all over the dam place but they are still cool,,lol,,, not really, , just get some teflon tape, or some pipe thread sealant, rtv will work for a bit, but im thinking teflon tape or, some pipe thread sealing compound would be best

I dont know if i would say normal, but not that uncommon. I think more men than women have this problem. The old O rings just lose their seal after a while. Just put on a pair of Grampers, and stay out of the pool.
