Default Drain plug

So today I PLANNED to crank my car for the first time. Added oil. Then water....

But my drain plug seems to have fallen out in the 3 months my car has been down. Does anyone know what the thread size is on the plug so I can get this damn thing running

93 as it says in my sig. I've been back and forth to Autozone all day trying to figure it out. I guess I'll take one last trip with the number you provided.

if they don't have it, im sure they can at least order it, but you'll have to wait a few days. come to think of it though, it sounds like you grabbed the right part the first time. are you sure you have a oem radiator?

Ok... After 4 trips to Autozone today trying to find the right drain **** for my radiator my car still sits in the garage waterless and not running. Autozone has no **** for it , I tried #61127, nor can they order one. There are no Mazda dealerships within 50 miles of here and they even have to order it and it would cost ~$16 which I think is total BS

Does anyone know what size bolt could be used? That would save me lots of trouble.

And no I'm not %100 sure this is an OEM radiator... I guess I will have to get a thread gauge and see what size this thing is...
