Ford does not sell a $5 drain plug for a 2012 MKZ. Instead they want you to buy a new radiator. RIDICULOUS!!!
Has anyone found a replacement which I can get at an auto store or fleebay that will work. Only other option is to find the right radiator in a junk yard. Ford parts dealer said the same radiator is in a MKZ, Fusion, or Milan from 2007 to 2012. My car has a 3.5L engine which is code C on the 8th digit of the VIN. Not sure if other cars with different usually smaller engines will have the same radiator.

Start with your local auto parts store. I know that there are some Dorman drain plugs that they will carry in store or could order for you. I suspect you can find one there. These are plastic parts so they has got to be a replacement. You are not the first person that has needed one.
