Bleed Bolt

I bled my cooling system by loosening the bleed/bubble bolt on my radiator hose housing. After tightening, I have a slight leak around the bolt, is this common or did I overtighten? I only snugged it up. Should I place a washer in between?

Thanks!!!

I would try a new plug and check the mating surface, then I would try a soft washer like copper or aluminum.

You over tightened or possibly broke the bleeder bolt (it is hollow and easy to break)

Supposed to me a brass/copper washer under the head of the bolt.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?
