    Is there any problem with removing the 2 block drain
    plugs on the 2.7l V-6 engine when doing a coolant
    change? On other engines, it's usually a faster
    method than just draining the radiator alone. Is it
    necessary to remove both plugs for a complete
    drain? (The one on the front side is in a hard to
    reach spot above the starter, which may also
    get soaked when draining.)

    The plugs seem to have blue RTV on the threads.
    Is this the preferred sealant when putting things
    back together?
