I use a little neversez on the threads. First time I drained the radiator I could not loosen mine it was corroded. Replaced it with an AutoZone POS and found upon refilling the radiator the draincock was bad.... It worked fine before refilling.... Took the OEM one on the vise and opened it with vise grips wire brushed it well applied neverseze and it works swell now.

What pontiac said. It's freewheeling and it's done. Take the old one off and replace it. (or just loosen the shaft with vice grips and tighten it back up if you want to bugger it even more!!!!) :)
