Default Which way?

I drained my 2001 PT Cruiser’s radiator to change coolant. I turned the drain plug to let it drain.
I tried to close it but it will not stop draining. I forgot which way to turn it, I thought I turned it the
Proper way to close it, but it’s not working. I tried turning it clock wise but I just keep turning and the water won’t shut of. It plastic, all my older cars had a wing type metal nut with no question how it work.
How do you close this thing? Thanks

Sure sounds like your doing it the right way. Lefty loosy, righty tighty as they say.

Try pushing it (towards the radiator) while turning it clockwise.
