1995 Dodge Caravan has a Radiator Draincock of some sort I have never seen before. Looks to turn 1/4 turn?? Does it pull or something? Do not want to break it

If it survives, usually the seal crimps or cuts when being inserted and then the darn thing leaks.
Don't ask me how I know!
Either do what what Shipo wisely does, or have a new one in hand before you attack the old one.
You are right, it is twist and then pull, only you have to twist the right amount, no more and no less, and then pull. Having a new one to compare will give you a better idea of how much to twist.
Also, when pulling, be careful as the neck where the part install may crack if you pull too much or at an angle. A little oil or grease will help install the new one without too much force, and also prevent the o-ring from being cut during installation. The new one will first be pushed in, and then part twisted to seat fully. Do NOT overtwist or you will have a new leak and spend 5 more bucks.
