is the leak at the top of the radiator?if it leaks around a bolt then the radiator is probably cracked. alot of people mistake the drain as a bolt wich is located towards the bottom of the facing the engine.if this is the case then you probably have a drain that loosened up and all you do is tighten it back down.
