Hey Willie==If it comes out the cap and not the overflow jug, the cap is faulty plus what is causing it to get hot. 'Check the fans for proper operation. If it isn't smoking white smoke, it probably isn't the head gaskets. A stuck thermostat will also cause it ot overheat. If all else fails, take it to a radiator shop and have the radiator flow tested. GoodluckJoe

There may be a hole in the radiator?

If it is coming from the radiator or the hoses this would mean your antifreeze is boiling in the lines. I would recommend first changing the thermostat and bleeding the air from the rad lines.

Most Likely you have a leak from the transmission cooling tank on your radiator to the antifreeze portion of the radiator. Jeff

Are you sure that isn't antifreeze and if so that would indicate the radiator is defective. There is a transmission oil cooler in the radiator.
