Put of Bars antifreeze stop leak in it. If you really want to see where it is leaking, park it over some clean card board and let it run for awhile, and then look above where the drip marks are. If there no no drip marks, it could be a head or intake manifold gasket.

When the radiator overheats for a long time, it can become damaged seriously. Overheating usually results when the car is driven for long distances without sufficient coolant, this may be as a result of leakage. If the radiator becomes too hot, let it cool before adding water into it and opening the spigot at its lower side. Check for any holes.
