I got home from work, to find that my XJ had been leaking radiator fluid on the ground after about 10 minutes. Sad THere are no drips in the driveway leading up to the spot that it was leaking so I assume that the leaking started after I parked it. THere is a heavy amount of radiator fluid all over the left (passanger)front (where the radiator hose goes into the top of the radiator and over the alternator) side of the engine bay. I have had this radiator replaced close to a year ago for being damaged in an accident. Has anyone else had this problem before? It came on unexpectedly (as usual) and the XJ in a 99. I have no clue where the leak is from, I have inspected hoses on that side and seen/felt no tears or rips in the hose. I did notice a buldge on the engine end of the radiator hose that connects the engine up to the raditor, but no rips or burts, also no leaks around where the hose clamp holds it in place.

There was a hose, the hose on the passanger side that comes out of the engine to the radiator. It has a small hole, and while I was looking at it while the engine was running it showed a small leak on the opposite side that I was pushing on. SO it looks like a trip to the local car store/shop to grab a new hose. I'm thankful that it was just that.
