Default OMG!OMG! Radiator fluid leaking from my new Ranger!!

Discovered the puddle when i went out for a smoke at work. Traced it to the radiator cap. Took it off and on and I think that fixed the problem. Hopefully.

well yeah if you don't want it to boil over and run out of coolant and crack your block so i think it would be best to just start it up and check. i seen some leak on the bottom hose on the bottom of it where u cant see unless you gut ubderneath

You can't just not have a radiator cap.

No leakage at all yesterday. Problem solved. I think I will pick up a new cap just in case. I believe when i went over a curb at Taco Bell's drive-thru Friday night it must have loosened it because there wasn't any leakage before. (Bought the truck Wednesday).
Or maybe the bug shield is the cause?
