Default Leaking coolant, not sure how to fix.

I have a 97 Ranger XLT 3.0 liter 6 cylinder. I am getting a drip from the upper drivers side hose. In the picture below (taken from the driver's side looking toward the front of the vehicle) you can see the drip. Although it varries, it seems to drip once every 10 seconds or so. This is a new radiator, less than a year old. I made sure the fittingss are tight, but the leak continues.

Does anyone have any advice\suggestions? I was hoping to be able to take a trip later this week, but not sure if it would be a good idea with a leak like this.

Thanks for any help.

Try some plumblers tape. I will help secure the fitting. If that doesn't work maybe replace the hose.

Default Thank you

Thanks for the advice. I ended up having to replace the radiator, thankfully it was still under warranty.
