Ok so I am not very gppd with cars and I accidentally added coolant into the reservoir tank instead of the radiator. I didnt see the max line and I filled it all the way to the top. I drove on it for a day or 2 before I notices it was leaking coolant. I took a turkey baster an got the coolant back down where its supposed to be in the reservoir. I read online that this isnt a very serious issue. I just want to know how long it takes before the leaking should stop. Because it has been leaking for the past 2 days. Its a very slow drip but when you drive it and then turn the car off. Coolant just leaks out as a steady stream for about 15 seconds then just goes back to tw drips.

It shouldn't have hurt anything. Check to make sure the tank isn't cracked or the hose isn't leaking.
