I had a lot of the cooling fluid right under where the radiator cap is (right side). I was trying to open the cap and it was boiling, spraying all around and the resevoir was almost empty. After the engine was cooled down I closed the cap again and drove home. All this time the temperature was always right and not overheating. What can this be?

Thank you

The fluid is supposed to be hot and boiling. Never do that again you can get hurt. The system is under pressure to prevent it from boiling. When you remove teh cap it explosivly boils and flys out at you.

You might just have low fluid. Top it off and you should be good to go.

But what about the leak? It was there before I open the cap. From where can it come?

Is there a hose nearby leaking? Is the neck of the radiator cracked?
