If you are losing coolant you need to determine from where. Could be the radiator has a hole but more than probably a hose has sprung a leak. It could be that the themostat has gone bad and has decided to remain in the "closed" position which will cause overheating and coolant overflow. Fill the coolant recovery tank with anti-freeze and then start it up and see if you can see where the leak is...if no leak then it's the thermostat. Be careful about overheating and warping a head...that's a real problem. Drive it there, refilling the radiator with water if possible. Several shops in Melaque...get to there and ask around.
