i noticed i had a leak from my radiator last night, i dont know if its coming from the front or the rear, i was wondering if radiator stop leak is good to run in these trucks, and if so whats the best kind? after sitting for bout 40 min on a slight incline i had a spot bout 4 in long by 2 in wide, and i seen the bottom of radiator was covered, thanks for the help guys
okay now im confused, i went and looked and i took the cap off the over flow, and it still had pressure after setting for bout 12 hours? i loosened the cap and it hissed, now if i had a leak it wouldnt hold pressure would it?

Reason: Automerged Doublepost
If your radiator cap is bad it may not be holding the pressure right and forcing coolant through the weep hole on the water pump if it's holding to much pressure or out the cap itself if it's not holding enough pressure.
ya i pulled the cap off and it hissed for maybe a second, first time ive ever heard of such a thing, its not a major leak, i filled it bout 3 weeks ago and its dropped bout maybe 4 inches on the overflow
