When engine gets hot it tends to build some pressure in your cooling system; as such you notice the leak after this build up. A pro may perform a pressure test on the system and decides if you need a new rad. Good luck

Can you trace the leak area? I have had a few bad experiences woith the plastic drain plug BMW uses dopping coolant every now and then, but not a constant thing.

The first time this happened, my mechanic said it was the pressure cap, we replaced it and now the leak is coming from under the radiator. Do u think it might be the a plastic drain under the radiator?
