You should have the cooling system pressure and leak checked to locate the leak in the cooling system and also check to see why your engine ran hotter than normal. This overheating inspection will locate the leak and then a quote can be done to repair the leak. You may have a radiator leaking at one of the hose connections or the radiator is leaking from a hole in it.
