My 87 Bronco 11 has a 2.9 V6 question when i shut of engine coolant starts coming out from the hose located on the radiator filler neck. At first i was wondering if it had a blowen head gaskets but when I take the radiator cap off while engine is running coolant does not come out I am baffled. I did buy a new rad cap but it still does it need help?

Jose,

There is a small rubber hose on the radiator filler neck that allows the system to relieve pressure to the overflow canister, mounted on the driver's side fender above the apron, right behind the left headlight. That should happen after shut down.

It sounds like your saying that your coolant isn't leaking and in at the proper level.

I forgot to mention that my 87 does not have a overflow cannister.
