intermittent coolant leak
Friday, the Ram puked about a quart of antifreeze all over the drive. Relatively short drive, maybe 9 miles, from sitting overnight. Antifreeze was all over the engine bay and dripping out the bottom.
Cleaned things up, and restarted to find like. Did not leak. Drove it 100 miles that day, and did not leak another drop.
Saturday morning it pukes some again - much less - drive was shorter - but still has anti-freeze all over the engine bay.
Today, started it up, no leaking at first. Leaked some later one. Only seems to leak when it's "half-warm" and doesn't leak for a long period of time before "sealing" and being fine the rest of the day.
Waterpump? I can't find anything else. Hoses are new, no visible signs of radiator leakage, and most of the fluid is being blown by the fan up and over the engine, toward the drivers side, coating the upper radiator hose (new) fuse box, and all drivers side battery in coolant spray.
Thanks for the help.
