Installed a new coolant cap..now I have a coolant leak. *UPDATE*
About 3 days ago i installed a new stant coolant cap. I replaced the old one for piece of mind. When unscrewing the old one I could barely hear any pressure releasing and I can definately hear the pressure realease with the new one so that leads me to believe the old one was bad. After the first day of being installed I came outside and noticed about a 4" x 4" area of coolant almost directly under the motor...maybe a little to the right. I crawled under the truck and checked and found nothing wet or running. I dont even notice any coolant out of the degas bottle, etc. Its been 2 days and I have been checking the truck every few hours and it doesnt leak a drop throughout the day or when its hot...only overnight. This leads me to believe its a "cold" leak from the system now having pressure where as it didnt before. Any input? I crawled under the truck today and it was dry but there appeared to be a small amount of white residue on the lower radiator hose where it goes back into the motor? maybe an o-ring? Im going to check again in the morning for any wet areas, specifically around that hose.
