    avoid driving your car if overheat,check the hoses where is leaking and seek help to diagnose if you're not sure.

    i had the same problem and it was low coolant level. i first filled my radiator and then the extra coolant vessel upto the level. Now, it's been like a month and it's not having any more trouble. Good Luck!
