Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency
I was driving home one day and steam started pouring from under my hood and my engine was overheating. I was able to get it home and check it out. I found there was a leak at the top passenger side of my radiator, the antifreeze was pouring out. So I got some stop leak, put it in, and it stopped the leak somewhat, however there was still antifreeze on that side of the car, just not as much. The engine was not overheating now. So I figured the leak was just too big and the stop leak couldn't fix it all the way. So I took it in to a mechanic and had them replace the radiator. They said they flushed it and ran it and everything was fine. So I drove it to work the next day, and when I got there, there was antifreeze on the Driver's side of the car near the battery this time. The car wasn't overheating, but still there was antifreeze. So my question then is what could it be, if after replacing the radiator, it leaks from the other side now? It doesn't seem like it could be the same problem, because of the change in the leak.
It could be just overflow

It could be antifreeze that was on the frame after changing the radiator the best way to tell is run car through a car that has the bottom wash or in a self wash and on... rinse... spray the area around radiator ...then check again later for antifreeze on ground
