Forget the radiator tank. Your AC 'Condensate drain' hose is plugged up. This is a common problem. If you know where the hose comes out under the car you can ( carefully ) push a wire up it. If you're lucky it's plugged near the end by a mud-dauber wasp. If not, take it to your dealer and see if you can persuade the write-up guy to show you where the drain outlet is as a gesture of good faith. If they insist on charging you money, consider that when you buy your next car...

If you notice a 'sweet' smell, or windows tend to fog up, it's your cars heater core leaking. The heater core is located under the dash, passenger side, it's like a mini radiator. The cars cooling system directs hot coolant to it so you can have heat. To change it is an involved procedure.
If there is no evidence of the anti-freeze smell or windows fogging up, and u have been using your air conditioner, it would be a blockage in the drain tube from the a/c. The end of the tube is located under the car on the passenger side , behind the front wheel. The blockage needs to be removed, and will solve the problem. Let me know what u find Curt

Your heater core has corroded through. You need a new heater core. You may be able to get by temporarily, with bypassing the heater core hoses, located in the engine compartment. These hoses carry coolant heated from the engine, to the heater core. You remove the hoses from the core, and put a pipe in the middle, connecting the two hoses together using hose clamps.
Should there be a cool morning, or if you need the defroster, you won't have warm air. Just a temporary fix.
