Question about 1998 Lincoln Navigator
Are you talking about the hose that goes from the radiator to the overflow
tank? If so then a leaking hose means exactly that, there is a hole in
the hose. Sounds like the cap is doing what it is suppose to. The
coolant expands some throughout the cooling system usually because of
small air bubbles that just cant get out. Radiator caps are rated for a
certain pressure, when the pressure is overcome then fluid is allowed to
transfer from the radiator to the overflow, hence the name. If you have
coolant spilling out its either because you overfilled the overflow
tank or because you have the hose is
leaking. What did the temperature gauge read on the dash?
That could be from a bad cap/seal. Try bleeding it again, those systems hold alot of air due to the front coolant hoses being above the bleed screw. If you have air in the system it can push coolant out the overflow.
Also, maybe a stuck thermostat, check/replace that and the radiator cap.
Keep us updated.
