First find exactly where the water comes from.
broken hose or hole in radiator - if no leaks here then :-
broken / loose drive belt to water pump - sign is no heat to internal heater
thermostat stuck - heats up and overheats quickly. water from exits rad cap area
also check radiator cap - should be sprung to contain water under pressure, usually these are very reliable
check oil filler cap [inside of] - should be oily and grey/black If it has a covering of what looks like soft brown aireated jelly then possibly hear gasket or other internal engine leak between water & oil ways. The excess pressure from engine will force water out of rad cap area . A compression test with variable readings for between cylinders will confirm this. Hope its not this. It's expensive

If your radiator is clean inside and you water flows and circulates with the radiator cap then it is OK. The leak is probably coming from the intake area or the head gasket. You could try some BARS leak that you can get at your auto parts store and see if it seal the leak. You pour it into the radiator when it is cool. You may have to drain some coolant. There is a drain plug on the bottom of the radiator that twist in the wrong direction to open it. If it does not open don't force it. Try the other way. It should come undone. Wait until it is cool.
