Pressure test the system. This will help you find the leak. Some auto parts stores loan out the tools to do this test.

Check the hose clamps for tightness. Especially if you got new hoses too. They may be "broke in" now and need a final tightening. Check the drain cock. Usually located on the left (driver's side) at the bottom. Make sure it's tight as well. Then finally, did you get a new radiator cap? If not, replace it. You should always replace the cap when buying a new radiator. HTH. -Jim
