The minute i went to fill antifreeze reservoir the fluid leaked out under my car toward the passenger door/tire area. My 2002 Ford explorer is not running hot. Any ideas what is leaking?

Look to see where it came from, heater hoses, look on the engine itself, radiator, cracked reservoir...

Check and see if the hose is hooked up to the reservoir...

Check the reservoir for a crack. Also, there is a hose which runs from the reservoir to the radiator on the bottom. Check for cracks or broken. On my 2003 there is no clamp on the hose at the bottom of the reservoir - it's held on by pressure/friction alone.
