Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Never had this problem. Happened all of
the sudden.  No serious engine oil leaks. No  
engine overheating always happens as
soon as its turned off.

Have you checked for damage to the upper or lower radiator hose? You can get a split that will leak when the coolant is hot and then when the engine is cool that split will close up enough where it won't leak.
