He used a hammer to take parts off. Do you think something came loose? Or

something was probably loose already. Find out where the leak is and repair.

I wonder if your brother in law missed with the hammer and knocked a hole in the radiator. Never ever let your brother in law work on your vehicle, NEVER.
