Where is it leaking from? If the overflow tank is filling up and then overflowing that would be from over filling the coolant. Once the coolant level was reduced to the correct level the "leaking" would stop. The coolant can get quite hot after the engine is shut off causing a lot of pressure. The leak could be from a loose radiator hose clamp or other spot.
