Hi waveridr! There are only a limited amount of areas where a hose leak will show up. If you get underneath while it's leaking you should be able to figure out fairly easily which kind of leak it is. A radiator failure can show up in a number of different ways from specific limited slow leaks to general leaks that seem to be sprouting from everywhere on the bottom of the radiator. Good luck!
