If that is the case, look to see where the leak is from. Sounds like it overheated, or one of the hoses broke. Also look at the radiator itself.

Water pump. which engine is in that ? Some can be difficult to see to detect, but coolant leaks are best found by applying some pressure to the filled system and removing parts till you find the leak. A water pump shaft seal and coolant hose connections from overdue hoses can be at fault. Last one I had, the pump shaft was creeping out. While we had it off, the timing chain was way baggy so we just did the whole front of the engine.

The guy had already replaced his radiator trying to fix it with one of those cheap aluminum replacement ones. But the dik paid 400 for it and then had 2 new problems. Be mindful of detecting the leak with the proper tester, go steady and let it get to a drip. then trace up to find it. you can get that tester at the parts store. and return it after.
