If the radiator overflow tank is dripping water there are a few possibilities. It has a leak, you overfilled the system or the engine has a compression leak into the cooling system causing water to be pushed out of the cooling system. Is the car overheating? Does it have white smoke coming from the exhaust? Is there oil in the cooling water or water in the engine oil?
