Radiator Replacement or Radiator Hose Replacement?

Last week my check engine light came on in my 99 Expedition 5.4 Eddie Bauer. Two days later I noticed my coolant leaking a little bit, drops here and there. Now here we are this week and the truck will hold no coolant. It drains out as soon as I pour it in. Vehicle does not have to be running. Currently unable to get a look under the truck, was wondering if anyone experienced the same thing or had knowledge of it happening to someone else. Thanks in advance!!

We really can't offer any advice if you can't tell us where the coolant is leaking out from.

Alloro-As far as I can tell it is leaking from the left and rights side of the vehicle when facing the front. Will not be able to properly get into the vehicle until thursday

So wherever the leak is coming from, it sounds like it's running down to the bottom of the radiator and onto the radiator support. From there it's spreading across to both sides. If it were alive I'd say it was messin' with you.

I'd say the same thing. So with your experience would you say it would most likely be the radiator or a hose? I know it's not a clear cut answer, just want to know what someone else is thinking.

From what you've posted I'd start checking the radiator itself.
