Thanks Gojeep,

I checked everything and it is ok. If anything the coolant is at the add level. But it does have a plastic tank.

If it had boiled wouldn't the temp gauge have moved? The temp was sitting under 100, which is normal for the car. The oil pressure was just over 3.

It hasn't leaked again, so go figure? I will keep an eye on it though.

No it was definately from the jeep, cause in true Wen style, I crawled under and you could see it dripping down the bash plate.

Mine did that too but it took me months to find it. Started as a pin hole in the bottom hose that sprayed the fan and flicked coolant around the radiator cap. (I kept on replacing caps and wasting my money.) Then it really gave way and I finally found the buggered hose. After replacing it, the bash plate was always wet with coolant. Turns out the hose clamp on the bottom hose had a buggered worm drive and it was giving me a slow leak again.
Others may disagree but for me, any coolant leak under normal driving conditions means there's a leak to fix.
