328 Coolant leak

I have a 328GTB and I think that when it gets a little hot coolant comes out of the overflow tube onto the driveway. I'm not sure if this could be an issue with the coolant tank cap or not. Any thoughts?

It sounds like the system has been overfilled.

328 leak

I had the same issue with my 328. It turned out to be the 21 year old cap.

Radiator air bleed

You can try bleeding the radiator.
Open the front bonnet and at the top of the rad (can't remember which side), there is a small thumbwheel tap.
With the car warmed up and engine off, unscrew the tap and bleed out the air until coolant is expelled. Shut the tap and you're good to go !

Best Regards,
