02 Ram will become famous soon enough

Found this too. Exactly what's happening

1.) coolant leak - seems to be comming from the overflow cap as seen in vid

2.) took cap off of coolant resevoir and ran engin -The engine was still a little warm when I did this. After I started the engine the return tube imediately began squirting coolant back into the resevoir (thermistat open?). There was a little steam rising from the resevoir, but I didn't get any bubbles or gysers when I raced the engine.

3.) looked for leak - Traces around pass side end tank. Have not crawled under there yet
