You said, "Hot coolant misting out of the upper radiator hose mount." You definitely have a leak. When you say hose mount, do you mean the upper hose itself, between the hose and mount tube, or the mount tube to the radiator? Check to be sure your fan is working and your

thermostat is working. If either of those is not, the pressure can exceed normal range and blow out your coolant. The thermostat is more likely to be the culprit of the two, but long stretches of construction back up stop and go traffic can bring the problem to the point you experienced either way. A little side note - sometimes if most of the coolant is blown out the temperature gauge will no longer give you a true reading, so do not put off remedying the source of the problem or you may unintentionally smoke your engine.
