On my 07 crew we screwed up an opened the seal cap on the radiator before opening the pressure cap on the bottle. The engine was cold at the time but it still proceeded to squirt some antifreeze out of the radiator, to the point where you can see the cores of the radiator. Question now is what is the best fix for this? Do I need to add antifreeze to the radiator? The bottle? Am I going to need to have the cooling system bled? I had a new radiator & cooling system flush not long ago. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong... but you cannot bleed a radiator. It can be flushed which is a different process. I've never heard of/encountered a cold motor shooting radiator coolant. You shouldn't have to flush the radiator unless there is a larger issue like cross contamination or the radiator is rusted/failing. I would check all hoses and the color of the coolant and go from there. You may just need to top it off.
