i would have said it was the head gasket thats gone but if theres no evidence of white scum on the filler capit its hard to know. it Could be leaking through the water pump. This happens when the pump bearing gets worn. It drips, but engine heat can make it hard to spot as it dries the leaking drips quickly.
