Coolant Spraying out from small leak

When I got home last night I noticed smoke/steam coming out from under the hood, and that sound of coolant splashing on the ground (same symptoms when the upper radiator hose had a hole in it). I could see where the coolant was spraying out , on the radiator just below where the hose connects on the passenger side near the battery. There are three tiny slits in the area on the side that looks like a black box. Any way to fix this aside from a new radiator? I'm no expert so excuse my lack of terms haha

If it is not the hose, you need a new radiator. I recommend an all-metal unit from DPG offroad or RadiatorBarn.com. Both should get you a much better radiator than stock for ~$230 shipped or less.
