Yes the radiator does in a way have something to do with the ac. Depending on what kind of coolant you have for your ac you will either have a small radiator in front of the regular radiator or you may have a part of the regular radiator where the ac uses to cool things down. So if the freon came out of the radiator (or looked as if it was coming out of the radiator), check the hoses/metal tubing from your ac condenser to the radiator and you will see where it is leaking from. That leak will have to be fixed because if you are releasing freon to the environment you could get a very big fine.

There is a separate AC radiator in front of the real radiator, your AC radiator could just be leaking not your full radiator.

Ac radiator??? The ac and coolant systems are completely separate. The condensor is in front of the radiator.where is the fluid coming out of? The compressor or the condensor?

^ This. It sounds like you need to replace your condensor. Once that's done, you'll want to take it to a shop that does AC work, have it pulled into a vacuum and leak tested, you should have them give your compressor a check as well, since it's been sitting empty and therefore unlubricated for a while. After that, you might as well let them charge the system if it's holding.

Yea I agree let the shop evacuate and fill ur ac system...you didn't state it but rose lil cans of freon they sell at the auto parts stores are bad for your system...they contain sealant which could clog your entire system.
