coolant leakage (*%#*!!)

When my car gets hot enough, coolant leaks from beneath the expansion
tank cap. My techs (I'm beginning to suspect a strong primate
connection) installed a new cap.
The question: If the oil and coolant guages are within normal
boundaries, and no idiot lights are lit, does the abovementioned puking
indicate the expansion tank-cap interface, or is the cap designed to
bleed off coolant if a problem exists elsewhere?
P. S. Despite the fact that the car uses no oil (perphaps from a
life-long diet of Mobil 1 - but that's another thread we probably don't
want to revive) my supply of emotional straws is getting low. I've
treated the car to the best maintenance, parts replacement and care
possible (including annual flushing of coolant) during its 11ish years
with me, the end may be nigh- unless you gentlemen come to the rescue
by telling me the coolant issue is easy and inexpensive.
