Sounds like the normal broken upper radiator hose neck. With the age of your car I would consider yourself lucky it lasted this long. Very common and the only real true forget about it fix is to replace the complete radiator. I would use only a OEM unit myself.

I agree, replace the radiator. You can get an OEM radiator from this site - BEHR is the brand. This job is a diyer type of job - pretty straight forward/easy.
