I don't think I'd RTV it, but I'd probably disassemble and take a look at it. Perhaps the gasket isn't in it's groove. Or maybe it's fine. But it would bother me to see that and I'd have to see for myself what the cause is. Good eye, BTW. A lot of p

You can loosen the pressure cap to slow the leak down, but keep an eye on the temp when you're doing that. Wintertime you should be OK.

A noise that loud, you should be able to feel with your hand the vibration from that squeaky joint. Have someone bounce the suspension while you touch each one until you find it.
