When the floater moves up and down the arm touches the resistance wire, modifying the voltage to the fuel gauge. If the contact between the arm and the resistance is not even, or the resistance itself is damaged, ...

There is no substitute for having the cooling system inspected, either by yourself or a mechanic, especially when a problem like this is so easy to trace (follow the leakage to its source). As you can attest to, throwing parts on without verifying if they really needed to be replaced can prove to be quite expensive. That said, here are some possible reasons ...
