Hard water, and calcium can build up insite the hoses and get released in chungs during the flush process. These pieces can get caught in the thermostat and cause it to fail. You can try removing the thermostat or just replace it as it is an in-expensive part. You might consider re-flushing the radiator as more calcium might hit the thermostat after replacing it.

Make sure the radiator is full of water, don't just check the overflow tank, but do make sure the car is cold before removing the radiator cap. Also the thermostat could be frozen closed or you could have a failed water pump. Try replacing the thermostat and flushing the cooling system first. Don't forget to buy a thermostat gasket when purchasing the thermostat.

1997 Ford Taurus why does radiator cap keep going bad?

Your radiator cap is made of metal and rubber. The metal and rubber are reacting to the rust in your radiator. Rust and oxidation in your radiator will deteriorate the cap at an accelerated rate. I suggest flushing the cooling system and replacing the coolant and cap. If it persists after that you might have a heat problem that is cooking the rubber right off the radiator cap. If this is the case you should check your thermostat and heating Coil.
