Either the cap is defective or too much pressure is building up in the system. I would replace the cap is it does not appear to be overheating. answer you have a defective radiator cap replace with a new one with same pressure rating as old one

A radiator cap would not cause a leak! However, if the radiator cap is holding pressure, other weak parts could signal issues in need of attention.

there is no real radiator cap. On the left side of engine compartment there is a coolant jug. This where you would add coolant to radiator.

not all vehicles have a rdiator cap. some newer ones ,have the coolant added thru the overflow bottle. if the radiator cap cannot be seen on the radiator it doesnt have one

Hey Willie==If it comes out the cap and not the overflow jug, the cap is faulty plus what is causing it to get hot. 'Check the fans for proper operation. If it isn't smoking white smoke, it probably isn't the head gaskets. A stuck thermostat will also cause it ot overheat. If all else fails, take it to a radiator shop and have the radiator flow tested. GoodluckJoe

The radiator cap is located on top of the radiator.

A lot of vehicles don't have the radiator cap on the radiator , they use a thread on style cap on the engine coolant reservoir ( that is the pressure cap / radiator cap )

The correct radiator cap is determined by the amount of pressure it is designed to hold, not temperature. The standard radiator cap for that Olds is probably a 15 or 16 pound cap. The correct temperature of the engine would be determined by the thermostat which would be 195 degrees F.

where is the radiator cap on a 2002 tribute

blown head gasket. the easiest way to tell is to open the radiator cap while the cars running BUT BE CAREFUL! if theres antifreeze in there it will spray and burn you! but if you have a blown head gasket when you open the throttle the same white smoke will blow out of the radiator cap. white smoke is a sign of a blown head gasket though.

It would be on the coolant reservoir.
