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.
Check valve in radiator cap malfunction, replace radiator cap.
If you have a threaded cap on your coolant reservoir that is your " radiator cap "
The radiator cap is on top of the radiator.
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 thread on cap on your engine coolant reservoir is your pressure cap / radiator cap ( 16 PSI ) on a 1996 Ford Taurus ( all engines )
No , the " radiator " cap / pressure cap is the thread on cap on the engine coolant reservoir
the radiator cap is on top of the radiator you idiots
The raiator is a type of system where all fluid is added to the reservoir instead of the radiator directly, look for the reservoir and you will have found your radiator cap.
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
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.
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 )
where is the radiator cap on a 2002 tribute
The thread on cap on your engine coolant reservoir is the pressure cap / radiator cap
No, it has no cap on radiator. You fill radiator thru the reservoir cap on the rt side of engine. Hope this helps.
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.
Coolant gets hot. Either there's a radiator leak, or you opened up the cap without letting it cool down.
It uses the cap on the coolant recovery tank as its "radiator cap".
The thread on cap on your engine coolant reservoir is the " radiator " cap
If you are getting exhaust smoke coming out of the radiator overflow, you need to replace the head gasket that seals the cylinder from the cylinder cap where your coolant runs through to cool the engine.
the overflow res. cap is the radiator cap on the 97 cavalier
