View Full Version : Radiator cap

02-04-2005, 10:35 PM
the radiator started boiling one day so I checked in here to see what the problem was. I was told to get a new cap , I bought a seemingly cheap cap from autozone , now I go down the highway and the temp gauge starts to climb but never goes near the red, if I turn the heater on it goes back to normal. I was wondering if this cap will work? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=42612&item=7951849860&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

the type I got from autozone was the type F in that ebay listing, its for 91 GTS , ty for any help

That cap should do the trick . I am leaning towards maybe you have a blocked radiator or partialy blocked radiator

A friend of mine had a problem similar to that. What he did was change the vacum hoses on the radiator, because it was clog up, on every single wire. His car kept heating up but the heater was still running good.

A radiator cap isn't going to fix your over heating problem...
