Replace the radiator cap. It's bad. Do it soon. No do it now. Be sure that you get the right cap. Not the generic on size fits all.

I agree but if problem continues after you replace the cap have that hose replaced. Might be a good time to also inspect the other hoses for the same. And as stated above do this ASAP.

The hose is weak- you need a newer, stronger, better one- that car is a 600cc?! Wild!


Hey J.B. The 660 cc is a 3 cylinder 12 valve engine that powers a multitude of vehicles here in the Philippines and in south east Asia. You can get the 5 speed, auto and 4X4 versions. 2 door or 4 door with a pickup bed. A full sized cabin like a min van. And since gas is $5.00 a gallon and the average wage is less than$10.00 A DAY. They've very popular. Google multicab for sale Philippines. I think I'm going to have one built next year. Fully loaded with power windows, steering, A/C 4X4 etc run about $5000.00. If I knew how I'd post a picture.
