Next is water pump. Take the cap off cold and start and allow to warm up. Watch to see if there is circulation. If not, either pump or a blockage somewhere else, like thermostat installed backward?


could one of these still be the problem even though its overflowing in the overflow and running out of it?


Now that could be a bad cap and yes to your question


really...what is a purpose of the radiator cap with the cooling besides just staying on the radiator


It is spring loaded, to release excess pressure in to overflow tank if weak releases too soon


ohhh...ok...so if that is the problem then the engine should stay cool and of coarse no longer overflow...am i correct?


Yes. If it's weak it's letting coolant out...= low coolant = overheating


ok i will try that and see what happens when i buy a cap for it...

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

It's an inexpensive try...hope that's all it is, good luck
