my radiator cap has started to leak. is there anything i can to about it? its not bad and the coolant level hasnt dropped noticeably but i dont want it to turn into some big deal.
when i changed my oil the other day i noticed some stains/ residue all over the intake tube, engine cover etc. so i started reading up on this. i'm a poor man and baby the shyte outta this truck, but today i got on the freeway and really got on it a few times and when i got home sure enough there was fresh stains and even wet spots. obviously leaking from the cap. i pushed down on the cap and fluid squirted out from under the sticker. truck is five years old and to my knowledge never had that cap replaced. so i guess its not even worth trying to bend this one? just get a new one right? i saw one by stant on rockauto for like $3. anybody using that one? what about the nismo caps? thanks in advance.If it is from the Metal Cap, and is 3 years old, I would replace it. Dealer; or Store will have them, but I found it a bit difficult to find in many stores. Our caps are infamous for leaking. Bend the Metal Tabs just a little bit to make for a tighter fit. Do not use a Cap with a Spring Loaded Center, as our Radiator and Overflow Bottles are all part of the Pressurized system. The Plastic Cap on the Plastic overflow Bottle is the Pressure Relief.
