Make sure that when you refill the coolant that you "burp" the air so there are no voids in the system... while filling gently squeeze and release the hose going to the engine ,,,, REPLACE CAP run the engine about 5 minutes then shut off/let it cool .. remove cap and refill the radiator after coolant level settled ....GET A NEW CAP AND BE SURE THE MATING SURFACE IS CLEAN
