For some reason, the radiator on a 5 speed manual transmission is different than the automatic. As a result, this cap WILL NOT fit a car with a manual transmission. This cap has a center post which is too tall to allow it to close on the radiator.

This is an obscure fact which even most parts sales associates do not know. Also the stores for some reason don't carry the cap for a 5 speed... only the automatic transmission.

I had to go to an import auto parts place to find a cap which would work on a 5 speed. I'm sure this cap works fine on an automatic, but just be aware that if you own a 5 speed Mazda protege, you will not be able to use this radiator cap.

          Easy to install on a 1992 Nissan Sentra XE 1.6L. Make sure the car is cold when install this radiator cap otherwise you may cause coolant to spray everywhere when removing the radiator cap. Overall I would recommend and buy another one if needed.

                seems to fit good, even though the spring part looks different that the original, it does seem to hold a good seal.

                        Hi Fred, I'm glad to assist you. This CARQUEST or Stant Radiator Cap (Part No. 10227) does not work fine on your 433698 radiator. Instead please check the CARQUEST or Stant Radiator Cap (Part No. 10229) which would be the ideal part for your application.

                        I'm happy to help, Another1! This ToughOne Radiator Cap (Part No. 10227) is intended for use on a radiator only. This is not the same type of cap found on a power steering pump. Many power steering pump caps include a dipstick to check the fluid level in the pump.

                        If you could please provide the year, make, model and engine size of your vehicle, we can better assist you with locating a replacement power steering cap.
