                  Comments about CARQUEST Caps and Stats Radiator Cap:

                  I was amazed to learn that a radiator cap could cause an engine to overheat without letting any antifreeze/fluids from radiator. My car had been rebuilt with a new engine and turbo but was never the same until a few weeks ago when a mechanic told me to change the radiator cap and see if that worked. I had several mechanics look at my car but none could figure out why it was overheating while at a stand still or in town during hot weather, it hasn't done it since I put the new cap on, LOL, crazy!!!!!!

                      Hi Jacquie, glad to help you! The numbers on the radiator cap mean the pressure they will hold. They are designed to open if the system exceeds that pressure. For Ex: .9 is 13 PSI and a 1.1 bar is 16 PSI.

                  • Q:

                    the cap fits for 16 psi radiator. However, the maximum pressure is 18 psi. I also checked the autozone parts, their 16 psi cap has a maximum pressure of 16 psi. What's the difference? We know that high pressure insider the radiator may cause leaking.

                      A:

                      I'm happy to help, Qiao! The 16 psi ToughOne Radiator Cap (Part No. 10233) has an SAE pressure range of 14-18 psi. All radiator caps should actually have a pressure range where they begin to open a point where they are providing standard pressure relief and a cushion above the pressure to prevent boil over in an extreme situation.

                      If the other radiator cap has a maximum pressure of 16 psi it should be a 13-14 psi rated cap. A standard radiator pressure tester will show these ranges as well. A 15-16 psi cap should have a 14-18 psi range.

                  • Q:

                    Just bought a radiator for a 2005 Hyundai Elantra yesterday. The stock cap will not fit properly back into the radiator. The stant lever lock cap does not fit properly back into the radiator. Basically when you press the cap in and it locks in place with normal caps, the stock and the stant do not do that, you can just turn them right back off it looks and feels like they dont properly seal. It is a brand new radiator from advance down here. ANy guidance as to a cap that will fit would be greatly appreciated, I really do not want to pull this radiator back out because of an issue with a cap. Thank you.
