Your cooling system’s radiator cap serves two functions. It keeps coolant in the radiator, and it acts as a pressure relief valve. Your radiator cap releases heat when the pressure inside the system reaches the maximum level. It’s critical in preventing unnecessary engine damage from overheating.
The radiator cap should be inspected as part of your regular vehicle maintenance. If your engine has ever overheated, the pressure relief valve may be weak; a loss of cooling system pressure can cause improper coolant flow. If the cap isn’t sealing properly, or if the valve is weak, you’ll need radiator cap replacement.
