The parts of the cap that are supposed to turn together have come loose. The bottom part is riding freely under the rim of the radiator fitting. You need to remove the whole thing and replace it, obviously. Some suggestions for removal include pushing down from the top of the cap HARD while you turn it counterclockwise. Gently bending up one edge of the top of the cap with a pair of plyers to see if you can see the locking pins under the outer edge of the radiator fitting and then prying one of them up...

Can't remove engine oil cap keeps turning

If your sure it is unscrewed, then pry it off or use a pair of pliers. Some of the click type caps sometimes have to be broken apart to get off.

Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 1999 (mixed coolant, oops) coolant and radio problem

I was driving a few minutes when all of a sudden my radio started changing channels on it's own. I tried all the buttons to keep it on my favorite channel, but it kept changing. Then I noticed the heater was pushing out more than 90 degrees out of the heater vents. I sat in a parking lot trying to figure out why. I read the manual that comes with the Ford Expedition 1999. Nothing was written about the radio changing except that it could be on auto change. Nope, that wasn't the problem. I thought maybe the sensor was going bad. Nope, that wasn't the problem either. Ugh! I remember (By accident, I added green coolant to the orange coolant).

So, I decided to check the coolant. WOW!!! it was low, very low, and now I remembered that I add the wrong coolant to the radiator about a week ago. Humm, Could the radio be getting hot from the mix and low coolant?

Well, I went to the store and bought two gallons of Prestone Dex-cool Ford WSS-M97B44-D, premixed 50/50 and two buckets. I went home to change the coolant.

Steps: before doing this wait for the truck to cool completely! Wear goggles.

1. Find the radiator drain, found on the passenger side of the lower part of the radiator. It has a white plastic bolt. You should be able to see it by pulling back the plastic flap by the front of the passenger wheel.

2. With the engine off and cooled, Unscrew the radiator cap a little to release the pressure inside and step back so you don't get hit with coolant. Once, you are sure the pressure has all been released, you can now unscrew it off all the way.

3. Place a bucket under the radiator drain.

4. Unscrew the radiator drain about half way. The coolant will start coming out right away. If you take the nut out all the way the coolant will pray.

5. Let the coolant drain out all the way until it no more is coming out.

6. Using a garden hose...fill the radiator reservoir with water. You will be doing this a few times until the radiator coolant is all out. You should be seeing clear water come out when the coolant is all removed from the radiator.

7. Once the radiator is completely cleaned out of all coolant. Screw the reservoir nut back in (closing the reservoir).

8. Fill the radiator with plain water from the hose.

9. Screw the radiator cap back on.

10. Run you truck for 10 minutes, until the engine warms up.

11. Turn off truck, and let cool all the way. About 15 minutes.

12. Open radiator cap again, using caution from #'s 1 and 2.

13. Unscrew the reservoir using caution from # 's 3 and 4. Let drain completely.

14. Repeat steps 3 through 13 a couple of times.
15. Do step # 7.

16. Now you can fill your radiator with two gallons of Prestone Dex-cool Ford WSS-M97B44-D, premixed 50/50.

17. Using caution. Start your engine, leaving the radiator cap on. Watch for the coolant to bubble under the cap. Note: you need to have you radio and heat on full blast....I know this sounds strange but it resets them while you are running the truck.

18. Slowly (using caution) release some of the air pressure. Pressure helps the coolant run through the radiator, but too much will crack the radiator reservoir (the white plastic container you put the coolant in).

19. Once you have noticed that there is no more bubbles (air pockets) coming from the radiator, screw the cap on completely.

20. Let the engine cool completely.

21. Following cautions #'s 3 and 4, check the coolant.d

22. If you need to add more coolant, now is a good time to do it. ONLY, fill to the recommended line or amount.

23. Screw cap back on tight.

24. You are done.

Hope this helps someone! Now my radio is working fine and my truck heater is working at its proper heating range.....That was my problem....

How do i put water for the radiator?

Does your car have a cap or a sealed unit? You don't want a sealed unit. You want to be able to check your water.Push down and Twist the cap off when cold, not hot, fill it up with coolant, 50/50 mix, and fill up the expansion tank. It says coolant on it. The car will balance itself out. Check the water in your battery while you are at it. It dries out too. Then check the brake fluid, power steering fluid, and oil. That should keep you busy next Saturday. Hope this helps.

How do I flush the radiator in a 2002 Buick Rendezvous. Need all the steps.

Well you can purchase a Prestone Flushing Kit, that includes a T valve with a cap that you can remove to connect a garden hose to, that you would install in line in one of heater hoses. Install the T valve, connect a garden hose to the T valve, remove the radiator cap and turn on the garden hose, once you have clear water coming out the radiator, turn off the hose and disconnect it and install the T valve cap. Then on the other tank that doesn't have the radiator cap, at the bottom of that tank, is a petcock, unscrew it to drain the radiator. Drain the water out and close the drain and refill the radiator.

How to change anti-freeze(coolant) on 2003 buick century

Hello, perform the following steps in this order:
NOTE: car should be cool, in park and on non sloped surface.
NEVER leave used coolant in an area where children or pets can gain access, Anti freeze has ethylene glycol which can be lethal to humans and pets. Used coolant should be immediately taken in a sealed container to a local state certified recycler for proper disposal.
1.Raise front end of car, and place one jack stand under frame of car on the inside of each front wheel.
2.Place a 2 gallon (low profile) bucket under the radiator drain plug. The drain plug will be located at the bottom of the radiator.
3.Unscrew the drain plug and let coolant drain into bucket. (It may be necessary to adjust bucket so no coolant leaks onto the ground.
4.After all coolant has drained from the radiator, tighten radiator drain plug finger tight, then 1/8-1/4 of a turn with a wrench.
5.Unscrew radiator cap and begin filling radiator using 50/50
premixed antifreeze solution.
6.Continue adding premixed solution until fluid is just below the top lip of radiator where cap fastens to.
7.Re attach radiator cap and lock into place.
8.Check radiator overflow reservoir and ensure coolant is between add and full, add coolant as required.
