Victor, follow the small hose that runs from the reservoir back to the radiator and you should see the cap. It is located on the upper left of the radiator.

Look for the engine coolant tank reservoir, the cap should say something about PSI. That is the radiator cap.

The coolant must operate under pressure to raise its boiling point (so it won't turn to steam.)

Replace the radiator cap with a new one.

Spewing coolant


You could have a pin hole in your hose or in your radiator.

Running hot


Remove thermostat and test it by dipping it in cold water ib an open pot. Heat the water on the stove while observing the thermostat. It shold opel just before the water boils. If it does check the radiator itself for clogging. Also fluch the engine water galleries.

Pushing anti-freeze out the resevoir. Changed water pump, thermostat. Temp. gauge does not indicate overheating. Fans seem to be working OK.


Try replacing the radiator cap. A weak cap will allow coolant to leave the radiator and go thru the overflow tube to the reservoir.

Radiator overflow steaming when driving 15 to 20 mile distance, don't have a manual to see if there is another location to put in radiator fluid or water, temp is normal, and nothing seems to be leaking,...


Yes, the cap could be it. But, I would also check the strength and concentration of the antifreeze/coolant to make sure it's 50/50.

Also, check that the fan is coming on for the radiator, even though it may seem to not be overheating.

Good luck on this repair.

What would cause my 2002 zx2 to overheat ?


Faulty thermostat, failed water pump, inoperable radiator fan, low coolant due to leak, faulty radiator cap, leaking head gasket, low oil, major exhaust leak near front, exhaust blockage, or incorrect ignition timing. If there is crust around radiator cap, cap is leaking. How long does it take to overheat? If it runs smoothly when cool, and all fluids are at correct levels, you can rule our head gasket, radiator cap, and ignition timing. If it overheats very quickly and fluids are correct, it is probably thermostat or water pump. If it seems to do better at higher speeds, it is probably radiator fan. You can check this by allowing vehicle to run in Park with hood open. Monitor engine temp on dash. When it is at or slightly above normal running temp, radiator fan should come on. Also note exhaust sound. If it seems loud and overheats gradually, you may have a leak before the converter. If the exhaust sounds quiet, but exhaust manifold is getting extremely hot (may glow red), there is probably a blockage. There will also be OK starting and idle but poor acceleration if exhaust is partly blocked.

Radiator cap came off and lost alot of coolant. cap seems fine and assume was not on correctly. sound like any other issue? I alos need to add more coolant. Do so via the radiator or tank?


Cap cannot come off unless it was left loose. (most are a bit difficult even when removing on purpose) Refill with 50/50 mix right into the radiator while running, then re-fill bottle after closing cap. As always, don't open cap when radiator is hot.
