Question about Cars & Trucks
Could be a head gasket blown, warped or cracked and allowing compression gases from the engine into the cooling system pressuring it up causing this problem. Have it checked out by a competent shop to be sure.

SOURCE: Over heating/ loss of coolent
If you are not loosing coolant on the ground. You may have a problem of a bad intake manifold gasket or worst a bad head gasket. The two things to look at are coolant in your oil, manifold gasket. Coolant out the exhaust, head gasket.

I will agree with your uncle and say that you should check the water pump. Start the vehicle and look at the water pump. Most water pumps have a "weep hole". If there is coolant coming out of this hole the water pump is not working properly. If not, and if the temperature has been running normally, you may have fixed the problem when you replaced the cap, if the water pump is good and the temp has been running high, then check the thermostat. Hope this helps and good luck.

that code can mean s few things, mine was the camshaft sensor, replaced it for about 50 bucks (part) all better. It is a huge pain to get to though.

Check to see if you have flow through the entire radiator.If part of the radiator core is cool to the touch when the engine is at operating temp, this indicates restricted radiator flow. If the entire radiator core is not allowing water to flow through, cooling will not be at all efficient. Also a good idea would be to purchase a block tester. available at napa and other reputable parts houses for around thirty dollars. You remove a small amount of coolant, and put the tool in the radiator, or pressure tank opening. If there are any combustable gasses present, i'e' exhaust, this would indicate a head gasket breech, (or maybe worse) and would indicate that it's time to stop looking for a simple problems, and get proffessional help. Good luck to you!
