Go to a radiator specialist shop
take the internal diameter or the hole and the depth to the seat for the cap and match those with a cap catalogue at the radiator specialist shop
for example :- hole diameter is 1 1/2 "" and depth is 3/4 inches any cap with those dimensions will fit

Just got a 96 Corolla and over heated. Noticed brown water coming out from under it. And when opened the radiator cap. Found brown sludge in it. Don't knw what to do

Sounds and looks like the radiator is corroded internally. My guess is that it has been leaking for a while and re-filled with water only and no anti-freeze to help keep it clean. Pull the bottom hose off the radiator and try to flush it out with a hose and see what you get.

My van keeps heetin up and pushin water back into the coolant tank

Hi... you are going to have to do some more checking. After the engine is cooled down open the radiator cap, look for goo on the bottom of the cap. Look for oil or goo in the coolant.

What you PROBABLY have is a bad head gasket and the pressure is pushing the coolant out of the engine...

I wish I had better news...

Heating has stoped working and there is a little water in the oil, think radiator may be leaking, does my car just need a new rad

water in the oil will turn the oil brown like mud,is that what you see? if so,then you have a blown head gasket,do not run motor if this is the case as the motor wiil spin a crank bearing or lock up.are you sure about the water in the oil? look for real brown oil just like mud with bubbles on the oil dipstick. if the heats stopped working it may be because the radiator's low on fluid. look in the radiator for low coolant,if you can't see the coolant when you remove the radiator cap,it's low. with engine cool,remove the radiator cap 1st then start the engine. do you see steam and fluid blowing up frome the radiator? if so,you have a blown head gasket in the motor. head gaskets can blow and leak water into the oil or oil into the radiator. or blow and leak into the exhaust sysytem and blow coolant out of the tail pipe. three different ways for a head gasket to blow. usually the head gasket only blows when the engine has been run really hot!!! hope this helps.thank you for choosing fixya .com

Oil has a light brown color

Most oils are light brown in color. If it does not look normal check the oil cap and the radiator cap when it is cool. . Turn it over after you take it off and look at it. Does it look like there is water in it? If so, you could have a blown head gasket.

Hi my name is Heath. I have a 1990 Ford Bronco. The other day after i drove it home, I pulled in the driveway and turned the engine off. I got out and heard a hiss so i opened up the hood and I saw brown...

A flush and a thermostat is never a bad idea, but it sound like your radiator cap is worn out, not holding pressure, replace it, should have a 16 lbs rating radiator cap.

replacing the head gasket sometimes works - sometimes sadly - the head itself is cracked - and it is about 80.00 or so to have the head checked. One way to find out is to be sure to warm the car - - remove the radiator cap and then top off the motor - look for a brown sludge - if there - again you're back to quite possibly head problems] if no VERY brown and thick like syrup liquid then close the system - be sure to get some fairly thick gloves to do this - the drive the car as always only checking the level in the radiator itself - when you arrive to your destination each time you move the car from point to point.

If the above looks like too much - please take it to a radiator shop and let them check it - or a mechanic that you trust.

Brown sludge in water reservoir

i would guess that it's your head gasket, are you getting any creamy residue on the bottom of your oil cap too, may be worth having a compression test done on your engine first
