Question about 1998 Honda Accord
You should not be losing water from your radiator cap. When the water in your system reaches such a pressure that it needs relief, it will normally flow into the overflow tank (the opposite occurs when the system is cold; water flows from the overflow tank into the radiator).
So, the first thing I would do is to get the proper cap for your radiator.
Second, I would check to make sure my cooling fan was running (I'm assuming that you lose water when the engine is hot).
Third, I would make sure to bleed the system if I had to add a significant amount of water (bleeder should be on top of the fitting that your top hose goes to; loosen and observe until water flows cleanly without bubbles, then close).
I have to think that your cap, new or not, is the problem.
Hope this helps you.
