Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek

I can not get the radiator cap off of my Pontiac Aztek 2001

I can not remove the radiator cap off of my Pontiac Aztek 2001 model. I have tried everything. I can not get the lip to line up with the slots in the cap. What can I do? It is running hot and I have to keep the heater running all the time. I have been adding antifreeze to the overflow to hopefully save it..
One more question:
I have a beeping noise that is coming from somewhere in the dash.. my brake light came on and now the beeping won't stop.. I had my brakes checked and they said they were fine but could not make the beeping stop. It is driving me crazy.

How do the power steering hoses go on on a 2001 Pontiac Aztek and why is there no circular motion inside the pump

The only squared thing on the pump is the "plastic"
fluid tank... Everything else about the design & function
is "circular".

There is ABSOLUTELY circular "MOTION" inside the PUMP...
PLEASE NOTE... there is a giant pulley on the front..
and the design of the pump is all about rotational force of the hydraulic pump (right THROUGH the middle).

High pressure to the high pressure...
(with a possible cooler option in the middle)
Low pressure back to the reservoir

No heat, have replace theromastate is working

sounds like you have an air lock in the system,when the car is cold remove the coolant cap,start the car and let it run with the defrost only on full blast this will allow any air in the cooling system to escape through the open radiator cap,and it will also spill some coolant that is normal,just refill when you are done.
