NEED HELP!!! Coolant coming out of radiator cap area?



#1
I just bought a 96 teg and the car overheats. At the beginning the coolant seemed to be disappearing but I had no idea where. I put in "green" coolant and noticed green over spray over the engine which seemed to originate from the radiator cap area. There was a puddle of coolant atop of the fans. So i replaced the radiator cap with a new one and all seemed ok for about 10 miles, no spray. I then drove the car again and then the car started to overheat again. Spray residue of green coolant again possibly comming from the radiator cap area. I have to constantly refill the radiator with coolant ( 3 full bottles so far). Do I have a closed thermostat? Bad radiator cap spout? Also the overfill level has not changed. No milky coolant in the radiator. Please Help! Thanks in advanced.

^ dam that's pretty good. I got my koyo radiator for the same price w/ life time warranty.
I was unaware that Koyo sold aluminum radiators with a lifetime warranty, or was the warranty through the vendor, and not the manufacturer?

A vendor in my area supports the lifetime warranty.

Well the car has 150K with the original radiator so I decided to replace the Radiator, Thermostat, and hoses. Due to time contraints I could order an all Aluminum and just replacing it with OEM Radiator from Orielly's.

I'm happy to report the leaking issue has stopped. I used a new OE radiator and cap. I also now have heat after changing the thermostat. Thanks everyone for your help. I used a DIY to change the radiator and thermostat found on another Integra forum though LOL.
