I seem to always loose at gambling so we will just do a gentlemans bet. If you need a cap i can send you my oem one from the top reservoir. Just pay the shipping cost.

Okay went to pep boys and grabbed a cooling system pressure test kit. Before I did this I noticed that the mishi cap on the rad is 19lbs while the cap on the little resavoir is 15lbs. Could this be a problem? When I tested thru the rad cap it wouldn't let me go above 17lbs. It would just shoot out the rad cap area. Put the rad cap back on and tested thru the litte one at 15lbs and when I go above 15lbs I get those bubbles in the resavoir. So could the problem be that since there is 2 different lb caps it doesn't know which one to keep the pressure at.

The system will only hold as much pressure as the lowest psi cap. Not your problem cause mine are different and work fine.

Gotta be just trapped air. You can get a lot of that especially after installing a new radiator. It takes a while to get air out and coolant in all those cracks and crevices. Burp drink a beer and repeat many times. When you think you got it all start back at step one....Burp, beer, repeat!
