Default Re: Help with radiator cap spray

I have a Motometer with wings below. The same thing happened to me on a hill with a long grade. After I reached the top, I pulled over to the side of the road and found that the cap was loose and I had to put in about a gallon of water.

We had gone to a car show in the morning. Before we left the show I check the water level in the radiator and it was ok. I used the wings to tighten the cap and I must not have tightened the cap properly. I had no problem driving on level roads, but about half way up the grade at 40 mph it started spraying water on the hood and windshield.

I bought a new seal and I'll make sure the cap is tight from now on.
