I know this is an old thread but when you say your cap O rings got toasted what do you mean? What were the symptoms? Reason for asking is that I had a new rad and tank(with cap) fitted in Feb this year (2012) and I have had the cap off several times since for routine fluid checks. Last week trying to get the cap off it seems to not want to come off for some reason. I am reluctant to force it until I garnish some opinion. Feels like it sticky. I should say its not leaking. The car has never overheated neither before or after the rad/tank replacement. Anyone else had this? Any thoughts?
