Anyone know what pressure rating the radiator cap should be on an Evo 1?

I replaced mine some time ago (it was leaking), with a non Mitsubishi item. The pressure rating on my new one is 1.1 bar, but it seems to be leaking.

Is it the pressure rating that's causing it to leak, or is it just knackered?

Any info appreciated.

The stock cap is rated at 0.9 bar. Unfortunately, I think your problem is a blown head gasket - the intake charge is pressurising the cooling system.

I agree Mr W.
I had the same problem on my Lotus.

Looks like more work than replacing the cap I'm afraid http://www.ltregister.force9.co.uk/graphics/Sad.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| middle >

****! I hope not!!!!!!!!!!!

There's no oil in the water and there's no water in the oil.

I've had a good look at the radiator cap and it doesn't look too healthy.

Car is running fine.

Any more suggestions?
