96 xj radiator

So, last weekend I changed out the radiator in my xj. New hoses and new cap were also put on. On the test run everything seemed great except fluid was pushing from under the cap. Me and the guy at autozone figured the cap was faulty and exchanged it. We both looked for any strange nicks or deformations on the neck and didn't find any. Next day the new cap did the same thing. Went back and they said to pull the radiator and they'd warranty it. That was on Tuesday morning. That afternoon I changed out the new cap for my old one left over from the radiator swap. It held pressure until this morning and then it started leaking. My questions are: has anyone else ever had this problem and what was the solution? Who has the best deals on all metal radiators? I'm not spending an hour to put another plastic neck radiator in that might fail the same way. Thanks!
