Leaky Rad Cap, replacec with Stant?
 
Has anyone ever used Stant products? I can get a replacement radiator cap for 6.00 as opposed to the OEM price of $28+.

It is rated at 18 psi, should I just grab this or spring for the Mopar?

I got a feeling the quality is prob better since my cap is OEM and is leaking @88K.

Great good to know. I'll be picking one up today. It redic how the OEM cap is over $28 and prob not as good. Do you have the stant with that pressure relief on the top?

its ok I didn't see the need for a pressure relief valve. Just seems like one more thing to fail IMO

Hey guys. Chrysler has replaced our original radiator caps with a new one. It is Part# 4596198. It is round in design. IT DOES NOT LEAK!!!!!! BT is in the process of making up a billet cover for the new round cap. Should be available mid January. With regards to the Stant caps, I also put on the regular stant oem replacement cap that is 16psi cap. They don't make a 17psi replacement cap. In theory the pressure release would take more pressure to release with the 18psi version, but I spoke with the head guy at Stant and he insisted that I use the 16psi version. This also has not leaked. He stated better spring and gasket in their product over the oem one. About $6 at Pep Boys. This way you can use your existing BT cover. If you don't have the BT cover, then I would simply get the new Chrysler cap. It is black and decent looking.

The OEM Chrysler parts are so overpriced or I would have got it. This isint a 911 here. Then again I do have a MB transmission.
