Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.

Dear customer, there are several factors that can cause this problem, the most usual is a damaged radiator cap, but it is good to check if the problem is not the coolant circulation in the engine, for this we touch the upper radiator hose and the lower one, if one is colder than the other, we must check the thermostat and the coolant pump as they may be damaged.
