    My 86 honda accord is boiling over into the expansion tank. Is it because the cap is not seating properly?:confused:

    If it is boiling out of the overflow tank, it could be signs of a bad headgasket.

    Or try your thermostat.

    Take the easiest approach first.

    or just try a new radiator cap, even easier than a thermostat.
