Why do our cars puke fluid out of the reservior and how can I keep it from happening?

Thanks. That's exactly the kind of info I was looking for.

I'd still like to know *why* the stock one pukes fluid...

Matt;

Mine started doing that this summer, after autocross runs. It culminated in blowing the PS hose that runs down the back side of the engine, on the firewall.

That hose, for some bizarre reason, is a two-piece. It is a *bitch* to remove from the car.

So....until the Liquid Wrench does its thing....Radiator Clamp City on the hose, to keep it from leaking.

I'm autocrossing the next two weekends. We'll find out how it goes then...

cause ya drive like a mad man and it was not designed to hold fluid under such conditions.
