Dude you TOTALLY deserved it!!! You're not supposed to unscrew the cap to a radiator right after it has over-heated for that exact reason. It also states it on the cap itself or right next to the cap directly on top of the radiator for idiots like you. If you can't read because you're illiterate then refer to the common knowledge that liquid evaporates when heated up and the steam that is created in the process then pressurizes because it's trapped in a container and is violently released when that container is opened. If you don't know about cars over-heating, can't read, and don't have common knowledge then you shouldn't be fucking around in such a harmful situation regardless of your intentions. So once again-you TOTALLY deserved it. Deuche bag.

27- glad to know theres some people out there who aren't complete dumb fucks, also you can take a shirt off and wrap it around the cap and barely crack it letting out steam and very little fluid onto the shirt and not you.

27, the problem is, if the OP's illiterate then your warning/teaching would be in vain and would probably be repeated again some other time thinking "maybe this time will be different o.o" but its good warning for people who knows jack shiz about how to handle car problems (like me).

27, you were right about everything car-related, but why the hell did you call him a douche bag? Why the fuck has this lately become a swear word that fits everything? "Look, that guy tripped, what a douchebag" "Haha, that guy entered the wrong password, what a douchebag" How does that even make sense? Also, I don't think FMLs where the OP is at FAULT should automatically be a YDI. Because he knows nothing about cars, he deserves getting burned? uh, yeah, great logic.

104. - in case the OP lacked knowledge your average 8 year olds have he should have read the clear warning on the cap. instead he was so wraped up in trying to be a hero, he possibly damaged the car more THEN has the audacity to expect a thank you when he should be apologizing? I think 27 was being mild with the name calling

Trying to help an old lady is "trying to be a hero"? He was trying to help, and fucked up- that happens, we're all human. No need to be such a snob about it.

27 is totally right, and my guess is that the old lady asked for help in the hopes of finding someone dumb enough to remove the cap while the engine is still hot. she probably got a good laugh out of it

TRYING to help is one thing but if you are ignorant enough not to know that unscrewing the radiator cap on a hot engine is a horrible idea then what exactly were you planning to do to help her? Op obviously knows nothing about cars and can't read warning labels so I'm guessing he should probably just leave it alone.

He's a douche because he's messing around with something he obviously knows nothing about. Would you try to remove a tumor from someone's chest without any medical knowledge? It doesn't matter if he's trying to help. When you're dealing with cars, especially when it's not yours, know what you're doing or you can hurt yourself or someone else.

yea that is always a don't. for future reference before touching the cap check the hose that is connected to it , if it's hot wait, if it's stiff(non sexual ) then there is pressure so also wait till there is neither to unscrew cap.

@rooneyroo: yep, facepalm is right. The radiator isn't the coolant tank... The radiator is the RADIATOR. You do realize that the antifreeze doesn't just sit in the radiator, right? there's this thing under the hood called the coolant reservoir where the majority of the antifreeze sits when the engine isn't hot, and can be just as dangerous to open with a hour engine as the radiator itself.

fluids can go in the radiator instead of their own tank. it depends on the car. what you do is pop the hood once it stops smoking (protecting yourself with a towel) and give the cap a quarter screw so it can release steam and pressure. once it cools down fully you remove the cap. then you wait for it to cool before adding any fluids or you could crack the radiator.

#63. 90% of the female population doesn't know anything about cars. just because you are a rare percent doesn't mean you should get your panties in a wad because she said that. Im part of that 30% of males that don't know anything about cars. I just drive em :D
