I have owned the car for a couple of months and don't know much about this car and it would be nice to find a diagram of the whole engine. Can someone give me some adivdce please.
Overheating an all alloy engine is not a good thing.

Sounds like you need a genuine OEM radiator cap. Don't buy a genric 3rd party American automotive retailer version made in China. Not only do they fial, they are set at the wrong pressure.

Easy to check.

How are your timing chain guides?
