As NC's age, the factory plastic tank is a common failure point because the plastic gets brittle and cracks. Unlike the NA and NB cars where that just meant a leak, the NC relies on this tank to be a pressurized part of the cooling system, which means that as soon as a crack forms the system loses pressure and the engine overheats. Mazda made a huge design error by putting the radiator cap on the reservoir. By pressurizing this tank, it is guaranteed it will fail faster than normal. Eliminate this possibility and install a tank that will never fail!
