radiator hose leaking under high pressure

high pressure in the radiator hoses and ultimately leakage

I noticed extremely high pressure in radiator hoses immediately after changing cooling agent. In fact upper part of radiator collapsed within 1 week. Radiator master fixed it, I drove the car 2 week again with swollen hoses then the I again noticed leakage at the bottom of radiator (the bottom part collapsed partially). I replaced radiator cap twice, no effect. Motorist recommended to replace thermostat, no modification yet. Thereafter motorist confirmed that it only can because of motor head gasket. He fixed it, it took long time and surely it was cost. Then he said me that it was not because of head gasket because he did not noticed ant leakage or crack in the appropriate points of motor, everything was ideal. Again no effect. I got prepared to replace radiator itself with fans by thinking that there maybe some inconsistency (clogging, fouling etc.). But i was referred to Toyoto centre ( I talked to them before , they said that we can only change the cooling system completely). This time I found there somebody who I talked all the story and thanks to that guy who involved appropriate specialist and it was discovered that the high pressure in the radiator hoses was purely because of wrong selection of RADIATOR CUP. Instead of original parts I have been given unoriginal radiator cup that I spent thousands of US $ in order to solve the problem. In fact the cost of this part is only around 12-15 US $. This is because of numbers of companies produce poor quality auto parts that causes severe problems. Please note and try to use original parts instead of fake ones.
