Talking cooling question

I have a new radiator (nissens), a fairly new thermostat from my mb dealership and a new cap. I have been running a little warm at stoplights, warmer than I am used to with my behr rad. I have noticed that the metal piece that the cap attaches to on the expansion tank is loose and seems to be leaking gradually. Is this what is causing the higher temps. It seems to be getting just above 100 degrees Celsius. When I am driving the engine temp is normal just above the 80 degree mark..

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here." Patrick Henry 1776
