Can I fix my radiator cap?

(1990 Toyota Camry)
Can I fix my new radiator cap. I did buy the correct cap.
The old cap works. The new cap looks the same as the old but new. The new cap will not allow the radiator to suck water back from the overflow bottle.
Selections only go back to 1990 and we cannot ask without clicking a selection. It's a 1985 Toyota corona st141.

Thanks for putting in the time to consider this problem guys! My girl friend who is the car owner insists on using the new cap as she says after some use it will start working. The question I'm asking is can I fix the new one? Using the new cap (a real pain) requires checking and topping up the radiator daily. It wasn't apparent to me until after considerable trial and error as to what the problem was.

can I fix the new one?
