How to wipe system cache partition on Nexus 6?

I’m having a problem with my Nexus 6 rebooting for no apparent reason. One possible solution that I’ve seen is to wipe the system cache partition. The only problem is that I’m not sure how to do this. Anyone know the process? I’d certainly like to try this before performing a factory reset, which is my next option.
This will remove any temporary files that may be causing the problem, but will not delete your files or settings.
1.With the phone powered off, press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power button at the same time until the device turns on.
You will see the word "Start" with an arrow around it.

2.Press the Volume Down button twice to highlight "Recovery mode"

3.Press the Power button to restart into Recovery mode.
You'll see an image of an Android robot with a red exclamation mark and the words "No command."

4.Holding the Power button, tap Volume Up once and then release the Power button.

5.Use the volume buttons to scroll to "wipe cache partition" and press the Power button to select it.

6."Reboot system now" will be highlighted, press the Power button to select it.,6720,9293
Thanks for the info, Sveta. My OTA update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow just arrived yesterday afternoon, so hopefully installing a new version of the OS will fix the issue. If not, I'll be putting your advice to the test!
