Oil Cap Spins and Won't Come Off

Took my van in for service and they couldn't get the oil cap off because it spins when they turn it, like it's stripped or something. Not sure what to do other than probably pay a fortune to get it fixed by a dealer service agent. Any suggestions?

Look closer I bet it says 25 inch pounds, little over 2 foot pounds. Replace the oring and just snug it.

Sounds like the dealer has more work to do on the EVAP System. Smoke test the system and check Tech Service Bulletins. You could go to a local garage,it would be cheaper.

hi something not right for a start the cam caps sit at the end of the head on the right hand side of the head and are always made of a metal due the the heat from the engine so you could never have a plastic cam cap due to heat it would just melt ? i advise you to take it to another garage for a second look

How to check trans oil level and condition

  • There is a 8mm or 10mm plug on the back of the transmission (underneath the car) When you pull that plug if fluid comes out then it it full. If not you add fluid until it just barely comes out that hole and then the transmission is full.
  • Now you add fluid from the top of the transmission. You have to look way down in the engine bay on top of the transmission for a red or black cap. It may say "do not open" or "open by a technician only." Take and pull that cap off and this is the fill spout for the transmission. It's a fill only, not a check. Add from this spout until it comes out that little plug on the back of the transmission.
  • You will hear people call this a "sealed" transmission of "non-serviceable." Now you can tell them rubbish lol.
  • To check the condition you can look to see if it is getting black or smells burnt. After 50,000 miles the fluid needs flushed and after 100,000 miles you need to change the filter and gasket for the transmission.

My wv crafter using engine oil 1lt / 500 km is its normal or not what im can do to using less oil

You could ring Volkswagen service but using 1lt per 500 km is extremely excessive!

If your Van is old, you could be having problem with your engine cylinders oil rings being worn or broken (obvious Black smoke and oily exhaust pipe).

Check the followings as your Van could be losing oil from:
- Oil refill cap, dipstick cap
- Head oil seals
- Engine oil sump gasket or emptying plug at the bottom
- Engine gaskets
- Oil engine rubber seals
Look for oil leaks/stains under your van: this would be a good indication of seals leak.

Take your care to a motor mechanic before it gets worst!

Hope the information is of some assistance.

Where is the oil filter for a 2005 chevy cavalier located

ECOTec 2.4 Liter engine (and all ECOTec engine blocks in 4 cylinder sizes) have a cartridge type oil filter housing on the front of the block, driver's side of the vehicle.

The cap must be removed with a wrench, and the filter pulled out, then the new one put in. Now is usually a good time to replace the O-ring on the cap.

Was driving and car just shutoff and won't restart, motor just spins fast

timing belt or chain and or timing gears have failed... please rate my help thanks, if you can and if the vehicle has a accessible distributor cap, remove the cap and note if the rotor spins, no spin when you crank over engine then this will confirm timing gear issue. also you can confirm it sometimes by removing oil filler cap on engine valve cover and looking to see any valve train movement...please rate my help, thanks

I'm almost embarassed to ask this question. I have a 1999 Chrysler 300M and it needs a quart of oil. I can't get the oil cap off - it just spins around freely. No matter how hard I press down on the cap...

well if you have no success taking the cap off and you really need the oil there is another way to put the oil in your car at least until you get th cap fix. thake the dipstick out of the tube and put a funnel in it and ad the oil tha way. at least you have the oil in the car and your not chancing running the engine.
