Question about 1988 Volvo 740
My sons 88 740 has started to leak oil from the oil cap. This has started to happen after he topped it up with oil. Is there a breather hole in the cap? Also is there a rubber type seal around the base?
Presuming the oil is coming from around the filler cap..theres usualy a rubber seal around the base, these can become brittle and break,sometimes quite a large piece (1/4 inch) can break off making a fair old leak from the oil splashing around from the cam, replace it with a NEW one, should cure problem
