Okay here is the easiest way to get that cap off ,,,,,Go to the nearest parts store and get a quart of oil and ask them to come out and show you how tpoget that cap off,,you might need to get a new one.And to stop that leak,,,,,,if it is a rear main seal just betweem the motor and trans is where it would leak. Lucas stop leak for motors I used it and it works.
REMOVE THE CAP FROM THE RESIVOR AND YOU WILL SEE A STICK GAUGE AS PART OF THE CAP, WIPE CLEAN AND LOOK AT THE GAUGING ON THE STICK TO SEE WHERE THE FULL MARK IS, ALSO MAKE SURE ENGINE IS WARM, PUT CAP ON AND THEN REMOVE AND SEE WHERE THE OIL GOES ON THE STICK IF LOW ADD AS NEEDED AND CHECK AGAIN, THEN START ENGINE AND TURN WHEEL TO LEFT AND FULL RIGHT TURNS AND THEN BACK TO STRAIGHT, SHUT MOTOR DOWN AND CHECK THE LEVEL AGAIN IS STILL LOW ADD AGAIN, HOPE THIS HELPS.
If you have any other fittings on the valve cover (pcv valve, breather tube etc) you can put a hose into the valve cover through that hole and fill it. (slowly...most have baffles inside). I have seen engines filled through the dipstick tube also (takes forever though). Once you get oil in there, bring it to a shop and have someone show you how to get the fill cap off so it is easier next time.
