Yes, it must vent through the cap, if you take the cap off while its running, it shouldn't effect how the car runs, but could set off a sensor and turn on the check engine light.

What type of trans. fluid does it take and how do i know when its full

Transmission Fluid Fluid Level Checking & Filling To Check:
  1. Connect a scan tool to the vehicle to read ATF temperature. ATF checking temperature should be 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C).
  2. Start the engine.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  5. Allow the ATF temperature to reach 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C). Automatic transmission fluid inspection plug vw-07-00-7273.gif

  6. Remove the inspection plug from the transmission housing. Fluid is pipe will run out. If fluid continues to drip out, no additional fluid is needed. If only the fluid in the overflow pipe runs out, additional fluid is needed.
To Fill:
Automatic transmission fluid filler pipe vw-07-00-7274.gif

  1. Pry the cap from the filler pipe. The cap locking device will be destroyed during removal.
  2. Pull the plug from the filler pipe.
  3. Add fluid slowly with VAG 1924 or equivalent until fluid runs out of the inspection hole. Install the inspection hole plug.
  4. Install the plug in the filler pipe and secure with a new cap.

Hi. I have honda civic 1992, the problem is when I turn the engine off and try to start, it does not start, unless I wait 2 or 3 mins so pls help what the problem is thmks

One of two things:

1 - Coolant sensor for ECU that tells the ECU how hot / cold the engine is (bit like a choke) replace this as it is cheap and good house keeping.

If still no good then:

2 - Blocked tank vent - when the problem happens remove the fuel filler cap and try to start, if it starts fine the vent tube for the tank is blocked. Unblock to resolve. (normally the thin tube that runs down the side of the filler neck, some Civics do have a seperate filter vent on the side of the fuel tank)

If still no good let me know but I am sure it will be one of the above.

95 civic no spark

Does it sound different when you crank it over? if so remove the oil filler cap and look inside while someone turns it over, if NOTHING MOVES, it has a broken timing belt, therefore no spark.
