Gas cap won't open no clicking

Although you might be able to remove the cap with a screwdriver and prying, there is a great risk you will damage the components (and yourself, for that matter). You can try "locking the cap", then applying pressure and slowly rotating it. If that does not work, you need to reconcile yourself to having a professional mechanic remove it. You can only wish there was a simple fix. While I can provide a link that discusses the possible causes, you are highly unlikely to remedy the situation without causing considerable damage to the vehicle. Mechanics have special tools for this. You don't.

Trunk won,t open so I can get to boot to open mu gas tank

Have you checked the fuse panel for blown fuses? If not, check there first. If so, check to be sure all the wiring harnesses in and around the fuse panel are tight ans secure. If you're really in a pinch and you have rear folding seats you can crawl into the trunk that way.

The gas cap won't pop open.. makes a noise.. i am almost out of gas

There is no other release. Take it to a mechanic or the dealer. Or else just force the door open to reach the cap. Is it just a door cover or the fuel cap itself?

I can't get gas to go in my bmw 323i convertible, help? The gas cap is very hard to get off now and the pump won't suction on when I try to put gas in.

1. Unlock the gas cap. Slip the key into the slot on the center of the cap with the teeth toward the outer circle. 2. Turn the key clockwise. The lock cylinder gives and allows the key to move. 3. Turn the gas cap counterclockwise. Unscrew the cap...------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Subru impreza gas cap won't open

Well, first maybe try pushing in on the cap while twisting it counter clock-wise. You may, if that doesn't work, just hit it with a rubber mallet. Simply break it apart and get a new one. They aren't very expensive.

How do i remove the gas cap which connects to the car. theres a plastic that connects the cap to the car. how do i take that off

The starp is there so the gas cap isn't lost, should be able to remove it from the cap side, unless your buying a fuel cap from the dealer you won't need the strap, after market cap has no where to attach it to.

Engine code po455

Check this info about P0455 - Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (no purge flow or large leak)

This indicates a fuel vapor leak or lack of purge flow in the EVAP control system. It means a large leak has been detected. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

Symptoms: You likely won't notice any drivability problems.

Causes: A code p0455 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
Other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

Possible Solutions: With a p0455, the most common repair is to:
Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Otherwise, replace the gas cap, and/or
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary

Check it and keep us updated.
