    Please use the comment box to answer my questions. Use a large pair of channel locks and break the cap top off, then you can replace. You are pushing down as you turn the cap correct??

Gas cap stuck won't come off?

Grab a pair of channel locks to get a good grip on the cap and twist counter clockwise. The back pressure created in the tank from the gas depleting can make the cap seem impossible to remove.

2008 Toyota Camry gas-cap door release is stuck; how do you release it?

Hi fellow,
Your problem has two options ;first, you have to inspect the interior wire that pulls the lock of the gas cap.If found cut you should replace it at the mechanic's. Secondly, once the wire remains uncut or undamaged by any reason, the lock itself might be jammed due to the rust or misuse. Therefore, you are advised to use some anti rust liquid it wil work. Good Luck.

Gas pressure buildup

Replace the gas caps with new. It sounds like the vent in the original gas cap is stuck and not working.

My gas cap on my 2000 E320 is stuck. I cannot removed the cap to refuel. It turns but just clicks and will not come off.

The only thing I can think of - is try to pry off the outer black part that is spinning..
If you can pry it off - you shouldbe able to turn in then.. This will ruin the cap - so have a new replacement cap ready..

Gas cover stuck - manual backup?

my Jaguar X Type gas cap "sticks". I can open it by wedging a corner of a credit card in the left side or the cover, then go in the car and pull the lever. There are two flimsy metal bands that hold the cover in place and they sometimes bend and then the release doesn't work.  it should open easily with the credit card wedged in; then bend back the metal bands into shape.
