I JUST had this same problem and could not find an answer, so I will post my solution for others to see as im sure you already figured this out.

mine was the type of cap that is like a medicine top, push down then turn. it was making a clicking sound when I turned it to the left, but not come off :(

i pryed it up with my hands and snapped off the top of it. there you will probably see stripped threads and a broken spring. don't panic, there is a lip on it you can simply take a big set of pliers (i used a pipe wrench) to twist the remaining bits out. then go buy a new one. i spent $10 on a stant. works WAY better than piece of junk that was there previously.

Have you replaced the pcv line correctly. Is the oil filler cap tight and sealing correctly. Check for broken cracked vacuum lines that you may have moved in removing the rocker cover.

The cap needs just over a quarter turn CCW to align the tabs.

Then lifts straight up.

Try it again. If it doesn't work, we can go over alternatives.

If someone tried to force it, the tabs might be bent or not spinning with the cap.
