Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
it should be okay for very short, gentle runs, but you need to be VERY careful doing this.
without the cap, the cooling system will not pressurize. this means that the water could boil at a much lower temperature than normal.. if this happens without a cap it could throw out most of your water very quickly, with a real risk of cooking the engine completely. this can happen with little or no warning.
i would only drive without the cap as a last resort.
it can be done safely and carefully, but you do risk killing the car if you make one mistake
