Tap it with a wrench and then use a pair of pliers to twist but do not CRUSH DOWN on the cap itself, you are using it as leverage and not as a vise.

CAUTION, CAUTION, CAUTION

Use it as a Grip and not CRUSH THE CAP when you twist. If the plastic it brittle and it breaks, you may have to use a hammer and chisel and remember

Pcv valve I changed the head gasket in my 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5s and did a oil change and I had the oil filler cap off when I started it and it oil came out the filler


Oil supply to the overhead camshaft and valve gear is fairly vigorous and so some spray from there is to be expected without the filler cap.

Unlikely a problem with the pcv valve - they rarely give trouble unless seriously gummed up with carbon-type deposits and then a thorough clean mostly restores them.

Where is the filler cap located in my bmw 325i 2002 model


Your question did not specify what "filler cap".
The above response from FTjoe is for the power steering filler cap.

The following RealOEM link is for the engine oil filler cap (Item 4) which is square and black and is on top of the engine. It goes through the plastic cover into the cylinder cover

Won't start but did and stalled out won't start at all now and oil filler cap smells like gas


If the oil cap smells like gas, one of the injectors may be flooding the cylinder and the crankcase. That would not be a filter problem.
Check the spark plugs to see if they are wet.

My 1993 Ford Mustang convertible won't go up.But the motor is coming on.Also it will go down thou


There must be a hydraulic fluid leak somewhere. Check to see if there is oil filler cap on your hydraulic pump located in the trunk compartment. Fill if necessary with just enough fluid to raise the top. The reason it won't go up is cause it is lacking pressure from the low fluid

Where is the oil cap on a 1972 ford courier?


The oil cap should be located on the valve cover. Some V-8s had the oil filler/cap located at the front of the engine via an extention tube that was pretty much centered between the cylinder banks.

The oil cap on my car will not open. is there a special way to twist the cap? all i get is a wratchet sound while turning it but it won't open.


hi.

most modern cars have a ratchet on the filler caps to prevent overtightening (oil and fuel)
it should only click when you turn it clockwise.
when you turn it anticlockwise, it should not click, but if it has not been removed in some time it could be very tight.

if it clicks both ways, then the ratchet is probably broken and the cap may have to be carefully broken off making sure not to drop any parts into the engine, and replaced

Change oil filter


Hello, to change the oil filter try to follow this steps.

1, Lift the Passat with a car jack and place the jack stand underneath it and if don't have use a set of wheel ramps , make sure you brace the front tire so that the car won't roll.

2. Pop the hood and locate the oil filler cap and dipstick Passat cars have the dipstick on the front side of the engine block. Unscrew and remove both the filler cap and dipstick.

3. Gather an oil drip pan, new oil filter, socket or box wrench, filter wrench and cleaning cloths. Slide under your car and locate the drain plug and oil filter. The VW Passat oil filter is on the front side of the engine block. If your Passat is a 1998 or newer, you must remove the lower engine cover for access to filter.
Thanks

I have a 54 plate golf tdi it wont start but when you take the oil filler cap off it starts but you have exhaust smoke comeing out the filler cap hole ive already stripped the egr valve and cleaned it any...


Hi there?
It sounds like the EGR valve is stuck open letting the exhaust fumes enter the engine. Since the exhaust smoke has no oxygen then the engine won't start whout oxygen (fresh air). Disconnect the pipe going to the inlet manifold and see if the engine starts. If it starts then you need a new EGR valve.

Its blowing oil out of the oil cap why would this be ?? also i bit of white smoke then came out the back


The oil level may be too high.
Is the filler cap tight?
blow-by in the cylinder piston rign area. A wet test of engine compression will detect this.
A bad had gasket. Engine will be over heating as water is being used up during combustion.
Bad head gasket. Could explain white smoke in exhaust.

If the engine is overheating I would be suspecting a problem in the head area.

Good Luck. SnugglePants
