Fuel filler cap turns but does not come out. Any ideas?

We used to have a lot of trouble in the early days of that type of fuel cap. Previous types of locking fuel cap invariably had a simple bolt that emerged from the cap when locked which engaged onto the bayonet at the top of the filler neck.

The type of cap that has a clutch that disengages when locked so the cap spins freely was added security against fuel theft when the price of fuel began to exceed the price of beer - as if a determined thief would be stopped by any sort of fuel cap...

It is true this type of cap is harder to overcome than the previous type. Getting rough with it and levering it off is likely to cause more damage to the filler neck and because it is fuel only hand tools can be used for safety reasons. Mostly failure of the mechanism seems to be caused by the ingress of weather and dirt rather than breakages.

The only constructive advice I can offer is lots of patience. Using a propriety penetrating oil keep applying it copiously through the keyhole, gently tapping atop and around the cap and then applying compressed air through the keyhole and around. Put the key in and move to the locked postion and repeat as many times as required alternating between locked and unlocked.
It has sometimes taken an hour but only once have I needed to resort to harsher measures since those caps arrived here in 1980.

Periodically spraying a quality lubricant into the locks prevents this sort of trouble. I use a spray PTFE/silicone grease.

White macbook 10.5.8 pop spilled on keyboard

Ooouch ! After you've dabbed up (the spill) as much as you can, you may find some keys sticking ... i.e. when you touch (push) it (down), it doesn't pop up immediately. These are the keys you'll want to clean individually.
You can pop off the key top off (with your fingernails) from the top corner of the key. Once the key-cap top (cover) is pried open, lift the key-cap upwards and detach it from the bottom edge. You'll hear pop's when you do this. Once the key-cap is off, you'll see the mechanism under it. You'll want to clean things as best as you can ... very carefully. If the underside of the key top (cap) is sticky/dirty, rinse/wash it (with water), dry it well (before reinstalling it). Often the "stickiness" is caused by the (white translucent) plastic pieces (at the very top) not dropping flat down (immediately) after you lift it. (You wouldn't want to disassemble the parts below the (white translucent) square plastic pieces. Just clean/wipe it carefully using a cotton swab/toothpick).
You can remove the top (square plastic) pieces by pushing the tabs at the bottom corners ... downwards ... using a toothpick. This "top" square piece is actually two (square) pieces (snapped together), one inside the other. The inside piece is supposed to spin easily/quickly .... if not. it's probably sticky/dirty, rinse/wash it (with water), dry it well (before reinstalling it).
The trick is to make sure you know/remember how to reassemble the 2 pieces (after taking it apart and washing/rinsing/drying it) applying the right connection points to fit ... before you put the key-cap back on . The key-cap is put in place by just putting it in place and pressing down to snap it back on.
The larger keys (Shift, Space, etc.) has metal bars holding down the cap, etc., so it may take more effort to pop the key top (cap) off.
If you have quite a few to do, and you don't want to risk breaking anything, the Apple store is probably your next stop.

My 1999 honda odyssey started then stopped , thought it was out of petrol , put petrol in , car turns over but wont fire , any help ,

If it did run out of fuel, and apparently that is possible if you immediatly put some in, you may have to cycle the key on and off to get the fuel up to the engine again. You should be able to hear the fuel pump cut in and run for about 3 seconds when you first turn the key to the "run" position, and then stop. You could remove the gas cap, and have someone put their ear to it while you turn the key. If you don't hear it run, it may be the fuel relay switch if you're lucky, or the fuel pump if you're not.

98 caddi deville small pin leak at top of radiator, changed cap to 10 pd , stopped leaking but when we use the air cond it over heats and needs more coolant getting frustrated

The radiator cap is rated for a reason. The higher the pressure the cap holds, the higher the boiling temperature is because the high pressure holds air in the coolant. By putting a lower rated cap on your lowered the boiling point of the coolant. Put the correct cap on and fix the leak. Why didn't you just fix the leak in the first place? You can use JB Weld to fix a pin-hole.

For change vacuum pump oil follow the bellow step: Press main menu then keep pressing up or down arrow key till display show "CHANGE VACUUM OIL" then press "YES" key.

Key no longer works in ignition. I stopped to gas up and the key I normally use would not open the gas cap door. I re-entered the car and the key would not turn the ignition. The key unlocks the steering...

take it to a lock smith to remove the broken part or you could jam the broken part down to where the ignition will turn with the broken key. I advise taking it to a lock smith to remove the broken part

My wife is stuck at the airport. the key fob on

On the driver's side door handle, there is a cap covering the key hole on the right side. On the bottom of the cap is a small ****. Use the valet key to pry it up and off. Then you may open the door, most likely sounding the alarm, so you will need to insert the remote in the ignition to stop the NOISE!!!! Hope this helps. This is how I lock my remote away when I go somewhere to run.

Gas cap... when you put the key in the gas cap, the key turns but it doesn't move the peg thingy that moves to open it. How should I get it off?

Try Pushing down on the gas cap the same time you turn the key. If that doesn't work then you will have to try and get the key tumbler out of the cap to get to the locking mechanism and take the cap off. Once you do this you will have to get a new gas cap.
