I have a 97 jeep grand Cherokee. I start it and it misses every so may secs. Almost like a chug in reverse and drive its worse taking off. Always fine when I'm giving it gas. Some times it runs fi

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.

While driving,oil cap came off while driving,engine immediatly stopped,replaced oil,replaced cap ,engine still wont turn over...

Just some ideas. Your details a bit vague. How long did you drive without oil in engine? How far? etc etc
I would definitely replace PCV valve, but also get the engine checked so you do not take the chance of anything worse happen than there is.

No you will not be the first one to do it
as long as you copped it and did not run engine without oil should be okay top up to proper level put cap on should be okay
oil will blow out cap removed normal
Just a few links ans.Best Answer - Chosen by AskerI blew my oil cap off once when i had a bad PCV valve and did not hear it at all. luckily it fell in a place where it stayed while i was driving. If you blew the cap off and enough oil escaped you would loose oil pressure and blow your engine, and I doubt the shop had anything to do with it.

    just one comment, but others may be of help:
Docnick commenter-5000.pngJanuary 2008You probably have something very nasty going on. Just leaving the cap off will not spray oil all over your engine compartment. The fact there was little oil left in the crankcase proves it was forced out by severe pressure in the crankcase. This can be cause by a plugged PCV sytem, or more likely severe blowby, where combustion gasses blow the oil out of the crakcase and up to the valve covers. This could be cause by broken rings or severe wear.
I would not drive the car, have it towed to a good mechanic who can do compression tests and other inspections to determine the problem.
If you have severe blowby, an engine swap might be your best course of action, but find out first what the problem is.

Of course, there are a lot more you can read....just a few to help you out.Praying it is not something serious for you.
God Bless

Over heats bad and hard too start

If it's overheating from coolant loss,you've done everything but replace the radiator cap with the proper pressure cap.Find out what OEM cap is supposed to be and replace it.The one you're using is either incorrect(low)pressure,or is unnoticably broken.Posibly the rubber gasket is flattend or broken and never noticed.

The oil cap turns and clicks, how does it come off without just leaving the seal underneath? 1996 concorde, chrysler car

Try pushing down the cap while turning it just like a prescription bottle if it comes off and the seal is still onside you need to replace the cap it is broken

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.


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

Oil cap won't unscrew is there a button or lever

shouldn't be any latching devices on any oil cap, sometimes they just get very tight from heating and cooling. it's probably plastic so be careful but you can try using pliers. if you do break it get a new one don't try reusing a broken oil cap. if you have to drive to the parts store in it install the cap loosely for easy removal.

The oil port cap is broken

Go on the Internet and look up Sanborn. Also check your box and see if there is a replacement plug in the box. Most units are shipped with shipping plugs installed. There should be in the package with your owners manual a breather plug. This must be replaced with the shipping plug.

I have an oil leaks fgrom the tube that goes into the bottom of the oil sump. How do I fix it?

If you are referring to the tube that houses the oil dipstick it should be held in place with a small cap screw / bolt if you remove the tube you will find there is a rubber o ring remove the old and replace with a new one while you have it a part inspect the tube and make sure it is not cracked or broken befroe you install the new oring, if it is cracked or broken it will need to be replaced
