Thats what I had to do. I went to Napa and got another one.

Shelby427 If the engine is hot they can be a bugger. Let it cool down and it should come right off.
If you are in a hurry, toss a bag of ice on top of it.

Oil filler cap trouble

Does anyone here know why my oil filler cap is just clicking like a ratchet? It wont turn to come off and no matter which way you try to turn it you just get clicks.
Is there a trick to getting it off when this happens?
I am supposed to leave for a trip in 5 hours so its kinda important to know.

I will continue to search as well.

Mike
