Can’t open oil fill cap

Asked by Brnsnds Feb 12, 2020 at 01:24 PM about the 1974 Chevrolet Caprice

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 74 Chevy Caprice Classic convertible with a 454 cid engine. I cannot
remove the oil fill cap. It turns, but I can’t pull it out.

Are you just spinning the cap or are you pushing down on the cap while you are turning? You want to push down and then turn.
