Loose Gas Cap

Question

i noticed that my gas cap is loose. i went to the gas station today, finished and as i was going to close it...it didnt. tried 2 more times and nothing. easy pull off. i try again, push in a bit harder to see if that works...well, this time it worked but its not a snug fit. you can pull on it and feels loose. also, the click noise it makes when you close it, it does a completely different click noise now. soo...what do i do? fix, replace? and wheres cheaper?

Groove in the plastic of the cap is probably off from you tugging on it :lol2: replace it and it should be fine.

The locking mechanisim might be shot. Autozone has them for $10-$15. Is it throwing any EVAP codes?

i'd reccomend a factory G6 gas cap, some aftermarket caps may not fit correctly and throw an Evap leak code.

My van was only 3 years old when I had to replace my stock cap. But mine was owned 60k in Hawaii, gonna venture to guess all that head dried up the gasket because mine was throwing a code, and I flipped. Now every once in a while my gas guage goes funky too, but, I'm not going to mess with it, I know I can make it about 320 miles on a tank of gas, so if I don't believe the guage, I just go to the station when I'm at about 280 :PGM's are funky these days :)
