Default oil cap broken?

Hi, I'm new here. I have a manual 2001 PT (w flames ) I was adding oil today and was replacing the cap when I heard a click. Similar to the gas cap click (??) Tried to take it off and now it just turns. Anyone have any ideas? Please help!! Thanks.

Default Re: oil cap broken?

Mine "clicks" every 1/2 inch while turning the cap once it's screwed down (like a gas cap). If yours just turns counter clock-wise after the "click" and keeps on turning, it probably is broke. Don't know if they make a tool for releasing it. You might have to pry it off without damaging anything around it.
