Driving with no oil filler cap !
Managed to forget to put the oil filler cap back on after checking my levels today ! Drove about a mile down the road before noticing a few wisps of smoke.
The cap wasnt where i'd left it, resting on top of the engine as I then remembered. Have retraced my route on foot, hoping to find the cap in the gutter somewhere, but no luck.
Couple of questions. Anybody know if there'll be any damage to the engine ? (apart from it having a liberal coating of oil).
Is the cap universal amongst 147's and 156's (or Fiats) ? as if so may try a breakers in the morning rather than having to get 20 miles to a dealer
Is it a bad idea to tightly fit some sheet plastic over the cap less hole to get me five miles to work ?
