147 Oil cap??????

Hi All,

The misses has filled her car with oil then driven off without replacing the cap. Funnily enough the cap is now lost somewhere between my house and oxford.

Do alfa dealers hold engine caps in stock?

Good luck with getting one.
(I did that too recently - made a right mess of my engine bay!), but luckily my oil cap was still wedged inside.

Re: 147 Oil cap??????

might be worth checking the under tray, things often get trapped on there so you may be in luck. if not i think the cap is a pretty standard size, try a local auto spares shop, if you really want an alfa one then try a scrap yard, plenty alfa twinsparks out there and im sure a cap would only be a few quid

I be more worried about running the car with an ever decreasing oil level than replacing the cap.

I did this too, most embarrassing as it was might garage that discovered the messy engine bay!

Luckily the cap was still perched on the engine cover where I'd stupidly left it! Never again!

I did the same thing last week, alfa dealer in Solihull had caps in stock £13. I managed to get a 2lt bravo one from a scrap yard which fitted fine.
