    HELP! Can anybody in the Sheffield area sell/lend me an oil filler cap?

    I can't have screwed it on right after topping my oil up so I now have a very messy engine and no filler cap. It must have fallen off while I was driving.

    I have tried ringing places but with it being a Sunday I am not having much luck. Can anybody help me on here? I can't get one during the week because I am at work and my partner needs the car to drive the little ones to school.

    My engine is 1.6 16v Ecotec if anybody can help?

    Cheers, Ian.

    Only a thought... cut the bottom 1cm-2cm off a round yogurt pot or something similar and fix over the hole, it should stop the oil peeing out.

    Is it safe to drive like that?
