Hey there. Some types of aftermarket gas caps do not click and will tighten as much as you want. If you feel the cap should be a click-type or the original one was a click type, then get try a replacement from a dealer's parts store and not at an aftermarket parts store. If you need to have this checked, a qualified professional from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect the gas cap or replace it with the correct cap.
