Q: I would like to put a gas cap on the no-cap fuel tank. Does anyone know what year parts will work?

asked by on

I have replaced the no-cap neck and vent, twice. and the check engine light still comes on. Mechanic told me that a regular cap from a different year will fit. But I don't know the year. Can anyone help me.

My car has 100000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

There may be additional changes in the fuel inlet for the tank than just a different pipe. The different type of fuel tank may not be compatible with the older style cap style. I cannot recommend modifying the fuel fill. You may be able to check a junk yard to look at the older vehicles to see if they will work.
